Who we are…

We are artists and creators who have dedicated our skills and talents to heartfelt story telling. We live a life of curiosity, passion and discovery in which we seek genuine connection with each of the people we are fortunate enough to work with. We dig deep to find the heart of each story we create. We believe that the process of discovery – of digging deep, building relationships, and investing emotionally – is as important as what goes on the screen. This is what distinguishes us from other production companies. To us, our craft is much more than creating beautiful images. To tell a truly compelling story, we must fully understand it. Understanding a story takes effort and most of all Heart!

We Go Deep Into The Story

Pre-Production

Ideas and Inspiration are the foundation of this phase. We spend lots of time digging deep into the heart of each story we tell. We take the time to get to know our clients, listening close to their vision, goals, needs and in doing so are able to develop the perfect solutions.

Production

Here we have a blast playing with our cameras and other story telling toys. We work efficiently, to make the best use of the time we have with our clients.

Post Production

Here we refine the art we have created. Color grading, music composition or licensing, final edits and tweaks to make your project shine and have your story told in the best way possible.

Delivery

Here we congratulate each other with an energetic high 5! We deliver various versions of the final piece, optimized for the various outlets used in distribution. Your audience gets to experience the passion, joy and heart that we put into the project.
