Congressional Record presentation honoring Mr. Steve Tamayo

Congratulations Steven Tamayo! #AlmostFairytales had the pleasure of interviewing him for our documentary last summer. Teaching culture through play is a key focus of Steven Tamayo’s life’s work. While filming we explored this concept. Tamayo is a #Lakota artist and educator living outside Omaha. His work has been shown internationally and he taught at #StandingRock during the #NoDAPL movement. He currently has an exhibit at the #Smithsonian featuring #handgames from a variety of Native American cultures. This exhibit has been displayed for five years and it just got recontracted for another 15.

These Teens Started Podcasting As A Hobby, Then It Turned Into Serious Journalism

A few years ago Our co-owner, #JessicaRenslow, volunteered to teach a podcasting class at a high school in Gary, Indiana. Three of the original students decided to continue on and have a club devoted to the craft of digital storytelling. They've been harnessing their narrative ever since. They won the The New York Times Student Podcast contest (out of 675 entries) and were just interviewed about environmental equity on NPR All Things Considered. You can listen to Audie and them here:

The Indiana Black Barbershop Health Initiative is a statewide Initiative out of the Indiana Commission on the Social Status of Black Makes. Almost Fairytales has helped document this initiative in Lake County for the past 3 years. A number of community organizations, small businesses and individuals partner to take medical volunteers into barbershops throughout Lake County and perform free health screening on everyone in the barbershop.

We could not be prouder of our intern Danielle Sipp. Yesterday was #GreatLakesDay in DC. Danielle was there to advocate for two subjects near and dear to our hearts; clean water access and active tourism for all. We have 2 documentaries coming out this year covering each of these issues. Both of which she has contributed to. On this International Women’s Day we want to highlight Danielle for her efforts.We love this year's theme, #BalanceForBetter. We hope someday we have a more equitable world for young leaders like her. We 💕mentoring the next generation of filmmakers. Interesting fact, according to the MPAA 2017, women compose 50% of major motion picture film goers in the US. Of the top 100 grossing films of 2017 only 8% were directed by women and #KathrynBigalow is still the only woman to ever win an Oscar for Best Director. Almost Fairytales is actively working to correct that inequity this generation and for our up and coming directors of tomorrow.

In honor of "Throw Back Thursday" we posted this album about our world premiere of “Radio Renaissance” at the 2017 Praxis Film Festival. Today marks the day we got our acceptance notification. We road tripped to historic Goldsboro NC and had an epic long weekend. If you ever get a chance to check out this little gem, it’s worth the trip! Two years later we’re still smiling about their hospitality. Looking forward to festival season. We have 3 films in post production this year. 2019 should be productive 🎥

Our Story

Our co-owners, Lindsey Myers and Jessica Renslow met while working at a post-production studio in Burbank, California in 2007. After a year of collaborating on many projects together, they decided to combine their production and post-production skill sets and formed Almost Fairytales. We are an independent production/ post-production company based in Studio City, California. We can do anything from create graphics in Flash to write a comprehensive curriculum. A key factor for the Almost Fairytales crew has been maintaining our motto, "We Make Projects into Productions!" Our corps of industry professionals has a unique combination of expertise. Our services vary, but fall into four main categories: preproduction, production, post-production and instructional design.
