We Tell True Stories
We are not in advertising—we are skilled filmmakers who believe the only story worth telling is a true story.
Well-versed in nonfiction and fiction, we’ve helped major non-profits and leading businesses find the precise clarity that only a well-told story can deliver. We exist to articulate the human need for meaningful connection with other human beings via true stories. Stories of hope, loss, ingenuity and resilience otherwise ignored or overcomplicated.
To us, storytelling isn’t a buzzword—it’s our craft. If you need a creative partner to uncover and share your true story, we’re exactly who you’re looking for. Hard-won taste, sleepless nights, and countless hours honing our craft led us to one simple conclusion.
A true story is the only story worth telling.
We live in Sioux Falls, South Dakota—1,367 miles from New York City, 1,649 miles from Los Angeles. We don’t have offices in Paris or Sydney. Our office is a 100+ year-old building in the heart of the Upper Midwest.
We do love to travel. Across the state. Across the country. Across the globe. Anywhere our work takes us. But we also love coming home again. Some people think of it as flyover country. That’s their loss.

The results of their efforts led to a rich and bold vision for a vibrant, resilient community that celebrates Native American culture and is repositioning the American Indian community in Hennepin County as an engine for economic growth.
Needless to say, Passenger director Wes Eisenhauer had his work cut out for him when it came to accurately telling the story of the incredible work the people at NACDI are doing. Here’s what Wes had to say about finding and sharing NACDI’s unique voice (and risking a GoPro camera being crushed by a train in order to get a fantastic shot). more
