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.
