One of the reasons I love filming weddings in Vermont is that the locations are always so beautiful. Art inspires art. And beauty inspires beauty. Beautiful locations inspire me to make my work beautiful, warm interesting people inspire me to make my films warm and interesting.
Last summer I had the opportunity to create a profile of Vermont glass blowing artist Simon Pearce. This is a still from that video.

I'm thrilled to begin this spring with a new weapon in my battle against the stereotype of the cheesy wedding video. I take only a limited number of wedding projects each summer so that I can remain fresh, attentive and enthusiastic with each couple, the rest of the time I work on other broadcast and corporate projects. This spring my videography and editing work on one of those (Vermont Spotlight) was nominated for the New England Emmy awards.
I studied painting at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and Film at NYU, then started a career in documentary filmmaking in New York City. I soon realized the city life was not for me. After time in Aspen and in Rockport Maine I came to Vermont for a seasonal television job in the ski industry and never left. I have run my own video production business, Madmotion, llc., since 1996.
I started Tweed River Video specifically for wedding video work in 2003. In addition to weddings I continue to work in documentary, commercial and sports video production and design.
