It's all about trust.

Our relationships with our clients and collaborators mean everything to us. 

The work they do is not always easy, and we understand that being in front of a camera can be tough. 

That's why every step of our process is about reducing our impact and presence, 

so that what our cameras capture is as honest as possible. 


CREATIVE

Story mapping, shooting, animating, editing. 

At no point do we outsource the creative direction. We're the same team that maps out the story from the beginning in our Story Core process, that actually creates the image in production and refines the story in post-production. No handing-off to other mysterious cinematographers or editors, no dilution of vision. 

PROFESSIONAL

Project management, locations, dates, rates. 

We designed the studio and trailer to reflect our inclusive and integrated process. And we're proud to have constant communication and transparency with our collaborators - at no point are you left hanging with questions about our shared project. We work tirelessly to finish our work under budget and on time.  

TECHNICAL

Custom camera rigs, color correction, audio mixing. 

We are proud to own all of the equipment we shoot with. It frees us to shoot more flexibly, understand our tools better, and build out exactly the kit we need for a specific shot in advance. Everything from suction cup mounts to remote controlled jibs to the stedicam has been custom built by our team.
