TV, FILM, & DIGITAL
We're laying the groundwork to build a diverse slate of dramas, comedies, documentaries, and conversations in the television, film, & digital space...one courageous story at a time.
In a world that's increasingly disconnected, "in real life" experiences are more important than ever. We create innovative, insightful, and empowering live events that connect us to each other & our most courageous selves.
Not theater as usual, our stage productions focus on the power of courageous personal storytelling in a fresh, provocative, and intimate way that challenges what's possible on stage and beyond.
Content can only be as courageous as its source material. Our consulting division is an organic component of our deep commitment to create courageous stories & spaces. We help talent soar from the inside out.
