Thomas Hart is the founder of Hart to Heart Media, an innovative wedding film studio, which The Knot has named best wedding filmmaker in South Carolina in their “Best of Weddings” list for the last three years in a row.
Thomas began his love affair with multimedia more than a decade ago with Trinity Broadcasting Network in Nashville, TN, where he learned the basics of shooting and editing film. After two years of living it up in Music City, Thomas moved to Murrells Inlet, SC to oversee the television production of Living Faith Church for eight years. One fine day he was given the opportunity to film his first wedding and his creativity blossomed. He flirted with filming weddings as a part time gig in 2000, until he stepped out on faith and opened Hart to Heart Media to focus on making creative and romantic wedding films for couples who want to relive the happiest day of their life with their grandchildren in 50 years. On a personal note, Thomas is subtle, attentive and not the least self-absorbed. His first priority is learning about his clients, and making a personal connection. His work is fun, intimate and creative; it captures the emotional, charming and heartfelt stories of each couple he works with.
Thomas also runs sister company, Hart Media, a commercial video production company focused on communicating ideas with video. For the 2009 Presidential campaign, Thomas and his team traveled throughout SC, NC, and GA with Rudy Giuliani to produce and edit film on the fly for his YouTube page and official campaign site. In 2008, Thomas led his team to Ecuador to produce a short film for the Global Awareness Project, a nonprofit agency designed to showcase humanitarian, environmental and cultural activities in communities worldwide. And, in 2009, Thomas toured with Benedict Gospel Choir for a month throughout Italy to create films that documented their award-winning performances in ancient cathedrals and historic theaters.
When he’s not on a location or in the studio editing, Thomas loves traveling, and seizes any opportunity to globe trot for business or pleasure.
