Who are we? We're passionate visual storytellers.
With an 11-person team, we’re small enough to be nimble, with each member of our team skilled at more than one aspect of visual storytelling, whether filming, editing, photography, or animation. We're also large enough to field multiple video production and photography teams, and to complete virtually all of our work in-house, without the inconsistency that a dependence on subcontractors can bring.
We've been around since 2001, and we’ve won many, many awards (over 45 Telly Awards, for example). We’re proud of our awards, and believe they’re a good indication of consistent excellence.
We've been around long enough to know that to tell our clients’ stories, we have to understand those stories first. Luckily, we’re curious people. We want to know why you're unique, and how your product works, and why your customers buy from you, and what problems you solve.
We’re more than just a Boston video production company. Our live event coverage, animation work, streaming video services, and photography make us a leader in fully realized media collaboration for small to large companies, nonprofits, and academic institutions.
