FSB086: Patrick and Amina Moreau

July 3, 2009

As we enter this 4th of July weekend, it seems only natural that we have guests this week from…Canada? Few people have made such a wave in the world of visual arts as it pertains to the wedding industry as our guests today, Patrick and Amina Moreau of StillMotion in Toronto, Canada. As the name suggests, their studio offers both wedding photography and cinematography and they (along with their fellow artists Michael Y. Wong and Konrad Czystowski) have literally become international superstars, giving workshops around the world on how they do what they do. Patrick is one of my fellow EventDV Top 25 video producers and what’s amazing is that he only first picked up a camera about five years ago while in college (er, I mean “university”). What you may find even more interesting is that they both were psychology majors.

In this interview we find out how they each got into their respective arts, how they eventually fell in love (or as Amina puts it, “infected each other”), their philosophy on the importance of “telling stories,” and we get to hear their take on a subject that is particularly related to them: inspiration vs. imitation. Because StillMotion’s work is so incredible, there are many other studios who attempt to emulate their style. Some have even had the audacity to actually download StillMotion videos and re-edit the credits to pass it off as their own. We’ll hear what they think about all that. And they weigh in on the topic of mixed media and “fusion.” Whether you’re a photographer or a filmmaker, this is an interview you won’t want to miss.

Next week we have an amazing treat. We get to hear from two giants in the world of technology and social media, who also happen to be terrific photographers: Robert Scoble and Flickr superstar Thomas Hawk. You absolutely WON’T want to miss it!

      Once I stopped producing new FSB episodes, I cancelled the old hosting service where old interviews were kept. You can hear a recent interview of Patrick on Crossing the 180 though.

    Hi Ron,

    Any chance that you can email this old podcast to me please? I have listened to the crossing the 180 one but would really love to listen to this one as well.
