Hi. I'm Geoff Schatzel. I have personally filmed over 500 weddings both locally and overseas. 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 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 including the NFL, NBA and NHL. I had the honor of winning the Michael Shoenbrun Award for Excellence in a Television Series.
So how did I end up filming weddings?
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.
WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHY CAPTURING REAL AND NATURAL MOMENTS
KIND WORDS - LAURA & BEDE MILLER
"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 wedding day. Geoff and his team are professional, easy to deal with and extremely talented. From the moment they arrived they got to work to ensure every little detail was captured. The way that Motion Art can capture emotions and piece together each part of the wedding day in to a video is absolutely impeccable. For anyone thinking about hiring a wedding videographer please do it!! You will absolutely regret not having those moments on film. I know I would have had major regret if I didn’t. It might seem like a big investment when all the bills are piling in, but you will have these videos forever allowing you to relive your magical day all over again! Motion Art have given us a priceless video and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough.”
