For part of a recruitment campaign, we conceived and produced a branded documentary about what it means to be a firefighter. More importantly, we challenged people to a higher level of sacrifice and service.

Expand Your Film Library to Include Foreign Films - Prelude Films

"With every new country I travel to, my perspective of this common life we live expands on many fronts. It opens my eyes to a world I didn’t know existed, enabling me to see the world through the eyes of someone other than myself. Ultimately, helping me love and care for people that I otherwise wouldn’t have known existed. Travel generates empathy."

Do you have a favorite foreign film?

MANIFESTO 03 - Push Standards

Best practices are best practices because they work. That said, there’s still a lot of gray area in the production world. We push established standards to find better ways to do work that serves your project’s goals and vision.

Why Endings Matter in Movies - Jarhead and the Goldfinch - Prelude Films

"We need endings that are sometimes difficult and rough. Endings that propose a question and thought. Endings that don’t give us pretty statements but rather force us to look at our own lives."

#videoproduction #filmproduction #productioncompany #filmfortworth #fortworth

By breaking down the endings of Jarhead and The Goldfinch, we can see why some endings work better than others and why they matter in movies.

MANIFESTO 02 - Good Work is Hard Work

Good work is more than pretty images and sound. (But to be clear, we’re still really into pretty content.) It has weight and substance and hits you in the gut. It is to create beyond mere images and sound and to communicate truth to someone right where they are.

In addition to video, an equally important part of content marketing for a product is photography. We produce and direct photo shoots and work with a curated list of photographers that deliver high-quality dynamic imagery.

This past fall we worked with Preuve and Grant Daniels Photography to produce a photo shoot for Calyan Wax Co. to generate new imagery for their website and paid-advertising.

Some photo work from last September when we were in Montana with Charge Adventures - Montana Hunting Guide, Rambo Bikes, and Buck Knives. Good times!

It's almost that time of year, we can already picture the cold calm mornings and changing leaves. The 539 Open Season Pro is the perfect knife to handle it all. With a micarta handle and S35VN steel blade, it's built tough.

MANIFESTO 01 / It's Not About Us

Film production involves a lot of things: family, heart, humility, insanity, genius, endurance, and solving problems. There’s no room for egos. We are here to serve the project's goals and vision.

Prelude is happy to introduce our newest teammate and good friend, Lizette Barrera. She has been one of our most trusted collaborators for years and is one of the most talented filmmakers I know.
