Intro bit

We are producers, directors, writers, shooters and editors. For 20 years we've been working with global brands like Toyota and American Express, creating videos for all imaginable internal and external uses. Could be for an audience of one in an executive corner office, or for the entire Interwebs. From our base in Los Angeles we've shot in every corner of the United States, and on location in Japan, the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, India, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Canada and Mexico.

How we work, and how we think

We work directly with decision-makers at large companies -- with marketing departments, training departments, corporate communications and HR, with managers, VPs and presidents -- to figure out what needs to be said, who's going to say it, and how. We often end up with a small group of people, perhaps just two, visualizing what the audience should experience when they view the message. We talk, we make decisions, and we pick up the cameras.

We get to know our clients very well, and we believe this results in clearer communication, freer creativity, a faster process, and a better finished product. And quite often, a smaller budget. It also leads to satisfying, long-term business relationships -- 20 years in some cases.

We love ideas, and we'll bring you lots of them. We're adventurous, open-minded, and spontaneous. We take great pride in our work, and we're good at what we do.

Per Larsson, Director of Photography

Per is a two-time Emmy Award winner for his work on the CBS prime time television show The Amazing Race. He has also shot Survivor, The Apprentice, Hell’s Kitchen, and Project Runway. A native of Sweden, Per enjoys a good Smörgåstårta and the occasional Fläskpannkaka, if the mood is right.

David Dobson, Editor/Graphic Artist

David has edited for the Home Entertainment divisions of Fox, Universal and Sony, and created motion graphics for the American Music Awards, the American Country Music Awards, Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve and the Golden Globes. A native of Hawaii, David has a sponge-like capacity for things like codecs and formats, and enjoys a nice Latvian vodka, long walks on the beach, and defeating evil, non-responsive software programs.

Aasulv Wolf Austad, FNF, Director of Photography

Since no one even in his native Norway can properly pronounce his first name, Aasulv goes by the nickname Wolf. Better, right? Wolf is an award-winning cinematographer who has shot over 30 documentaries, feature films and commercials. These days he’s known better as Mimi’s Dad than Wolf.
