About us

We’re a group of creative people who wear many different hats – as teachers, linguists, technologists, anthropologists, actors, writers, journalists. But what brings it all together is storytelling and critical thinking. (Or critical thinking through storytelling.)

Have a look around to see what we’re up to…


We are a small team of independent creators with a wide range of talents and expertise. Each project we work on is unique, and we work together to make our projects come to life through music, audio production, film, and storytelling. We love a challenge – anything from fantasy to fact-based documentaries.
