About Us

Our Vision

The Third Stage culture is summed up in one word. Relationship. We view each interaction…with our clients, partners, colleagues, event hosts, and with ourselves… as an opportunity to practice warmth, empathy and curiosity. We believe that this culture is the ‘secret sauce’ to our success on projects and as a consultancy. We believe that innovation, creativity and a willingness to explore new ways of working is what allows Third Stage to maintain relevancy and industry leadership.

Third Stage Consulting is a recommended impact production service for BritDoc, Far Star Action Fund, ITVS, POV, Fledgling Fund, Rippleflix, Peter Broderick, Brian Gelden Public Relations, Women Make Movies, Abramarama, Blue Shift Education and the 2050 Group.

Our Approach

Over the past 10 years, Third Stage Consulting has become a leader and valued member of the worldwide impact production community. Third Stage routinely reviews potential projects and enjoys the privilege of selectivity. In general, the Third Stage projects represent acclaimed and/or award-winning films in the areas of social justice, human dignity, animal rights, alternative lifestyles, and personal safety.

We believe in building a very large tool chest of innovative ways to conduct our work. Thus, our curiosity in other industries constantly informs our practice—such as marketing, use of innovative social media, and client management systems.

We love and are enthusiastic about the film campaigns we work on. While we are representing a film, we are absolutely representing a cause. Prior to accepting a project, we consider the level to which we each feel personally impacted by the film.
