A collection of short docs depicting the life-changing journeys of bankers, teachers, entrepreneurs -people like you and me- who leave the steady comfort of their homes to embark on jaw-dropping mountain bike adventures around the world.

Acclaimed artist Sarah Anne Johnson is on an 8-month journey to create Toronto’s largest photographic mural ever, measuring a block-long and two stories high. For a photographer who -though incredibly accomplished- has never made a piece larger than 5’ x 7’, this will prove to be a career-defining challenge.

The Power of Nonfiction
Purpose-driven brands are sitting on a wealth of story potential: genuine, untapped tales emanating from the unmistakable energy that only living, breathing characters can convey. In a world of savvy audiences who demand genuine communication, why not take advantage of your most precious asset: authenticity.
The word "story" has become somewhat of a catch-phrase the past few years. But story is not just a magic label that you can place on any idea. It's a specific narrative strategy, a conscious arrangement of information in order to generate empathy and spark emotional engagement. When done right, it inspires, motivates and yes, entertains.
Authenticity & Certainty
We are guided by two single ideals: authenticity of content and certainty of outcome. We anchor our filmmaking process around one goal: unearthing the right set of characters and circumstances as a way of tapping into a human experience that enhances a specific brand’s values.
A filmmaker's heart,
A marketer's mind
Our team brings to the table a unique combination: years of experience in both the documentary filmmaking and branding worlds. We know how to craft great nonfiction stories. But we also understand bottom-line goals. Through a methodology that reverses the storytelling process and embraces the client as an integral part of it, the stories we produce help brands communicate their core values while building a strong emotional bond with their audience.
We're a boutique studio - a new initiative of The Story Studio - that believes in the unique power of non-fiction storytelling. We specialize in highly sophisticated, short form, branded documentary content. We work both as creative studio and production company, directly with clients or in partnership with other creative agencies.Book a free brainstorming session
