Consider us your very own team of story makers. For real, our favorite pastime is finding good stories. We combine our experience and love for visual storytelling to ensure we create a film that does the story justice while making y’all (the brand) look good.
Creative & Story Development
We know how to discover and develop captivating stories. They could come from within your organization or from communities and characters we have access to. We also love exploring the best format and medium for a story and how to tell it in a way that organically aligns with your brand. Just point us in the right direction, and we'll create the roadmap.
Now the adventure begins! We figure out the production puzzle to produce the most efficient film shoot. We seamlessly manage all the moving parts of the production; script, cast, crew, locations, plus all the boring but important stuff—we got it sorted. We also believe the more prepared we are, the more possibilities we can explore when rolling.
Need help with a distribution strategy? Relax—we've got you! We can help create a plan to ensure the folks you want to reach watch and connect with what we just made. From the get-go, we develop our films knowing all the places they will air so that our storytelling follows the platform's best practices.
we do it
One source is never enough. At Summer Break Studios, we know good stories require attention to detail and insatiable curiosity because the ultimate truth is always more interesting than fiction. For every project, we ask ourselves; what story are we really trying to tell? To who? And why does it matter?
When crafting ideas, we like to see what happens if we throw all the rules out the window and just do some weird stuff instead—kinda like you would as a kid with the whole summer day ahead of you. We know our best ideas come when we take a beat, chill, and embrace play.
Proximity to our character’s world and perspective is essential when entrusted with telling their story. That’s why we select each crew member on each project with intention. We want everyone involved in a film to approach the subject and characters with care and empathy. The stories we tell matter, but who is telling them matters more.
