MCP was founded in 2012 by Jennifer Widor Smith. Jen received her undergraduate degree in psychology and worked in the marketing and design fields before embarking on a career in film and video production in 2000. She initially split her time between Los Angeles and Portland (Maine) working on commercial productions and feature films before settling down in Maine to work ten years at Catama Productions as a producer, director, editor and videographer. Jen’s experience stretches from filming U.S. Presidents on the coast of Maine to working as a costumer on sets with mountain lions in the canyons of California, giving her a diverse set of skills and knowledge.
She welcomes opportunities to learn and gain new experiences. In the early 2000’s she collaborated with Portland-based theater company Acorn Productions as a director, stage manager and actor; and for Moviemaker Magazine as a freelance copy editor. She currently sits on the Board of the Emerge Film Festival. Time permitting, you can also find her collaborating with other film professionals on their own independent films, documentaries and videos.
We are excited to be working with MMGM and Paulus Design Group on a series of videos and short film installations for the Museum. Each project is designed to educate and engage visitors in an entertaining and memorable way. We are employing state of the art technology and broadening the borders of our storytelling methods. MMGM will be open to the public in late 2016.
The goal of Orton’s Community Heart & Soul program is to strengthen the social, cultural, and economic vibrancy of towns across the U.S. MCP was asked to create a series of short documentaries to record this dynamic process. We are currently filming the Community Heart & Soul process in Laconia, NH.

Jennifer of MCP has been instrumental with the Orton Family Foundation’s work in towns in the Northeast. We trust her talent and instincts to capture what’s important for our message and put together videos that tell our story, present a project, or clarify a process in an inspired and inspiring way.
By necessity, much of the time we have to work remotely, so our confidence in her is essential and her work is making a difference. She is a fabulous team player we can rely on to be responsive, creative and timely.
– Fran Stoddard, Orton Family Foundation
Moving Circle Pictures teamed up with Eveningstar Cinema of Brunswick, Maine to create and help manage their monthly pre-show program. The pre-show program is a combination of advertisement and entertainment which is shown prior to every movie and is a great way to reach a captive audience. Eveningstar Cinema is an independently owned theater located in the Tontine Mall on Maine Street – the heart of downtown Brunswick. The Cinema has a loyal local following and appeals to many people outside the area being one of the few art houses still around; screening movies that aren’t typically shown at the bigger cineplexes.
