Digital Eyes Film was founded in 2003, less than one year after I graduated from Columbia University. I did not study film and had no intention to produce media as a career path. I was a writer goddammit. But life had other plans. And through a series of misadventures, I discovered a joy for shooting and editing and began to cobble together short films. I had been telling stories in one form or another my entire life, so in ways it was a natural progression. Concurrently, documentary film was busting into the mainstream as a medium to be reckoned with. And so a combination of personal and external forces collided to set me on the potholed path of life as an independent producer.
Nearly 15 years on, with countless lessons along the way, our lean and talented team continues to take great pride in the work we do. We believe that well-produced media can change the world. Our goal is to entertain. To educate. To enlighten. Maybe sneak in a good laugh or two. At Digital Eyes Film, we produce media with heart. We discover and tell the untold stories. And we provide our partners, colleagues, and clients with the personal touch and breadth of experience that we bring to the table each day. We’re going to continue to push the boundaries of independent storytelling and distribution, and make manifest the change that media can create in people’s lives, communities, and society. Because goddammit, it’s what we do.
