ABOUT 1577

At 1577, we value the power of human connection through film, relying on it to entertain and inspire audiences across the country. Whether it is an intimate narrative, a complex documentary, or a branded film – we create focused, compelling stories that get noticed. Our core services include:

Creating your Story

Through our discovery process, we seek to identify the audience and target platforms which will best serve the story. From initial concept development, to organizing production days, we lay the foundation towards getting the most out of your production.

Capturing your Story

1577 has employed a scalable production model for both local and nationally driven projects. This gives its clients access to a highly talented and a trusted team, regardless of project size.

Sharing your Story

Whether your project is destined for social media and a company website, television, or a national distribution platform, we have a proven team to bring those hopes to reality.

"Disturb us, If our dreams come true it’s because we have dreamed too little."
