We cover the whole production process – from pre-production to post. We’ll develop the concept, write the script, shoot, edit, animate, color grade, mix, render, and export. We take pride in our filmic cinematography, and our innovative editing technique. From script to screen, we’re truly a one-stop-shop.
Heavily influenced by our cinematographic style, our motion graphics & animation prowess is a step above. Elegant. Beautiful. Exciting. Truly unique cinematic creations. Whether a simple logo treatment, or a living animated world – animation adds a new dimension to any production.
To us, story is king. Every word we write, every shot, every light, every edit, grade, and animation – every decision we make exists to further the story. Film is more than the conveyance of information. It has the power to evoke strong emotion in the viewer. We craft every element of production to enhance the cinematic experience of the audience.
Michael started LampHouse Films (then msCinema) in 2009. His true passion and skill is creating beautiful visuals. Whether through filmic cinematography or motion graphics animation, he’s never satisfied unless he’s stretching himself creatively.
Josh’s directing career started in 2014 when he partnered with Michael Schmucker to build LampHouse Films. He has since gone on to direct numerous and commercials for TV and the Web. Josh’s passion for telling stories comes across in each LampHouse film through his unique, infectious and engaging directorial style.
LampHouse Films is based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. That’s within a short drive to most of the east coast. New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Baltimore, and Washington D.C. are a day trip away. And we’ll travel anywhere in the world, as long as the story is great. We’re not kidding when we say we love great stories. If you’ve got a story to tell, we’d love to hear from you!
