In addition to our production services, we also offer pre-production consultation & post-production editing to see your project from start to finish.
WHERE WE GO
Our projects have taken us all over the country, and we're more than willing to travel for a great story. We know how to get ourselves (and our gear) to virtually any location at the lowest cost to you.
TOOLS WE USE
We have experience with a wide range of modern production equipment, from professional cinema cameras, to mirrorless and digital SLR systems. We stock Sony cinema cameras, Canon lenses, Tascam & Rode audio equipment, support gear, and more! If we don’t have it, we can source it through one of our trusted third-party rental houses.
