We are driven by the belief that we must create the change we want to see. We are inspired by effective social impact and we believe that together we can change the world. Our mission is simple, create powerful emotional stories that spur positive social transformation.
What We Do Best
Designing For Impact
Creating positive change is the reason we wake up every morning. We operate from a deep sense of compassion and empathy; and every work we create breathes these values. A film is powerful when it inspires and moves people to action. We collaborate with partners who help turn films into campaigns. We consider distribution strategy and how to rally our audiences to create the change we want to see.
Radical Listening/ Ethnography
We believe that imagination and creativity come from insights derived through listening without intent or judgement. We believe this is what separates great stories from ads and promotions. Genuine listening is at the core of stories that truly transform our world. Our experience lies in thoughtfully and respectfully entering environments around to globe, listening to the stories people have to share and investigating what we hear. Documentary is in our DNA.
Whole Picture Filmmaking
When we care deeply about a cause we invest our heart and soul in a project. Throughout the filmmaking process we are embedded in our subjects and collaborators world. The end result is a genuine, authentic, creative and collaborative story that usually turns into lasting friendships. This is crucial to the success of the film because trust and access is required throughout the journey of creating positive social transformation.
We love to build, make, engineer, innovate, iterate, create and develop. We see the value in tinkering, experimenting and pushing boundaries. We do it passionately and collaboratively.
It's our north star and our constant desire to learn, understand, hear, see and experience more is golden: Curiosity is our driving force in life.
Directing/ Shooting/ Editing
We are artists at heart. We love and excel at the mechanical and technical aspects of great aesthetics, beautiful moving picture, lighting, composition, creating flow from the content we capture, the sound we use to envelope audiences, the pacing of the edit and the music to embellish mood and feeling.
The Art We Create
Long format films created to spur social justice. We live in a time of great hope and great sorrow. We feel honored to have the fortune to tell the type of stories that capture our humanity and help shape a better civilization. Our passions and films focus on economic justice, ending the cycle of poverty, health, education and environmental justice.
- Short documentaries that focus on individuals who have experienced incrdedible and compelling change
- Brand films that take an indirect/ story based approach to capturing the essence of an organization.
Installation and Online Art
Besides film we develop environmental pilots, place based installations, community engagement workshops, VR films, events, photography and online experiences that are engineered to further the movements we are most passionate about.
Growing up small changed my life. As a result of a defective pituitary gland I went through high school and half of college standing a little under four feet ten inches tall. I sat on pillows so I could drive my car. Needless to say athletics weren’t my strong suite; I tried out for soccer, tennis and ice hockey freshman year and didn’t make a cut. Instead I focused on community service and volunteering, and never looked back. I went to the Philippines with Operation Smile, built houses with Habitat for Humanity, taught Down Syndrome children with EPOCH and attended retreats at inner city rehab centers with Bridges. The end result is that I’m a compassionate listener who genuinely wants to help others. Growing up with a mother who cultivated my fine motor skills and love of making art coupled with ten years of creative and strategic experience at a few of the top advertising agencies in the world helps me do it effectively. Armed with a full suite of professional film gear like aerial drones and electronic steadi-cams, and a great team; I’ve set off to tell social impact stories that change the world!
