Inspiring audiences into activism that results in sustainable positive social impakt©.

We develop unique stories to increase the visibility of underrepresented voices (from the LGBTQIA+, Black, Indigenous, People of Color, and people with disabilities communities), and we harness these stories to educate others and advocate for marginalized communities through partnerships with non-profit organizations.

We demonstrate that we can affordably implement environmentally sustainable practices in the independent entertainment industry to do our part to leave this earth better than we found it.

We strive to create a positive, inclusive, and innovative environment; and we advocate for our community in order to develop the next generation of independent artists, musicians, and filmmakers.

We acknowledge the original landowners of the land on which we operate, will educate ourselves on their history, and engage with the communities to identify opportunities for support.
