About

Who We Are?

Who knew a handful of misfits could come together so well, and so quickly? Our story is one of different paths leading to the same place. A precocious teen photographer, Florida film school grad and technical genius; a globe-hopping filmmaker with loads major network credentials; a sports writer/traffic reporter/jack-of-all-trades, master of none; and a good ol’ son of the South salesman—joined to fill a media void in the beautiful northern hills and valleys of North Carolina.

We’re here to tell your story in a fresh way that ties your clients, customers and employees to you deeply—emotionally and intellectually.

Look at our work. Listen to our clients. Give us a call and let’s talk. We can’t wait to take a journey with you!
