Design. Shoot. Edit. Deliver.

We combine the creative skills of an agency with the technical expertise of a production house.
An intelligent & comprehensive production experience
We manage the entire production process, which simplifies communication and keeps the vision consistent. Every project is a bit different, but in general our process looks something like this:
This is where it all starts. We work with you to establish project goals, design cool concepts, write scripts, and storyboard projects shot for shot. We’re known for taking complicated pieces of information and explaining them in a concise and engaging way.
This is where the planning happens. We audition and hire actors, scout and book locations, build props, and finalize logistics. Putting the necessary time into this phase keeps us organized when we get on set.
This is where the cameras come out. Be it shooting in a secret lab in Waterloo or off a cliff in the Rockies, our crew is well equipped to handle whatever our shoot days may throw our way. We own and maintain a long list of cameras, lenses, lights, tripods, sound equipment as well as a fully equipped grip and lighting trailer.
This is where it all comes together. We edit, design motion graphics, mix audio, and colour-grade footage using state of the art software and hardware. We send you lots of iterative drafts to make sure you like how everything is coming along.
This where your eyes explode! Once you’ve approved a final draft, we optimize the video for its end destination (web, broadcast, in-store, etc,) send over the files, and do a little happy dance.
A tight-knit team of skilled & passionate people
Strategy, cinematography, editing, writing, animation, woodworking – you name it.

Our agile, multidisciplinary team does it all and does it well. Our strategic design sets us apart and makes us a true partner in every project we work on. Our videos have driven success for clients ranging from large, multinational brands to beloved local microbreweries – that means millions of views, high retention rates, and measurable success.

We’re headquartered in an 1850’s loft in Waterloo Ontario, but you’re just as likely to find us on the road, cameras in tow, all over the world.
