What if accidents weren't caused by chance? That there was some greater force out there trying to give you a hard time.
Suppose accidents weren't caused by chance - that someone or something out there was dedicated to achieving a universally-level playing field. Crazy, right? Think again - we're creating a world unlike any you’ve ever seen!
While our areas of study at The University of Michigan are diverse, our focus is uniform - to tell the most compelling stories possible, all fit for the big screen. We have experience across a variety of production modes from promotional corporate work to the commercial-style 30 spot and the narrative short film, and have worked with traditional 16mm film as well as the latest HD and digital cinema formats.
We are excited to now write, produce, and release to the world our short film Simon Says, but we're raising the bar for what has been produced by students and we need your help to fully realize our vision. Set design, costumes, props, support for special effects, equipment, food, gas, and more are just some of the expenses we will encounter as we make this film.
Although our process is highly collaborative, we are bringing our individual expertise across the various areas of narrative production. Get to know us through our work, social platform on Facebook, and blog, all accessible through www.filmicproductions.com, and find out much more below.
