Life can be stranger than fiction, but that doesn’t mean that we only do documentaries. Sometimes a story is better told as a work of fiction. Maybe we are spoiled. Or a naive bunch of dreamers, but we believe that everything is possible if we just give it our best…

Take a look our slate and do not hesitate to contact us if you are interested in one of our projects.
