Aether Motion is a full-time video production company located in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina. It was founded in 2016 by Michelle Iannantuono, who is behind the camera and the editing window of every project that goes through Aether Motion. We have offices at home and at Black Bear Studios in West Ashley!
Michelle Iannantuono is a lot of things - Charleston native, writer, cinematographer, graphic artist, chemist, ex-cancer researcher, and NASA intern alumna. She filmed her first short film at age 12, and has since created countless shorts, PSAs, music videos, and featurettes, which have been screened at the My Rode Reel, Crimson Screen, and ConCarolinas film festivals. Through years of experience, she has grown proficient in Adobe Photoshop, After Effects, and Premiere.
In addition to cinematography and directing, she has also provided audio services for three other short films. As Director of Photography and Editor for Aether Motion, Michelle would love to donate her broad range of skill to bring your vision to life!
