WHAT WE DO

We make it simple

Production

Once in awhile we stumble upon a story that stops us in our tracks. We're always working to bring new stories to life and keep our right side of the brain cranking.

Consulting

We love to help other filmmakers take their film and campaign to the next level. We're always up to helping tackle a good story that's been well told.

Outreach

The process of developing the roadmap to bring your film to the world - from finding partners who can help generate buzz, to harnessing the right strategy so a film can go beyond the screen.

We are about action. We are about inspiration. We are about telling stories that can change the world.

COMMUNITY OUTREACH TOUR

Newspapers were cluttered with headlines of the very public act of violence against Rihanna in 2009. Overnight, Rihanna’s private nightmare became a public debate. “She deserved it.” “She is trying to get attention.” “She started it.”

DVD STRATEGY

A film cannot answer every question before the credits roll. If it did, the audience would have to sit through 12 hours and be demanding an intermission. But, how do you address the issues that audiences want to explore?
