“MOVEMENT” is the quality of cinema that separates it from every other visual art form. Visual Story is at the heart of CM Cinema.
We are a full service video production company. We start with developing a story concept and script along with a production plan, then we go out and shoot your film, bring it back into post-production and deliver to you a finished, polished film that tells your one of a kind story.
From developing an idea or concept, to filming all the way through post-production. We are committed to crafting engaging, high-quality visual stories that enlighten and inspire. Whether it’s our own film or a client’s, each project is developed by identifying its individual needs and discovering its possibilities. The purpose is always the same: a polished, authentic story, ready to distribute, share and experience.
CM Cinema is based in the greater DC/Maryland/Virginia area but we love to travel and are always taking the show on the road. We specialize in commercials, promotional web videos, documentaries, short narrative fiction films, music videos and weddings.
