“Our mission is to tell the stories that we crave to see. Stories that give people a space to feel the struggles and successes of what it means to be human. We want our audience to be passionately invested in our characters and their journeys. To showcase the reality and diversity of humanity through film. We strive to use the different genres of art within the motion-picture spectrum in creative and innovative ways, and we hope to collaborate with all kinds of artists and creative types to produce beautiful motion pictures.”
