Who we are

We are content creators from Chicago who are passionate about storytelling.  We offer full service video, photo, and creative direction for clients who don't have internal resources but still need top quality content.  We are able to act almost as a member of your company… we’re only a phone call away from creating great content together.

We Are Storytellers


It's more than a bunch of fancy pictures edited together.  It's about finding a cohesive story to tell your audience, so that they want to tell their friends.

We Are Storytellers


It's more than a bunch of fancy pictures edited together.  It's about finding a cohesive story to tell your audience, so that they want to tell their friends.

We specialize in storytelling.  It's what we're most passionate about.  And it's the best way to connect with your audience.  They need to have an emotional connection with your brand.  Anyone can parade a bunch of pretty pictures in front of a consumer, but it's the brands that connect with them on a meaningful level that are successful.  It's those brands that the consumer goes out and evangelizes for.  We're here to help you tell those stories and make your audience want to go out and tell their friends about what who you are and what you just shared with them.

Every story, and every project needs to be told in its own way.  There's not one approach for all videos.  So before we start a project, we examine what needs to be done to tell the story.

We do that in a few key ways...  First, we are your partner.  And that's not just something we say.  If you call at 5p on a Friday you get someone on the phone who can execute what you need done.  We function like a department within your company, we just happen to sit in a different building.  Secondly, we offer what you need.  Whether all you have is an idea and you need us to flush it out for you or you have handled the pre-production and you need someone to execute.  And third, we scale for your needs.  When you hire us you're not paying for a creative director or copywriter to work on other client's projects.  Our network of leaders in the creative field makes sure we can tailor the team working on your project to what it needs.  Whether that's one person doing motion graphics or 20 people filming all around the country.

WE ARE CONTENT CREATORS


WE ARE CONTENT CREATORS


CONTENT CREATORS

Before it was a buzz word, we were leading the way as Content Creators. We’re not just executers, we’re a turn key solution to deliver a product from the spark of an idea to the final edit. Whether you have a creative team in house or need it all, we’re here to help.

SToryTELLERS

Creating engaging content is one thing, but you need to have a story. Lots of people can create great looking footage. But we are story first. Without a story, you don’t have much. We always think “story first”. Creating cohesive stories that also look incredible.

AUTHENTICITY 

When your audience encounters your brand, there’s one main thing they expect… authenticity. Without it you’ll quickly find your content falling on deaf ears. With viewers encountering so much messaging these days, only the authentic stories break through.
