Celebrating 20 Years!!!
 
   ARIA Motion Pictures is now international. On the right is a frame from a long term upcoming project being shot throughout the Caribbean, while ARIA finalizes relocating it's main hub of operations to the Eastern Caribbean. Although ARIA has been shooting in Florida and has recently moved the core of the company into the Virgin Islands area of the Caribbean, for ten years the ARIA plan has been to move the operations into the Eastern Caribbean, at the request of the Oganisation of Eastern Caribbean States' (OECS) Film Task Force. This, in an effort to expand island production into the international media marketplace with the export of island generated content.
 
   Being staffed by a very small but very efficient permanent staff, ARIA is capable of creating high-end high definition content at big level results, from just a small group of people, and very minimal but efficient equipment. ARIA, being a forerunner in HD right at the beginning, knows how to capture a great HD product. Shows like: "Choosin' Cruising" are tokens to that achievement in HD content. In our show: "Why We Fly", there is some of the best air to air content ever seen in high definition! So far, we've seen NOBODY match our air to air shots. And that is a huge (and admittedly quite arrogant) statement. However, even within the industry, we still get rousing comments on just how good the images are, and how impossible it seems they would have been to get. No, it wasn't easy.

   With the move to the Caribbean, not only does ARIA benefit from fresh new locations and fresh new ideas, but we get to be part of one of the biggest, boldest and most visible industry developments to hit the islands in recent times. A whole new world is about to open up for the local people of these small island countries, and ARIA is very proud to be an integral part of that evolution. Community responsible content will spearhead the initial productions, with the starting place for it all in the industry training of local crews, creating a whole catalog of new job opportunities out here..
 
   For those not completely up to speed on their Caribbean geography, the island nation of Grenada is at the far eastern or southern end of the island chain, and the island of Antigua being the most northern, but St. Kitts is the most western and closest to the United States. The OECS is made up from the cooperative membership of nine island nations, such as: St. Kitts and Nevis, Antigua and Barbuda, Monserrat, The Commonwealth of Dominica, St Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines and Grenada. A few of these encompass more than one island. It is a paradise for production and production personnel. Why more companies do not try to take advantage of creating content which would allow (or require) locations such as these is a mystery to us. We love it so much we're making it permanent!
 
   These locations are no stranger to recent cinema, and are well displayed in movies such as the "Pirates Of The Caribbean" sagas. But, you do not have to have a script based from a pirate ship or a boat to take advantage of the overwhelmingly beautiful scenery and fantastic climate these islands have to offer. This will become quite obvious as productions increase with our new operations, and the new evolving export media products which will be showing up in the international media marketplace in the near future.

   With our HD production capabilities, we have great plans for showcasing every walk of life on the islands, with main emphasis for broadcast on HD specific broadcast channels. This in between ARIA's first ever theatrical release feature films, and all of the content which will be created with our support of new island producers and film makers. All of ARIA's current projects for video content is now 100% engineered for broadcast in 1080 HD.

Get ready... The best is yet to come!
