Infilm Studios was created by Matthew Gale as a place to display and discuss
still and video photography. The “Studios” was first intended as a a bit of a gag
besides it just sounding nice. At the time there wasn’t even a single studio let
alone multiple studios. And that was it until...
He and his wife Lesley were watching the MGM classic Singin’ In the Rain starring
Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds, and Donald O’Connor. They had seen it before and knew
that it was intended, in part, to be a showcase for songs that had been in the MGM
catalogue for years. Further research piqued their interest and they decided to see
some of those older films including Broadway Melody (1929). It is regarded as the
first film musical. That led to an interest in other Academy Award® winning motion
pictures. Suddenly the two were completely re-writing their Netflix® queue exclusively
for the award nominated films; in order, mind you.
Fortunately (or unfortunately) they then decided to share their experience with
the world by combining Matthew’s professional audio experience with the website and
Nomination Fixation was born. That lasted about a day because the theme song Matty
recorded prompted Lesley to conclude that the proper title should be Nomination Station.
The first of the studios was a small relatively quiet room in which to record the
episodes. Now they have upgraded to the best microphones in the world used by professionals
in the industry to record orchestrations, albums, and sound effects. The Sonic Integrity
Lab mics are a real treat and give us at least a little class.
The second studio was created when Lesley urged Matty to create a photographic
studio to explore portraiture and still-life photography. The lighting looks great
and Matty’s photography is coming along. He still isn’t satisfied and is constantly
learning. Infilm Studios had then become an accurate name and that pleased Lesley
and Matty enormously.
Infilmstudios.com has evolved into a place to discuss photography and motion
pictures, Matty has created the Snapshot Guide for the photographically challenged,
Beary T. Bear has a page, and even Matty’s fever-induced ideas about the Magnum
P.I. movie that is purported to be in pre-production have an outlet. Who knows what
this little page will become? For now we are doing this for fun, but we are open
to offers that would make this a professional venture (like that will ever happen).
You are welcome to contact us about photographic or recording services. Matty
has been also known to create television and radio commercials with original music.
We like small business and hope to see the economy become very diverse and robust.
That takes strong small businesses.
