We believe that creativity is innate but attention is in short supply. Both are needed to move your message forward.

Building engaging visual narratives requires craft and skill, and the process is only as strong as the vision. We strive to develop clear and compelling stories that are often more important than the visuals that accompany them. But it doesn’t end there. Embarking on a feature film, commercial, television production, or corporate/branding spot requires a focused message to engage the audience and captivate their attention–but it also takes guts.

Our goal is to use our hands-on, pragmatic approach and practical experience to hone each production, bringing as much original thinking as possible and emphasizing the aesthetics of that vision. Together, we can create touching, funny, intriguing, powerful, vivid, memorable, challenging, outrageous, puzzling, heartfelt, hair-stand-on-end content. Productions that will grab your attention. You’ll have ours. Join us.



Producer/director/writer Josh Murphy grew up on the eastern shores of Lake Erie, flirted with art, and dreamed of being a professional hockey player–or, better yet, following in the footsteps of his idol: adventure pioneer Jacques Cousteau. Topping out at a whopping 5’6”, the former dream seemed a bit unreasonable. After classical training in biology and natural/environmental science, he did what any reasonable, dyslexic post-graduate would do, and became a professional skier. But his creative urge got the better of him. After purchasing a Bolex 16mm film camera from fledgling eBay and befriending a couple of Norwegians, he embarked on his most ambitious journey–that of a filmmaker. Six years into a career which included worldwide travel to adventure locations, he knew he had found a calling, but one that could not be satisfied through action documentaries alone. Veering into the world of commercial, television, and feature film production, he realized fourteen years later that he had come full circle. Cousteau’s unique vision was not as much about his explorations underwater as it was about the stories he shared when he returned. While he may never have planned it, film remains his legacy. Would that I can be so lucky!
