Putting story at the centre of our philosophy allows us to create meaningful, award-winning content that stands out as uniquely our own.

OUR WORK

Whether it's a 30-second spot set to music or a feature-length documentary, story remains at the centre of everything we do. Some examples of our philosophy in action:

WHAT WE DO

Story is at the core of every project we undertake - it is the touchstone we rely upon to create, execute, and deliver content with personality and substance.

Create.

Here is where we generate the vision. We brainstorm. Collaborate. Focus on the POV. We put it on the wall. See what sticks. Get it on the page. We determine the epicenter of the story - how it can pack the biggest punch - and we commit to seeing it through.

Execute.

Production is where we put our theory into practice. We build strong teams of writers, cinematographers, actors, and technicians to carry the vision off the page and into the field.

Deliver.

In post-production, the vision is fully realized. Our editors find the rhythm, sharpen the narrative, and elevate the story. The message and the medium are fully blended into one.

"A film is - or should be - more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what's behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later."
Stanley Kubrick
