We want you to make your movie! We are filmmakers and instructors who can show you how to make a short film, documentary or music video.
We will show you the best cameras to use for your project, what other equipment you will need, what great sound is, how to write, edit, and design the soundtrack!
Got a story to share? Let us help you do it!
We will be announcing dates very soon! They will be reasonably priced, about 2 hours long and with generous Q&A as well as film gear to examine, including cameras, microphones, lights and some detailed case studies.
We can consult in person or via internet about your project and help you prepare it for cinema, TV, internet, a live presentation, special screening or educational purpose.
If you have already shot a movie or video, we can evaluate your footage clips and audio quality to help you make it the best it can be! Also, even if you are simply interested in starting a video business, we can help with that, too.
We can visit your place of work for some advanced film and video discussions, whether it be 'film-making' tools and techniques, or video production & editing for promotional or educational purposes.
This is a unique team-building exercise where employees and management take on different roles to make a mock documentary like The Office. It is a fun, challenging and creative way to work together to solve problems and achieve great results!

This is from a film workshop taught by Buck on how to get the best lighting and sound for an interview.
