we create intimate stories, interactive collaborative and self-exploring situations by adding
web-documentaries and game-approaches to the classic linear film.  

And we do it for and with the audience – we want our stories to be moving and engaging. So
we have a close look to the way and where the audience prefers our story to be received.  
We continue to extend our knowledge and network at workshops like Insight Out Digital
