LIFE STORY FILMS
“Margot, you have brought your artistic eye for detail in your capture and your choreographic expertise to your editing, creating an exquisite movie of our wedding at Thomas Fogerty Winery. You have been an inspirational dance teacher and are a great filmmaker. I can’t thank you enough for everything.”
-Caroline, 2013 Winery Wedding in Woodside
After a Wedding, Mitzvah, Quinceanera, Birthday or Anniversary celebration, only memories, photos and videos remain. All too often, those memories fade and most eventually disappear. Photos freeze a single image in time. Videos not only capture the visuals in motion but also all the accompanying sounds. Forever. Imagine seeing and hearing the inflection and tones in your voices, the dramatic pauses from emotion, the tears and joyous smiles as you say your wedding vows, or witnessing the accomplishment and honor of a son or daughter reading from Torah at his or her Bar/Bat Mitzvah, or revel in the poignant and humorous stories told by family and friends at your anniversary party. As filmmakers, storytellers and artists, we capture and preserve the wonder and beauty of all these magnificent moments. You will relive the day, see what you never saw and someday share with those yet to come.For more information . . .

“Once again thank you for your fabulous photography and videography, immortalizing us with such consummate artistry. You’re the BEST!”
-The 2004 Laramie Project Cast & Crew, Analy High School Drama in Sebastopol
As a former professional dancer, I have a special love and flair for filming musical and dramatic events. Because my celebrated career with New York City Ballet, Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, Chicago Opera Ballet and International Ballet occurred in the pre-digital age, none of my work is on film. I would love to revisit these glorious performances of yesteryears, but they have been lost to all but the collective memory of the people who were there. I am thrilled to be able to digitally preserve the work of today’s actors, dancers, singers and musicians.For more information . . .
“The video was an overwhelming success this past weekend in Minneapolis. Over 220 people at the meeting offered nothing but amazing feedback. Folks were crying with laughter and rolling over in the aisle. It was truly a pleasure to work with you. We will be calling on you again in the future. You rock!”
