  • Folks! Exciting news to say the least. The second addition to the “Jeff Ladd Project” is here. Con te Partirò (Time to Say Goodbye), composed by Francesco Sartori and Lucio Quarantotto is performed as a cover by the one and only Jeff Ladd of Jeff Ladd DJ Saxophone Plus. This is our second film that we have produced following our debut of “Hallelujah” last year. So proud to have been a big part of this video and can’t wait to see the “Likes” and comments flood in for support of Jeff and his talented work! Jeff is a DJ/live saxophonist within the wedding industry and a great friend of ours. Check out our latest video to the project! #jeffladdproject #mvfilms

  • Unbelievably excited to post this commercial assignment we’ve been working on for the past few months. Thurston’s Maria, located in Laconia, New Hampshire on Lake Winnipesaukee became a client of ours last September and we are so pleased to share with you their story visually! Some may or may not know, but Lake Winnipesaukee is a place that my family has been vacationing on ever since I was an infant. Years of family traditions have continued and news ones created with the growth of the large family. Thurston’s Marina and my family have a great relationship and I approached them last summer while out boating about working on creating a short film about their company. From there, it all took off and turned into what you are about to see! Stoked on the final outcome of this assignment. Can’t thank Ashley Coddington enough from Thurston’s Marina for all the partnership in creating this video. Shout outs to Nate Quattrini and Matt Bouchard for their filmmaking assistance and Jessica Cowell on an amazing edit job! Can’t wait for summer 2019 out on the lake!


  • Yesterday, Bushnell Park held the 2018 Susan G. Komen New England “More Than Pink Walk”. This year’s event was slightly different than years past with a different setup layout, course route and walk. Participants and teams came out on this most perfect sunny Saturday morning to walk and celebrate those who are survivors and remember those who have passed from breast cancer. An amazing turnout behind Connecticut’s Capital. Congratulations on a successful event to the members of Komen New England and Susan G. Komenl. Short film produced the very next day highlighting some of our most favorite moments. #MTPwalkHAR #komenne #susangkomen #morethanpinkwalk #hartford #connecticut #breastcancer #awareness #charity #fundraising #komennational #bushnellpark #walk #teams #mvfilms

  • Description from the CCDG Website: Collaborative Divorce is a team approach that resolves disputes without going to court. In the Collaborative Divorce process, you are in control. Family stress is reduced and professional time is used more efficiently, often resulting in lower costs and quicker results.

    Each professional has been trained in the collaborative process to focus on the clients’ best interests and to design constructive solutions which will safeguard the well-being of all family members.

    Collaborative Divorce is an alternative to the adversarial divorce process where professionals and the spouses or partners commit in writing to work together to help the couple reach a divorce settlement out of court which addresses the needs and interests of the couple and their family.

  • For the past several months, MV Film Productions has been hard at work filming, editing, interviewing, traveling and producing a feature film for the one and only 2016 Mrs. Connecticut. We are excited to now announce and premiere the film here as Allyson departs for competition in Las Vegas in a few weeks! Mrs. Connecticut inquired with us to create a film and we took it one step further and came up with the concept of producing a film about her life, what she does as Mrs. Connecticut America, her family and her work. This women does a lot as you will learn, and to add the “Mrs.” pageant on top of it keeps Allyson always busy. Check out this film and learn about her journey to Las Vegas coming up very soon for the title of Mrs. America!

  • The 2016 annual Race for the Cure Boston event held up at Carson Beach in Boston’s South Side. With the weather being a bit chilly, it did not stop runners, walkers, survivors, volunteers, and on lookers to come out early one mid April morning to be a part in the fight against breast cancer. This event would not be possible without the support of family and friends of those who are currently fighting the fight, those who have passed, and those who have survived. We are so proud to be a part of the Komen family to provide a short film of the day’s events and everything that Komen Massachusetts does in the search for a cure. See what this event is all about.

  • We have a great relationship with Komen Connecticut and all that they do for Breast Cancer and its awareness in CT. Since Komen CT has partnered up with Komen Massachusetts, the two work together to put on events both in CT and MA. Massachusetts’ Race for the Cure is held each year at the end of September up in Boston at Carson Beach. Last year, 2014 was our first year traveling up to Boston to film the race and with 2015, we were happy to come back and bring to you a brand new film of the event! With the Boston city skyline in the background, the race is always a great success and many come out to run, walk, and support those in the fight against breast cancer. And with October being breast cancer awareness month, what better timing than now to share the 2015 Boston Race for the Cure! Enjoy this short film. #susangkomen #breastcancerawareness #battleagainstbreastcancer #bostonraceforthecure2015 #carsenbeach #komect #komenma #komenmassachusettes #komenconnecticut

  • October is breast cancer awareness month. With our friends at Komen Connecticut, we teamed up with the staff to cover media day for the first ever Rappel for the Cure event being held at 90 State House Square in downtown Hartford with footage only those with a strong stomach can handle! With the actually event being held on Friday October 16th, 2015, we covered the day where the media had the opportunity to go “Over the Edge” and experience a rappel. Myself went over the edge with two GoPro cameras strapped to my helmet and back harness to capture once in a life time angles. Mammogram Man from Kiss 95-7 came by and did the rappel along with breast cancer survivor Susan Lane. Amazing job by all of the Komen Staff, volunteer participants, and the staff of Over the Edge! Check out these highlights from the awesome fall day out doing an activity for an amazing cause!

    Shout out to my man Abraham Texidor for filming some fantastic ground shots.
