Align more of your work to your values

Documentary filmmakers like you have the talent and the passion to bring purposeful stories to life in a way that inspires action, yet you often have to resort to working on commercial productions to fund your labors of love. In founding Micro-Documentaries, we sought out ways we could support the craft of documentary filmmaking while offering creatively challenging work that was mission-driven. We learned that to do this, we needed to offer opportunities that enabled you to:
  • master your craft by continuously fine-tuning the art of authentic storytelling through short films.
  • work with extreme autonomy that creates new possibilities for enriching your personal and professional life, vs. draining it.
  • focus your energy purposefully to support social and environmental missions that create a better world for all of us.
Micro-Documentaries is built on a foundation of energetic, inspired, creative people who are passionate about helping organizations advance their missions through short film. Our team is committed to continuously innovating in order to make micro-documentaries increasingly authentic, affordable and actionable for purposeful businesses and nonprofit organizations.

Extreme autonomy in action

To keep ourselves charged and focused for our clients, our team functions a little differently than most short film production companies out there—or any company for that matter.
We have no office, no real office hours, a European-style holiday package and possibilities of sabbatical straight away. This, coupled with doing purposeful work, enables us to attract bright, creative, independent thinkers who are individually driven to perform well.
The only thing that team members are accountable for are their own deliverables. Whether they go hiking in the middle of the day, attend their child’s performance, or take off on a meditation retreat, this freedom enriches their lives in a way that directly translates into customer satisfaction and company growth.
