Our Values

1. Transparency & Accountability – We believe the best way to work is through compassionate honesty and shared knowledge. Therefore, we select projects that we feel unanimously apply to communities from all walks of life and create a universal truth.

2. Dedication to High-Quality & Positive Experiences - We work as an ensemble of creative people who aim to maximize the impact of their work by combining experience, training, resources, and talent to a project. Therefore, we select projects that unanimously inspire an overwhelmingly positive response and approach the work with positive energy.

3. Continuous Innovation – We recognize each production as an opportunity for growth. Therefore, with each project, we heighten the standard to which we work with each other as well as the standard at which we present our work to other people.
