Mili and Sid of Memories in Motion, spend nearly 300 to 400 hours, to produce for their wedding clients a Bollywood-style film. The bride, groom and their families get to experience the process of film making at a full production level, and get to star in the movie directed and edited by Memories in Motion!
Mili, a communications and journalism major and her husband Sid, an IIT graduate who teaches at the University of Illinois started the boutique cinematography outfit in 2005, when they saw the potential for niche high-end cinematography for South Asian weddings. They don’t take on too many clients every year, but they innovate on production and post-production every season. Says Mili: “Just recently we did a same-day edit of a morning wedding. So at the evening reception, the guests got a visual treat—a beautiful video showcasing the couple’s love story, and edits of the morning wedding function which many had not attended.”
Mili and Sid have filmed Indian weddings all over the world, but their favorite location is Udaipur. They recently filmed the wedding of a couple named Roshni and Suchet at Zenana Mahal and Jagmandir Palace in Udaipur which featured performances by Daler Mehndi and Rodney.
They have also started offering concept short films based on the bride and groom’s love stories- and this is something most couples love to screen at one of their wedding events. Here’s the link to the wedding video of Champaign, IL based Amandeeo & Supreet.
And Los Angeles based Reshma and Harsheel.
