About Motion Art

The wedding film of Kaitlyn and Dan from Links Hope Island on the Gold Coast
“As soon as we pressed play I immediately teared up! It was the most magical, heartfelt film I have ever seen! Geoff and his team captured every moment, every tear, every emotion to perfection and from it created a wonderful masterpiece!”

“To watch the day unfold, to see all of our organization come together, to re-live emotions and to witness all the love shown by all who attended was the greatest gift. It was by far the best day of our lives and having it captured as a film, to be able to show our children, and our children’s children in the future, only makes it more worthwhile! Words cannot describe our gratitude enough!”

Meet Motion Art’s Creator

Geoff Schatzel - Internationally Award-Winning and AIPP Accredited Video Producer

I have personally filmed over 400 weddings both locally and overseas. I’m a native New Yorker, ketchup addict and owner of two French Bulldogs. I’m also a passionate award winning filmmaker that goes about each wedding I film with a sense of fun, romanticism and cinematic brilliance that will ensure your day is captured like no other.

I worked for ABC and FOX news in New York for six years which gave me an eye for detail and a knack for bagels. I covered everything from local and national news to professional sports including the NFL, NBA and NHL. I had the honor of winning the Michael Shoenbrun Award for Excellence in a Television Series and in 2015 I was named an ambassador for the Australian Professional Video Producers of Queensland.

So how did I end up filming weddings?

When I moved to Australia I attended a friend’s wedding as a guest and filmed it for the couple as a gift. They loved what I edited together and soon after found myself doing another friend’s wedding. Then another. Before I knew it I was working for a resort on the Gold Coast as their in-house wedding videographer. I developed a real passion for filming weddings which only increased with the feedback I received from each bride and groom. Documenting a life changing moment is a pretty special honor and I am so lucky to have found my niche.

I am humbled by the way Motion Art has been received in the wedding industry and I am lucky enough to have flown around Australia and internationally. Most recently I have filmed weddings in Italy, Fiji and New Zealand including professional surfer Bethany Hamilton’s wedding in Kauai, Hawaii.

Each wedding is unique and every couple has their own story. I’d be honored to tell yours.

  • “From the very first Motion Art highlight we saw we knew that we would have them capture our special day. Geoff’s experience and sense of humour put us completely at ease and made us feel entirely comfortable in front of the cameras the entire day. Choosing to have Motion Art at our wedding was definitely the best decision we made and we couldn’t recommend them more!”

  • “For years now we have been watching the work of Motion Art and knew that there was no one else we wanted to film our special day. Geoff and his team are professional, easy to deal with and extremely talented. From the moment he arrived on the day he got to work to ensure every little detail was captured. The way that Motion Art can capture emotions and piece together each part of the wedding day in to a video is absolutely impeccable. Geoff you have captured exactly what it felt like to be there on the day. You truly are amazing!!! No words can thank you enough!”

  • “When you arrived and you began to film the day, there was a moment where you were laying in the hallway shooting the shot of the dress. I was with the girls jumping around and having to pinch myself that you were finally there and that it was really happening. Throughout the day your professionalism, respect and creativity really shone through. Your down to earth personality made us all feel so comfortable and at ease made us feel certain that we had made the best choice. You both blended into the background and worked so well with our photographers.”
