THE MISSION

 

My mission is to be a vessel of hope and healing. Both personally and professionally, I seek to confront and heal wounds by sharing undeniable truth, beauty and goodness with people.

As a filmmaker, I seek to achieve this mission by crafting archetypal stories with unique cultural expressions: to take my audience on an adventure to a place they have never been, and in that strange and wonderful place, to help them find themselves. Whether through laughter or tears, gasps or cheers, I hope my work touches something in my audience and leaves them better for watching it.

However, my primary mission extends beyond the screen, to my community of co-workers and colleagues that I encounter and work with on a daily basis. We are all living out a story, and the purpose of that story, like a film’s, is the character arc. It’s not about what we accomplish or acquire, but the change that occurs within us as we journey together.

THE VALUES

LOVE GOOD

Quality craftsmanship, like a quality person, has a way of building you up and reminding you that this world, despite its cracks and flaws, is inherently good. 

MAKE FILMS

We make films because we believe cinema is a uniquely powerful art form, capable of building empathy, offering healing, and expressing truth, beauty and goodness in magical and deeply meaningful ways.

SHOW THE TRUTH

When a story deeply affects you, whether it's funny, tragic, tense or uplifting, your heart whispers, "That's the truth, that's how it is."  To impact our audience like this, we constantly work to uncover the truth in each story, so that whether it's a fictional comedy, a gritty documentary, or a heart-felt testimonial, we tell it like it is.


There is some good in this world, Frodo. And it’s worth fighting for.
