There's no substitute for doing the hard work. In fact, that's the most rewarding part of the process.



Decades of experience producing first rate film and video communications around the globe.

Anchored in reality, but prone to optimism and the lure of a great story waiting to be told.

1440 MULTIVERSITY Introduction
Our work

Our deep interest in issues involving children, education, healthcare, and forced displacement has led to two major projects exploring the education and psychosocial health of refugee youth; TERROR AND HOPE, THE SCIENCE OF RESILIENCE and LESSONS OF BASKETBALL AND WAR.  Both films are currently in global distribution and have appeared in multiple national and international film festivals. See more about these documentaries on this website.  But whether the film or video's story is informative or commercial,  it all comes down to a well-told story. Is the subject compelling? Is the media and format the most appropriate means of delivery? Is there a clear call to action?

Selected honors include: Gold World Medal – New York Festivals International Television and Film Awards; several Cine Golden Eagle awards; Gold Medal – Houston International Film Festival; Crystal Award of Excellence - Communicator Awards; Gold Camera - International Film & Video Festival; American Film Institute Independent Filmmakers grant; Nichols Fellowship in Screenwriting quarter finalist; Official Selection at more than a dozen recent US and international film festivals.
