Stillmotion education started as a favor for a friend.
This is how we approach everything we teach–as colleagues. When it comes to storytelling from the heart, we believe you can learn more from a well-informed friend than you can from the finest academic institutions. We bring this personal approach to our storytelling processes, books, online courses, intensive workshops, filmmaking consultation, mentorships, and speaking events in the world at large. Stillmotion started in weddings as a way to buy camera gear while in University. One day we got a call, totally out of blue, from the NFL. They’d seen one of our wedding films, appreciated our approach to story, and wanted to see what we could do for football. In a week we went from hotel ballrooms to all access for the NFL playoffs, San Diego vs. Green Bay. That relationship got us noticed by CBS, which led to the DP and camerawork for A Game of Honor, which went on to win 3 Emmys. What it really showed us was the possibility and value in us stepping out and telling our own stories. With that we took on our first entirely original feature length documentary, #standwithme the empowering story of a 9-year-old using lemonade to try to change the world.
