Our clients come to us knowing that they need “video.” And we say “video,” with quotation fingers in the air. Yes, technically what we create is video. This is where we differentiate ourselves. We are filmmakers. We tell stories. We tell stories that stir our audiences souls. Our process engages the principles and mastery of the best filmmakers. It just happens that our medium is digital video. Your mission is so much more than a “video” or hiring a “videographer.” You want something that reflects the heart and soul of your mission. A living, breathing, compelling, tear-jerking, stand-up and take action tool that inspires others with every view. That’s why you want to create a film. 

We understand that the making a film is a complex nebulous animal. It can be expensive, time consuming and mistakes can be costly. We know how it feels to be standing at the precipice of a the dark forrest that is “video production,” and not know where to start. Never fear, we walk you through the dark forrest of creating a film with humor, grace and heart. We will emerge from said forest good friends with one hell of a story of how we got here and an award in hand. Our process isn’t all playtime. We back up our artistry with real business initiatives, marketing know-how and brand experience that will make everyone on your team happy.

All the while empowering you, our client, to collaborate on a film that you are proud to share. A film that demonstrates the importance of the work you do every day and helps raise money so you can keep doing that important work. After 20+ years in the industry, we have developed a process that ensures our pieces inspire others and raise money. As artists, this is our mission. When you book our team, you are helping us live our mission of telling stories that change the planet. The best part is, we get to do it together! 

Because our process teases out so many feelings, our films often become the cornerstone of marketing and branding efforts.
Bottom line, we love what we do and we know that good storytelling raises money and wins awards. 

So, Let’s get started…
