Vancouver Film Producers
Against Clichés

We’re no activist group, but it’s true–clichés can ruin a great story. Who are we really? We’re a small team of passionate Vancouver film producers inspired by big possibilities. We love working with individuals, couples, and corporate clients with open minds and adventurous hearts–just like us. From wedding video production like nothing you’ve seen before, to commercial video production and editing services that capture even the most distracted eyes, our ultimate goal is to give that play button a great workout.

By working with us, your story gets the individual attention it deserves­–we won’t drown it in clichés. We believe your story should unfold
in a way that honours its uniqueness, and inspires the viewer to find out more.

Stories About Us

The video is absolutely fantastic…what a great job you guys have done. Everything from filming effects, transitions, music queues to the perfect use of dialog. We had goosebumps watching it and then of course I just turned to mush because I was so touched. At first I wasn’t sure if our song selection would fit, but you guys made it PERFECT… Also with the Tea Ceremony, it’s so perfect that my Dad’s dialog explained what was happening and also made it so entertaining to watch. We just couldn’t believe how beaming you made us look!! WOW!

Mathew and John from Capture the Moment Media were amazing to work with! We were initially very skeptical to have a wedding video done and now are so happy we did it as it was the best money we spent and our video will definitely be something we cherish forever. The video is done so well and we really appreciate Matt and John’s quick response and professionalism. They were very responsive to what we wanted and made us feel very comfortable. We love our video and would highly recommend Capture the Moment Media.

It is nothing short of a challenge to put into words what an amazing experience it was to work with Capture the Moment Media. Their artistic eye to even the smallest details and friendly attitude made them a joy to have around the day of our wedding. After having the privilege of working with John and Matthew, the phenomenal video we received a couple weeks later felt like icing on the cake!

Every once in a while you come across professionals that are not only super talented at their craft, but also ones that happen to be amazingly passionate and just plain wonderful to be around and work with. Dedicated to their craft and always looking for ways to keep their product fresh and authentic, John and Mathew of Capture the Moment Media, continue to delight us and our clients with their work. DreamGroup has had the pleasure of working personally with John and Mathew on a couple video production projects over the past couple years and they have far surpassed our expectations each and every time.

Visionaries, technical, patient and enthusiastic are just a few ways I can describe you guys! You never fail to surprise me with you knowledge and creativity. I’ve had the privilege of working with you on several professional projects and it was a blast! I especially enjoyed working with you on my promotional video because you really understood and captured my lifestyle brand. You incorporated my ideas and kept everything organized and running on-time with your video production schedule. You tirelessly work to produce something different and special for everyone and that is something I truly appreciate! Congrats on all your much deserved success!

I don’t even know where to begin. Gurvinder and I cannot stop praising about you guys to our family and friends. You are not only terrific videographers, but you are also amazing AMAZING people. You were so easy and fun to work with.


You captured every key moment that completes a Sikh wedding. I absolutely love the highlight video and the Henna video. Video production  was one less thing to worry about out of the million things we had to worry about on our wedding because we completely trusted you on capturing the biggest event of our lives. Thank you thank you thank you so much.

Perfect Wedding Magazine had a need for talented video producers to create film media outside of the standard magazine realm which is still photography. The cinematography and visuals needed to be exceptional, appealing to the top end of the consumer market. We found this talent with Capture the Moment Media – John Hilhorst and Mathew Collings to be precise. I met with these two fantastic cinematographers on more than one occasion to discuss concept and scripting. They understood my vision and all that was discussed, then they managed to take it to the next level.

I would highly recommend working with CTM Media…again…and again….and again.

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Capture the Moment this past year for our wedding video production. From the first day we met them, we knew we had to have CTM. Their work speaks for itself, professional and everything we could have imagined and more. They are extremely accommodating and are genuinely interested in customizing your video. Many of our friends booked them after seeing our same-day-edit. I highly recommend Capture the Moment Media.

Welcome to the CTM Crew!
Hold On, You’ve got a big hug coming your way…

Feel like sharing the love?
