The Canon Creative Studio opens in conjunction with the festival and is located directly on Park City’s iconic Main Street. It creates a hub for filmmakers and invited guests to engage in hands-on experimentation and exploration from pre-production through production and post.

Headshots will be captured on the Canon 5D Mark IV by Michael Ori and retouched by Joey Joanitis (DIT - Ori Media). Images will be printed on the spot with a Canon Pro-1000 printer, providing a physical 8x10 image. On-site IMDb Pro Staff will be available for immediate upload, and images will be subsequently available at orimedia.com/sundance.

Ori Media and Canon

Michael’s relationship with Canon began in 2012 through a “Quit Smoking” campaign involving the innovative use of stills-from-motion 4K video on Canon’s versatile workhorse, the Canon EOS 1D C.  From the initial discovery, the Ori Media  team have field-tested and reviewed numerous Canon cameras - most recently the highly anticipated 5D Mark IV camera. Michael and Joey subsequently joined Canon for a month long press tour through Vietnam, South Korea, Thailand, Beijing and Hong Kong, commencing with a live demonstration at Canon’s Festival of Photography.  The Canon 5D Mark IV will be available for live-learning opportunities at the Canon Creative Studio.

Beehive Startups

"Utah’s startup community is rising. This community, fueled by the successes and failures of entrepreneurs across the Beehive State, offers a multitude of options: events, mentors, investors, wisdom, the list goes on and on. You’ve heard the old sports cliche, “There is no I in team,” but that mantra works across all industries and fields. A community is many different people pushing aside egos, learning, teaching, and most importantly, belonging.

It’s this sense of community that has driven Michael Ori to create Studio Elevn, a Salt Lake City collaborative art studio that gives artists a place to work, connect, and belong.

“It’s all about getting rid of the egos and just seeing the value in everybody and the community, just pushing that out there and helping each other,” Ori told Beehive Startups. “That’s the biggest thing, remembering who helped you and making sure you help them when you can.”

'Moments' in SLC

(Salt Lake City, UT)- Local production company, Ori Media had their official Brooklyn debut on August 18th at the Made in NY Media Center. The team took up an exciting offer from Canon to come up with an entire gallery featuring their work in order to show how they utilize Canon’s technology.

Their project titled, Moments, included a captivating 5 minute film to be viewed in MINY Media Center’s screening room, a spliced up version of the Moments film displayed on a multi-display media wall with 27 screens, and a still photo gallery complete with a live capturing of the last image to complete the gallery.

Ori Media was selected to kick off Canon’s From Light to Ink Campaign at the end of June 2014. The campaign highlights a process which literally shows how you can go from light to ink by recording 4K video with Canon’s EOS 1D C, ripping stills from the video, and then instantly printing high quality images with Canon’s large-format ImagePROGRAF printer.

Ori Media Founder and Creative Director, Michael Ori, acknowledges, “Shooting 4K is the only way now. Not only are we more satisfied with the final product, but our clients time and money is utilized in the most efficient and effective way possible.”

Ori Media was more than excited to show off their work in NY. The main reason being that they wanted NY to see what an incredible place they come from. Moments is comprised of 99% Utah scenic beauty. The team has the ultimate goal of bringing more business to SLC and the broader Utah surroundings. In order to pay homage to their beloved hometown, they are hosting a viewing of Moments at their very own, Studio Elevn on September 18th, 2014.

Ori Media and Studio Elevn welcome anyone and everyone with an appreciation for art, film, photography and top of the line gear. The evening will kick off at 7:00 PM and conclude around 10:00 PM. There will be 2 viewings of the film at 8:00 PM and 9:00 PM. Support your local family and join the team in celebration of their accomplishments.

CITY WEEKLY - GODS, HEROES & MONSTERS

GODS, HEROES & MONSTERS FINDS ARTISTS
INVESTIGATING SYMBOLS OF POWER.

In the ancient world, the understanding of the universe and our place in it was framed by myths, with power figures functioning as symbols for processes of creation and destruction, life and death. Throughout the centuries, these characters have provided fertile subject matter for art. More recently, archetypal power figures have been used to critique sociopolitical power structures in society. The group exhibit Gods, Heroes & Monstersat Studio Elevn examines renderings of both classical and contemporary power figures. A portion of the proceeds generated from art sales and donations during the exhibition will benefit Equality Utah.

CITY WEEKLY GAVIN'S UNDERGROUND

"Looking behind the scenes at our local entertainment, it's become increasingly difficult to be proficient in just one thing from a promotional standpoint. Companies that work in the fields of photography, video, commercial audio and other like them are realizing that entertainers can no longer afford to work with several businesses at once. They need an all-in-one location, which has caused many to expand their companies to incorporate many areas and bring in more clients than they had seen previously.

One of the more recent to join this trend is Studio Elevn, a multimedia collaborative production space founded by filmmaker and photographer Michael Ori, along with a crack team of professionals including Heidi Gress, Abbey Tate and KD Rhodes, to provide a unique environment for creative individuals to utilize multiple areas including graphic design, Web design, audio/video, photo and more. Today, I chat with Ori about his career in the business, forming Elevn, the work they're doing and thoughts on where they're headed as an organization."
