Marlene Millar and Philip Szporer met in 1986 dancing in the work of New York choreographer Charles Dennis. Subsequently, a friendship developed and their professional talents merged once more ten years later when they embarked on the first sketch of what was later to become the video series Moments in Motion/Au fil du mouvement. They shared a Fellowship for the Dance/Media Project at the University of California, Los Angeles, developing new ideas, and producing work in the United States. Their return to Canada saw the creation of Mouvement Perpétuel in 2001.
Both have been immersed in the arts, whether in performance, journalism, or filmmaking and are deeply committed to promoting the arts and engaging new audiences through their blend of documentary and art filmmaking, as well as exploring emerging technologies.
