Great videos tell powerful stories

"After nourishment, shelter and companionship, stories are the thing we need the most in the world"
- Philip Pullman
 

We are passionate about telling stories through film

Videos are consumed and forgotten quickly every day by the general public, but precision, experience and expertise make films that people will remember forever.  We are specialists at producing short, music-based video productions for events, special occasions and personalities.  Our unique style blends the rhythm and emotion of music with the beauty of motion picture.  Imagine what we can produce for you!

We create unique and lively video adverts

We tell amazing stories though film

We capture the moments that define people's lives

 

Weddings give us an amazing motivation to make films about people and their life stories

An important part of our philosophy at HSM Studio is to create meaningful and lasting memories of special moments in people's lives.  Although we carry this philosophy into our documentary and advertising work, creating videos for weddings and special occasions give us a lovely break from the commercial world!  The following productions are short highlight videos of wedding celebrations in 2015.  

Video: Wedding Highlights for Sonja and Deni in Sydney, Australia

This short film retells the story of Sonja and Deni's wedding day from morning preparations to the end of the night.  The celebration followed a Macedonian Orthodox Christian tradition, which included the bread-breaking and door ceremonies, as well as cultural dances and specific Church-based practices.  The challenge of the video was to show how many of the traditions were followed, as well as highlighting the sentimental moments of the day.  The film includes original footage and graphic animations by the HSM Studio team.
