We believe in empowering people through storytelling, we refer to as “storysharing.” We know the best way to tell stories is through film and video.

We are passionate about sharing stories and we realize video and film through social media is the best vehicle to share your story around the globe.

“It was great. I think you’re enthusiastic, you’re very knowledgable, you get along great with the kids, you’re very patient and you have a lot of great information—and I think the kids really enjoyed it. They seemed like they were very focused and engaged through the whole process—all four days. And they were five-hour days, so that’s saying a lot.” Jeff Brandmeyer Instructor, Carlsbad High School Film Academy
