Burning Torch Productions Announces its Latest Film

    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.

Help Mark’s photos find a Home!

With me trying to focus on my photography and filmmaking, Carrie has taken the role of Supervising Editor of the photography department of Burning Torch Productions.  Carrie has been working behind the scenes for quite some time now.  I’ll let her tell you what she’s been up to.

Mark has been taking photographs ever since I have known him, and even before we met he was capturing the beauty of every day life with his camera. He doesn’t leave the house without a camera in hand and after all of these years of the images living on his hard drive, I’ve decided it’s time to give them a new home.  His collection of photographs has not gone unnoticed, which is the reason for the new Burning Torch Productions Photography website. For some time now, friends, family, clients, and fans have been complementing Mark on his stunning photos and requesting a venue to purchase them as art for their homes, cabins, and offices. In response to your requests, I have put together a website devoted completely to Mark’s photos.   http://markpedriphotos.weebly.com/

This website has a gallery of his best photos for sale, as canvas or paper prints, organized into categories: cityscape, landscape (alpine, desert, and ocean), western, wildlife, lifestyle, still life, and black and white. There is also information about custom prints, additional photography and video services, and much more. This site showcases Mark’s unique talent with a camera and I’m sure that you will find a piece that will look amazing in your very own home. Please check out the site and browse through the photographs, and don’t hesitate to send us your comments and ideas about the website (you can do this by using the “Contact Us” tab on the site).  He is constantly taking more photos and I’m constantly updating the site so it never gets stale.  I wouldn’t recommend something that I didn’t believe in.  My house is full of some of Mark’s best gallery wrap canvas prints.  Let me know if you want to see what some of these photos look like once they’re on the wall!  I hope you find something you like and if not, Mark is always taking custom requests!  I will be handling all of the orders and custom service so please don’t hesitate to ask questions:)
