Emotion picture artists

Experience true cinematic power…

 

We believe…

Emotion is the driving force behind people’s decision making. The word “emotion” dates back to 1579, when it was adapted from the French word émouvoir, which means “to stir up”. Across history are countless examples of people defying the odds because they ‘followed their heart’ or ‘listened to their gut’ when everyone told them different. What we know today is, the ‘heart’ or ‘gut’ they referred to was actually the inner most region of the brain, aka, our emotional center.

This is where we make all of our decisions, yet this part of our brain has no capacity for language. Hence the term ‘gut feeling’, meaning we know its right, but literally can not describe why with words.

What Makes Us Unique

Crafted properly, a single video can emotionally engage millions in the blink of an eye. It can transcend language barriers, leapfrog cultural divides, and speak directly to the soul. This is the vast power of cinema in today’s world.

It’s about more then resolution, or the latest gear, or buzz word. It’s about building a relationship with your audience that lasts.

At edit cellar, we craft videos that stimulate and elicit emotion. This state of feeling can ‘stir up’ physical and psychological changes that impact behavior. Now that’s true cinematic power.
