Meet Motion Art’s Creator

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

I have personally filmed over 400 weddings and witnessed over 800 “I do’s”. 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 the 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 and had the honor of winning the Michael Shoenbrun Award for Excellence while filming a documentary series on leukemia and lymphoma patients. Which I agree is a total 180 to now filming your first kiss as husband and wife.

So how did I end up filming weddings? Well I’m glad you asked.
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 be flown around Australia and internationally. I have filmed in some incredible locations and met some amazing people. Most recently I filmed professional surfer Bethany Hamilton’s wedding in Kauai, Hawaii. (A serious pinch-yourself moment for a small town guy like me).

All weddings are unique and every couple has their own story. I’d be honored to tell yours.

Work

We believe our work speaks for itself. Browse our most recent projects below.

  • “From the very first Motion Art highlight we saw, we knew that we would have Geoff to capture our special day. His experience and sense of humour put us completely at ease and made us feel entirely comfortable in front of the cameras the entire day. After two and a half years of planning our wedding it was all worth it for such a perfect day. We are so happy that we have amazing films and photographs that captured the day from all angles so that we will be able to relive these memories year after year. Choosing to have Geoff at our wedding was definitely the best decision we made and we couldn’t recommend him 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. We were lucky enough to have three shooters as well as a helicam team to capture every angle. 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.”
