WHY
CHOOSE US.

We know that there are a plethora of Production Houses out there that you can choose from, but do any of them truly cut the sht like we do?

As our partners know, we cut the sht real good. We can work with any budget, as long as objectives and expectations are managed from the get go.

Full transparency is what we give our partners. “You want X for the shoot day? Ok, that will be an extra Y amount. Too expensive, how about we do Z?”

Our partners come to us to execute, but also to work with our collaborators (both Directors and Photographers) that are on our books.** Fancy way to say they’re freelancers who we cut the sht with on a regular basis!

Simply put: we are problem solvers;
we’re not so good at Sudoku though…

HOW
WE WORK.

We take pride in bringing to life what has been carefully crafted in a super official briefing document or on a piece of paper or even a restaurant napkin.

We don’t mind as long as we cut the sht and discuss expectations, timelines & budget.

coffee time!

No better way to begin a project than with a hot cup o’ java! We’ll have some small chat, granted, but we’ll also cut the sht – discuss your brief, your objectives, timeline and of course the budget.

CUT THE SHT TIME!

This is what we do best, we absorb all previously shared information and find the best way forward.
This applies to all elements, we develop the brief, apply it to a timeline and deliver an estimate.
Managing our Partners expectations takes place at this point and is crucial for the final delivery. Some negotiating back and forth (as per ruddy usual) and then boom! We get the go ahead.

shooting time!

Once all the boring (but essential) paperwork is out of the way, time for the fun stuff! Lights. Camera and you guessed it… Action! We approach our shoot days as a fun day out with a clear set of rules and objectives. It’s very simply – what we love to do.
