OUR MISSION

We dedicate ourselves to tell the pressing stories of our time,

to create awareness and inspire change.

 

Animals, humans and nature are struggling to survive all over the world as we experience a critical climate emergency, massive inequity and a sixth mass extinction.

The challenges we face are overwhelming and complicated, but we must face them.

As artists and as humans, we believe that shining a light on these topics is our responsibility. Together we will tell the stories of those who can't tell their own and work towards a sustainable future for this planet we call home, our Birthplace.

We believe change starts with awareness.

WHAT WE OFFER

CONCEPT & CREATIVE

Our studio was born from the idea that an original and powerful concept stands above anything else. We specialize in writing creatives that convey important messages and show audiences something they have never seen before, delivering awe and information simultaneously.
Developing a concept for your needs can involve script, storyboards, animatics and much more. Whatever it takes, rest assured that we will push the creative as far as possible. 

POST PRODUCTION &

VISUAL EFFECTS

We handle online editing, color correction, music, sound design, graphic design and last but not least, industry-level visual effects.
Our team brings years of high end visual effects experience working on the biggest blockbusters in the world such as Star Wars and The Avengers.
 
We have a global, close-knit network of best-in-class talent in all aspects of post production providing an unparalleled bang for your buck.

FILM PRODUCTION

We combine out of the ordinary, often extreme locations with stunning cinematography and strong direction.
 
Whether our project films in an active sulfur mine in Indonesia, is shooting entirely underwater in the ocean, is filming in freezing conditions at -40 degrees Celsius in Siberia, or in the comforts of a studio, our team never shies away from a challenge.
 
In fact, we thrive on them.

NEW MEDIA & GAME DESIGN

We love combining innovative storytelling with the latest technologies to create completely new experiences for audiences.
Using immersive media such as augmented reality or maximizing user engagement through high quality mobile gameplay, we specialize in creating interactive storytelling that will grab any audience.

OUR TEAM

We are a group of storytellers, risk-takers, go-getters but most of all, we are a team of passionate people who love this planet and want to see it thrive. Our collective of creative minds strives for change through innovative and daring ideas and never shies away from a challenge.
