Above all, filmmakers are storytellers. We live in a world that changes at light speed, and the world needs dynamic, creative individuals to chronicle the adventures. The next time you watch a movie, read all the credits. You’ll see that film is a collaboration of many artists and other creative individuals. At The Factory, your experience goes far beyond digital filmmaking; you have the opportunity to work alongside special make-up effects artists to bring your characters and films to life.

You are a storyteller. You have a passionate message to tell. You are the one who brings our greatest fears, our greatest hopes, and our greatest loves to reality. This is your life. This is your dream. OWN IT.
