Our vision and mission

Our vision is to keep transforming in this ever changing world. We have a longstanding experience in delivering works of art and design in various of forms and genres; in animation, film, television, new media, video art, installation, theatre and documentary. 

Our source of inspiration is as Keats coined it: “Beauty is truth, truth beauty, — that is all you need to know.” In other words, we enjoy investigating the relationship of art and life and believe that art can best depict human life and the human condition. Our mediums are music and documentary film. We are storytellers and have learnt that you never know what strikes a chord. 

We enjoy creative collaboration and see ourselves producing and co-producing documentary films that create impact in our communities and societies far into the future, and living happily ever after.
