Stay strong. Stay well. Stay sane. We are all in this together.
Our passions in life: filmmaking and history. Whether we're working on a documentary about the Emancipation Proclamation, Michigan's State Capitol (which is amazing if you haven't been), an exhibit film for a museum, or acquiring oral histories, we absolutely excel in the historical film/video genre. We love all kinds of history, too: American, company's, personal history/experience, people, cars, architecture, stories!
History and filmmaking. Yup, that's us!

Sometimes a story just speaks for itself. We have had the privilege of recording some amazing stories with people from all walks of life over the years: famous historians, urban farmers, racing legends, survivors, and veterans of World War II. You can read a book to learn about facts and figures with precise detail. You can watch an oral history to better understand what it was like for a human being to experience. They are stories in their most powerful and raw form.
