Who you chose to work with matters just as much as the project at hand. We believe that we can concept and execute ideas that are only possible when done together.

Our Manifesto

Our Manifesto

01
It Ain't About Us

Film production involves a lot of things: family, heart, humility, insanity, genius, endurance, and solving problems. There’s no room for egos. We are here to serve the project's goals and vision.

02
Good Work is Hard Work

Good work is more than pretty images and sound. (But to be clear, we’re still really into pretty content.) It has weight and substance and hits you in the gut. It is to create beyond mere images and sound and to communicate truth to someone right where they are.

03
Push Standards

Best practices are best practices because they work. That said, there’s still a lot of gray area in the production world. We push established standards to find better ways to do work that serves your project’s goals and vision.

04
People Over Profit

We like to do good work and make friends along the way. While we are a one stop shop for video production, it’s bringing in other people with their unique experiences and ideas that take a project from good to KICK A$$. Honestly, we just want to work with people and brands who inspire us.

05
Work Hard, Rest Hard

We hit the career jackpot: we make a living doing what we love! But we also value seeing family and friends, recovering from big projects, dreaming, and passion projects. Time off makes time on even better.

06
Equip, Educate, Encourage

We’re lucky to have had great teachers and mentors that have shaped us into the people and artists we are today. Our goal is to provide the same support and encouragement to young artists through mentorship, educational experiences, community and university workshops, and speaking events.
