About Our Work

At the root of it all, we are storytellers. We have traveled the world in search of obscure and unique stories, shedding light upon people, places and narratives that may have otherwise gone unnoticed. We push our own boundaries day by day, shoot by shoot, and taking risks to deliver an aesthetic that shows our ambition for perfection in each of our films. Our product is the result of team effort, and is persistently rooted in the world of our subjects and the way that we bring their stories across. We strive for that elusive place where what is real becomes magical through exposition.
