Who we are

Shoy Pictures is a Toronto based production company founded by two brothers, Matthew and Dylan Shoychet.  Shoy Pictures primarily works within film and shorts, documentary and all narrative genres of storytelling.  Shoy Pictures also offers production and services for corporate videos and advertising, as well as special event videography and editing.

Like its founding brothers, the passion of Shoy Pictures is the transformation of vision into reality through storytelling, and by doing so, emotionally connecting to audiences.  Working with clients as collaborators, Shoy Pictures treats every project differently, uniquely and open-mindedly. They do not just meet expectations, they exceed them.
