Starting Motivity Pictures in 2007 has led to incredible adventures and opportunities to tell others stories. David has been fortunate enough to film elite cyclists in the formerly war torn country of Rwanda; traveled the world with one of the greatest golfers of all time, namely Bubba Watson; and had the opportunity to point his camera at Shaquille O'Neil while he did a commercial for Zales.
David loves Grand Rapids and thinks it has been fantastic to see all of the growth. He is blessed to be creating videos for so many growing local businesses.
David believes that everyone's story matters and using video is the best way to tell that story and share it.
Mark grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan and attended Grand Valley State University where he received a B.S. in Film and Video Production. Throughout his college years, he worked as a videographer and participated in an internship through WGVU. His passion for working in the film industry stems from being able to hear and tell the unique, thought-provoking, and impacting stories of people from every walk of life.
"Stories don’t have a middle or an end any more. They usually have a beginning that never stops beginning." -Steven Spielberg
Filming & Editing
Troy is attending Grand Valley State University and studies graphic design. Through an internship he was exposed to photography and videography and has been dabbling with the two ever since. Using his knowledge from art school of composition, hierarchy, and the Gestalt principles, he strives to create shots that are aesthetically pleasing and captivating to the eye.
Troy hopes to combine graphic design, video, and other forms of art to create a portfolio of multimedia projects. But for now he dreams of surfing at sunset and driving foreign cars down highway 101.
