About Us

It all began on a Thursday.

We are a boutique production company, executing new ways of documentary storytelling within international markets. High-end non scripted features and series for streamers are our specialty. Yet we do not shy away from scripted content and love when it comes to hybrid forms.

Our passion for story development and a slim company structure allow us to bring complex themes to production. We team up with some of the best creative partners and international production companies to create authentic and dense audience experiences.
