We build our crews around the projects, not the other way round. The makeup of the team is crucial. It’s the difference between good and great. At A Family Story Films, we understand that a deeply personal passion piece needs a different set of skills from, say, a vast-scale Multicam stunt. And so A Family Story Films is home to a range of talents, from directors of photography and sound-people to graphic designers and editors, each with many years experience in their specialist fields. It means we cherry-pick our teams specifically for each project, and purely based on the needs of the film.
