Our Story

BMM is a production company that will boldly raise up those who Hollywood has left behind, founded by Marzy Hart and Stacey Maltin. Upon meeting in an improv class, we knew our partnership would lead us to do great things. We share the same goals of telling the stories audiences need yet aren’t getting while keeping the integrity and authenticity of each project. Our partnership works so well because we support each other unconditionally and put our all into everything we take on.

We offer producing, writing, directing, acting, editing & casting services for narrative, corporate & branded content. If you’re interested in investing in any of our projects and supporting diverse voices, we’d be happy to chat!
