First of all, thank you for joining The Movement! I hope you are as excited as us about exploring one of the fastest growing activities in the world, Pilates. My name is Mark Pedri and I’m a documentary filmmaker. My passion is seeking out compelling stories and capturing them on film. I would like to be the first to introduce to you A Movement of Movement.
Today is the official announcement of production and the light is green. The film explores the human condition in the context of Pilates. Many of you have probably heard of Pilates, or maybe you’ve even become passionate about it. A Movement of Movement is your film. Pilates has been spreading at a phenomenal rate in recent years, but what is really happening? Sometimes in order to notice that you’re moving, you have to stop and look at what’s around you. Ever since the dinner conversation that sparked the idea for this film, I have been trying to step back and see the movement. We are living during a remarkable movement of ideas, activities, and philosophy. You’re probably asking, what does this have to do with Pilates? My answer is, everything. We are living in A Movement of Movement.
Throughout the production of A Movement of Movement, we will be posting updates about where we are, who we’re with, and what we’re doing. I want to share the adventure of Filmmaking. Movementofmovement.com is a website built especially for you to stay up to date and be a part of the film. I welcome, encourage, and value you comments, so don’t be shy! The website is updated at least once every week with information about the film and also tidbits about the world we live in. We also send out a newsletter that you can subscribe to here.
I spend my days making films and feel extremely fortunate to be able to participate in such an amazing art form. While driving to Park City today I started to think, what would each person in the world make a film about if they could? Everyone has a unique perspective and that shines through clearly onto the screen.
It’s just something to think about. That’s how I got started 10 years ago. What would you make your film about? Or maybe the question should be, what WILL you make your film about?
UPDATE: Burning Torch Productions has been in and out of meetings these past few weeks with one thing in mind, a new film.
The details of the film remain confidential, but I can say that it is going to be a game changer. The idea has never been explored on film, and the people involved are more enthusiastic than ever. Take my word for it, this is going to be big. Every now and then a film comes along that has a message so strong it makes a mark on the world. We’re over due .
Check back to find out if the new project gets a green light.
