Cristina Valdivieso and Jon Connor are a filmmaking team based out of Philadelphia. Their work spans many genres including documentary, commercial, and event filmmaking. As they began to transition to shooting primarily with DSLRs, they wanted to share what they were learning from our various shoots and edits. Shoot Edit Learn quickly evolved into a community of independent filmmakers wanting to share their experiences and knowledge.

As the blog grew and continuing their education became more imperative, the Masters in Motion workshops were created. In an environment that is filled with educational events, they set out to develop filmmaking workshops that went beyond the basics and focused on more than just gear. Eric Kessler from Kessler Crane has always been one of the biggest supporters of filmmakers and they are thrilled to have him as a partner for their workshops.

We feel incredibly fortunate to be doing what we love and a lot of the people that we’ve met along the way are still great friends. Masters In Motion has become more than a blog and bigger than a workshop. The community that has grown out of this has become a family.
