What's Your Story?

What's Your Story?


What's your story?

We're really curious

Ideas may start with unforgettable experiences or glaring injustices or people so inspiring they can't be ignored. They can grow from exceptional events in everyday life, or a burning desire to taste and feel extraordinary parts of the world. As we work, we meet people and embrace world-views we never imagined.

Production is a journey

Whether we produce for hand-held devices or cinema screens, every project takes us on an unforgettable journey with people who open their lives to us. We build relationships. We expect the unexpected. And we encounter truths that should never be forgotten. 

Along the way we ask -

Why? What? How?

Here's what we do

1. We make documentaries for cinema & TV

Our documentary work ranges from intimate observational narratives to high-end science; from adventure and environmental issues to social history and the arts. From far-eastern Siberia to the Himalayas, from the Amazon to the Antarctic, we have made over 30 award-winning documentaries and television series in more than 35 countries.

2. We produce digital media for critical causes

Short narratives glow with meaning for brief moments; but their content is no less complex than long-form documentaries. The world wide web is the ultimate in arm-chair travel; a platform for the 'kick-your-door-down & sit-up-and-listen' kinds of messages.
