we make our own films

Our films have shown on PBS, the New York Times and in all nooks and crannies of the internet. Getting to make our own work is our passion, and it helps us tell your stories better. 

Filmed over five years and with unprecedented access, The Trees documents the creation of the World Trade Center Memorial Plaza in New York City. The film examines our fundamental need for healing and rebirth after tragedy, and the fundamental role that nature plays in our journey toward solace.

The Trees premiered on PBS on the 15th Anniversary of 9/11.

Slumming It: Myth and Culture on the Bowery traces the rich, 200-year history of New York City's Bowery, examining the myriad ways in which the street and its denizens were instrumental in New York's evolution as an archetypal modern-day metropolis. Featuring interviews with historians and present-day residents, as well as artfully interwoven archival images and motion pictures, the documentary juxtaposes today's Bowery with the characters, locations, and stories that, more than a century ago, formed the extraordinary fabric of this influential--and infamous--boulevard.

Slumming It premiered on PBS in 2003.
