We are filmmakers based in Los Angeles, we produce and direct films for international markets. All of our team members have immigrated from different countries. We do understand exactly how difficult it is to break in to the industry and gain your own voice!

We have decided that we would like to help our fellow filmmakers from around the world by bringing the Hollywood to them!

We will be releasing content that is either inspiring or filled with very practical knowledge or both. We will share with you knowledge that we and our guests have for producing, financing and distributing independent films and everything that is related to it.

We will also be interviewing stars!

Stay tuned and send us your questions! We would like to hear from you and ask YOUR questions from our guests!

We are committed to making the World a better place through the power of Film!
