    INCLUDE AN OBJECT IN THE FILM

    "Everything comes to an end," said someone someone smart, perhaps Buddha or Krishna. That doesn't have to be true, though, when that something is immortalized on the silver screen (especially in digital format!). Whether you have a work of art that you love, an advertisement for your business or a keepsake item, we'll find a way to put it in the film, forever preserving it in its full glory. Please, though, no animals or children. Those are notoriously hard to shoot.
