Nice to meet you

We’re a bunch of creative misfits who strive to make content that’s relevant, diverse and true.

We are a production company based in Bern, Switzerland. We commit fully and wholly to each project we tackle always aiming to make films that help our customers reach their audiences with entertaining stories.

Off-the-shelf solutions often don’t cut it and therefore we offer a production workflow that is customisable, scaleable and sustainable. Collaboration with international talent and companies is key to creating content that matters.

As our Man for tech and numbers, Manuel is a steady source of order and structure in this creative bunch. Tech-savvy and always aware of the latest advances in gear and apps, he navigates the company and our clients through the jungle of innovation our modern times present. His own creative capability shines every time he is in charge of the camera work on our film sets. The balance of precision, diligence and aesthetic abilities that are required of him as art director, also translate perfectly to the business and managing aspects of running a production company and its projects.
