StillMotion

22 December 2009

{Disclaimer: this post may end up sounding a bit dramatic. I swear to you, everything you’re about to read is exactly how I feel, without hyperbole or exaggeration.}

Okay now. Have y’all heard of Stillmotion? They’re a mixed media company based in Canada, but what they’re really known for (at least in the circles I run in) is their Same Day Edits. The idea with the SDE is that the crew films the day of your wedding up through the ceremony, then edits the footage to share at the end of your reception.

And it’s amazing.

Mrs. Penguin of Weddingbee recently shared an exchange with one of her recently engaged friends. Here it is:

Robin: We’re engaged!

Pengy: Congratulations! Have you heard of Stillmotion?

My thoughts exactly.

Ever since I saw Cheryl and Andrew’s SDE on the ‘bee, I’ve been yapping about Stillmotion to anyone who will listen. At this point, I think about 85% of my friends and family have seen C + A’s clip. I don’t have very good video-embedding skillz, so I’m not going to even try to upload anything, but if you love beautiful things, and you’re okay with getting a bit verklempt, then for the love of wedding cinematography, please watch the following two clips… and then every other clip on the Stillmotion site.

Cheryl + Andrew’s Same Day Edit

Robin + Carlos’ Same Day Edit

Thank you. But trust, you’ll be thanking me soon.
