Our work has been seen on leading global news and thematic channels (CNN International, CNBC, Investigation Discovery, National Geographic, PBS) and we've produced branded content for leading clients in industries ranging from hospitality, wine and design to manufacturing and technology. We provide fixing and field production services throughout Italy, post-production editing, sound design and mixing, and scriptwriting. As a small shop, we stick to essentials, bringing together the right talent and resources on a per-project basis, whether a long-form doc or tightly scripted promo showcasing a client's products, services and people. We don’t pad budgets with a lot of hidden costs so they're client-friendly. Our enthusiasm keeps us creatively focused so we can deliver your message on deadline, on budget. That’s what we've built our reputation on.

SpecialityBased in downtown Chicago and Tuscany, we specialize in non-fiction programming for television and branded content for a growing list of clients, with a keen focus on providing fixing and field production services throughout Italy. We’ve produced promotional and corporate videos for companies and small businesses from a wide range of industries--from hospitality, wine and interior design to public relations, manufacturing, technology.

Working in another country can pose many bureaucratic--and linguistic--challenges. As experienced fixers, we have the know-how to navigate Italy's labyrinthine bureaucracy and negotiate production costs that won’t break the budget. We deal strictly in USD, which has proven to be a great advantage for our American clients. We will travel anywhere in Italy and Europe, are fluent in English and Italian with some proficiency in Spanish and French.
