COMMITTED TO MAKING
A DIFFERENCE

We were founded on the principal of telling stories that make a difference.
 
Through our membership with 1% for the Planet, the Chamber of Commerce, and our close working relationships with international nonprofits, we truly are committed to being more than a production company.

FOUNDED BY FILMMAKER BEN HEMMINGS

LLB Law graduate-turned-filmmaker, Ben is driven to create inspiring films that educate, illuminate, and ultimately drive action.

He moved from the UK to Canada in 2017 and when he's not working on a project, he's listening to hiphop, exercising, out with his dog and daughter on a hike, making bone-dry jokes, and pretending that he could win Jeopardy.
