What we do.

There are some things about every project that are givens. The concept and direction are of course two, and another very important one is the budget. The first challenge is working to keep the overhead low and the production value high: staying under budget and exceeding expectations. The outcome is the result of hard work and getting creative when confronted by constraints in every form.

Where we do it.

From port to port, country to country, state to state – we have navigated the countless logistical left turns that inevitably occur on every location shoot and every project. We shoot in the tropics and we shoot in the arctic, in friendly countries and one’s that aren’t so friendly. On set or stage and crewed up, we have produced award winning music videos and narrative works, compelling documentaries and features. We do cool stuff but are total geeks at heart. We love and appreciate the nuances that make a good edit sing and that perfect shot stand out.
