Information is useful, but emotion is essential.
Decisions are made emotionally, and the most effective emotional medium is story.
We are a dedicated team of filmmakers who specialize in translating our clients' objectives into stories worth sitting down for, moving viewers and moving the needle.

Attracting Teachers to Delaware
There's currently a teacher shortage in Delaware, and the Delaware Department of Education approached us about creating a series of spots to address that. When we looked around the interwebs at other teacher campaigns, what we found were mostly lists of features and benefits. We decided on a different approach.
We work in many genres. Commercial, documentary, radio, training and safety, sketch comedy, musicals...
Our Process: How we filmmake
Our first consideration with every project is simple: Is this going to work? We have a thorough creative process of our own, but where there's already a great concept on the table, we're ready to execute.
About half of our work is helping agencies realize their clients' visions. We work in this medium every day, so in addition to having valuable input for the storytelling, we also have insights on where to spend or save on budget. Some agencies have even shared their research and invited us to the table to pitch concepts for their campaigns, and we've won awards together.
Wondering what filmmaking with us looks like?
We're different from a lot of other production companies. We have a full-time staff of 11 and a stocked bullpen of artists and technicians we love working with. We also have our own true sound stage studios (two of them), trucks, big cameras and lenses and lights.
Conventional wisdom says this might weigh us down. Our experience is that it makes us nimble and gives us great economies of scale. We don't need to spin up the entire machine every time we want to create. The machine never stops.
