“Stories show us how to bear the unbearable, approach the unapproachable, conceive the inconceiveable. Stories provide meaning, texture, layers and layers of truth.” Joseph Campbell



We provide customized wrap around impact production services to social justice documentary film campaigns. Taking on a small number of film campaigns ensures that your project will get the personal and flexible service needed to run a campaign. We are incredibly proud of the films and campaigns we work with and will passionately represent your film with the love and merit it deserves!

We are passionate about the films we work with and working with filmmakers, educators, advocates and activists, we will strive to move your film campaign past production and distribution into the “third stage” of long-term IMPACT.



We will work with your team to develop a goal-based strategic plan and budget that provides the blueprint for your campaign.  We will build on your partnerships and research and develop additional NGO and governmental partnerships.  We are also able to execute your strategy. We do this by working closely with your team to embed in the issues and change agenda that places your film in a position to influence and inspire. Film protagonists are often key to inspiration and change so when needed, we love meeting and working with the heroes and heroines of your film!
