“Beautiful short story and great art!"

I want to give him a hug.


“Thats awesome!"

Made me cry... Art has an effect on the dopamine levels, builds self esteem! Better than drugs for sure.


“This was so beautiful."

Thank God for art, precious daughters and special dads ❤️


“Yeah, brought tears to my eyes.”

Actually I want to run art workshops for wellbeing like this. It's all about being immersed in the process and feeling connected to your inner self and to each other in the group creating side by side, each expressing their own individual identity.


“beautiful work”

A note from the founder

I’ve spent over a decade as a video marketing expert in Vancouver for big brands and have come to realize something very important.

In this day of marketing automation and trend chasing, real artful storytelling is the most effective way to reach hearts and minds.

We are helping companies connect to their audience in a unique way – through impactful videos.

If you’re someone that appreciates the value in beautiful films, then we should collaborate.
