The Knox Foundation works tirelessly in Hartford, CT to keep the city green. We are always delighted when they get in touch, often inviting us to hear about their great work within impoverished communities across the city. Here we have our latest film which we created for them whilst attending their recent fundraising event. Fantastic food, beautiful gardens and a wonderful cause.
Whilst working on various other projects in stages of scripting and editing we decided it was time to pick up the camera and see what we could find. The answer… Lobsters! Here you can see our documentary on the often unseen efforts that bring those bright red crustaceans to our plates.
Created for the 3S Artspace website, this short promotional documentary has allowed this fledgling organization to concisely share their plans, ethos and activities with a wider audience.
The day has come when Flora can no longer cope with her early onset dementia, and it's up to Ishbel to determine the next step before she loses her sister completely.

Produced in 48 hours for a DV Info competition, Here's to You is a fictional piece experimenting with the idea that stories can be told even when visuals are tightly controlled and dialogue is taken away,
Proximity Lab created this fun game, and we helped them showcase it by creating this simple short so they could add this work to their online portfolio.
In 2009 we worked with the Edinburgh Art Festival to create mini-docs showcasing the various exhibits, events and artists. These films were used in a viral video campaign that increased the visibility of the festival, whilst also allowing them to document the program effectively.

When pitching to the Federal Government, this organization needed to showcase what their mobile application could do. The best way for them was to have us create a short product demonstration that they played during their session. Not only products, but also services can easily be demonstrated in this way to clients, investors and shareholders.
Here you can see the trailer for our current documentary that was filmed in community gardens throughout the North East of America. This film aims to highlight a simple yet necessary solution to the issues and inequalities within America's food industry, by meeting gardeners who are taking food production into their own hands for themselves and their communities. The full length documentary is due to be released early 2014.
The Edinburgh International Science Festival happens every year, and it takes over the city with unique exhibits, talks and events.

No need to make a cup of tea (or coffee), we'll be brief: we make films, and we love doing it.
Our films tell stories. Sometimes they're our stories, sometimes they're your stories, sometimes they're true, and sometimes they're made up. No matter what, the quest for good storytelling drives our entire approach: we strive for beautiful images, the right words and sounds, precise editing, and to be attentive to the audience.
Our two-person team formed when we met eight years ago, and we've been creating things together ever since. Michael is meticulous about the details and Catherine always has her eye on the big picture. Michael knows equipment, lenses, and light; he's often holding the camera, while Catherine's understanding of people puts her in the (figurative — we don't actually have one) director's chair. Both of us are excited by the process and by getting our hands dirty at every stage — from the idea, to the shoot, to the final product.
But that's enough about us, why not tell us a bit about you, your business, or your organization? Do you have a story you'd like to tell — at an event, online, on TV, on the big screen, or anywhere else for that matter? We can help — so come say hello.
