Our producer, Raymond Oelrich, is often looking at ways to convey meaning on every project, not just entertain. "I like to think we offer "docu-tainment" in our films, shows and documentaries, "that is my goal". Whether we are producing a show on digital or movie film stock, in color or black and white, each scene and every line of dialogue is important in some way to tell the stories we are creating. A camera and film stock is simply a tool to help tell the story in the best way we can do so. "Our goal is to create something unique in every film or show we make".
Some shows, films or docs will be done internally; "in-house" through our own production company. Others will be a new company set up with partners, investors and others, sharing in the revenue; profit or loss, that comes from that production. Handcraft Film will be a partner in each of those projects.
"Every project must have meaning; a social value or redemption in the story it tells. We do not produce violent films, horror or any other genre that features violence, racism or abuse to people or animals, UNLESS the story-line is to shine a light on those inequities to find a way to help solve them, but NOT for entertainment value like many shows and films do". according to Raymond.
In addition to our feature film business we also have a website for documentaries, commercials, and photography where we produce other projects and sell camera equipment. Check out our site below.
We love our customers, sponsors, crew, and partners, so feel free to contact us by phone or email. We will reply within 24 hours to all messages and phone calls.
