Serenity Productions was formed on the belief that production shouldn’t have to be an arduous or maddening experience. Our philosophy is that with a lot of hard work and ingenuity we turn what would be a challenging shoot into a serene experience. Being based in Florida shaded by palm trees and the roar of the ocean doesn’t hurt either but what it is really about is working smart, paying attention to detail and maintaining high standards.
At the helm of Serenity Productions is producer / production manager Stacey LaMotte, an industry veteran. It is Stacey's vision of a more balanced and easier experience along with integrity and a strong work ethic that is the driving force behind Serenity Productions and its success. With a career that has seen the mountains of Germany, the city streets of Buenos Aries and almost all of the United States, Stacey has learned that challenges are a normal part of the process and finds the means to a successful shoot by forming the best teams, finding the right locations, casting and equipment. Ultimate success is a smooth shoot, a few laughs and lots of good food.
The Serenity Productions' team has offered countless advertisers, agencies and production companies the abiliy to meet and exceed their wildest expectations.

Recently worked with Stacey on a project in Florida and was very grateful to have her expertise in the local markets of both Tampa and Miami. The production ran smoothly and the local crew were all talented and pleasant to work with; it's obvious that she has a loyal team of top notch connections both with vendors and crews. That translates to getting competitive pricing combined a team that is willing to go the extra mile.
Her own production team is polished and fully embrace the notion of what makes a great service team. Next time your production is headed to Florida, Texas or anywhere in the U.S. give Stacey a call and let her work her magic.

"I have worked with Ms. LaMotte for over 20 years: from Miami, Los Angeles and other locations. I have always found her to be extremely prepped, a born leader to the crew, and very smart with her budget. If I'm 1st Assistant Director on Stacey's job, I know that I am in good hands! Stacey LaMotte is at the top of her game; nothing more to add! In a commercial world of shrinking budgets, fewer days to prep/shoot/post, Ms LaMotte has always managed to stay one step ahead of her competition. She rocks!"
