Writing the story

From your submissions, we'll select a story to bring to life. From the story, we'll break down production needs.

Dial in pre-production

From location scouting to casting and everything in between, you'll be along with us for the ride.

Gear selection

Who doesn't love gear talk? More importantly, we'll talk about the why's and when's of our kit.


For much of the production days, we'll be live streaming so you can see the highs and lows of #SetLife.


We'll work with editors, musicians, and professional colorists to bring the final stage of the story to life.
