SUMPTUOUS MEDIA is a commercial production company specializing in tabletop production, motion control shooting, and stop-motion animation.

Beautiful food, liquid, and product cinematography are the essence of our TABLETOP work. The products of our clients become an aspiration once our team of food stylists and production designers enhance them.

Our Milo MOTION CONTROL system allows for precise and repeatable camera movement. This can make the impossible, possible and also save a tremendous amount of time on the shoot day.

STOP-MOTION animation makes the ordinary extraordinary. This technique allows us to take inanimate objects and make them as graceful as Fred Astaire, which can be an effective way to bring our clients products to life.
