Vibrant Films is an up and coming production company in the Bay Are of California. We believe that film-making is a powerful tool that can bring you to a place where the lives of others become one with our own.
In the past we have worked on web commercials and short documentaries but now we are in graduate school and are honing our skills in the narrative/storytelling realm. Matt Barkin is our writer/director who is studying directing at the Academy of Art University. His last short titled, "Thick as Thieves" is premiering on PBS in the spring. He is a published writer, and has had his work featured in local Bay Area news outlets and in the NY Times.
Adam Ducharme is the director of photography. He has worked for NBC, the NBA, Discovery, and DGA productions as a cinematographer.
Our website is www.vibrantfilms.com where you can find out more about what we have been working on.
