Give us a call. We’d love to learn more about what you want to create. We’d love to share with you how we create a relaxed, well-executed creative process. We’re comfortable working as a part of a bigger machine, but we also thrive when we’re given the reins to lead projects.

Partner & Creative Producer
Karen Bruce is a partner and creative producer. She began her career in media and entertainment working in audience engagement in serious music with symphonies and solo classical artists. She later moved into corporate and industrial filmmaking as a production company administrator. She is especially adept at producing and conducting interviews with delicate subjects covering sensitive subject matter. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Humanities with a focus on Mass Communication, English, and Music.
Together John Paul and Karen bring years of experience operating in over 30 countries on 5 of the 6 inhabited continents with limited crew and technical support. They both bring a wealth of experience from the hospitality industry which they use to more deeply engage with their clients and subjects, creating a welcoming environment for all.
Every project is different, and every crew is assembled with that in mind. We make it a point to engage crew members who bring a well-rounded worldview to set. We believe that every crewmember brings not only their skillset but their life-experience. We seek to leverage that life-experience by creating an environment where listening and curiosity build better, more authentic creative output.
