WHAT WE DO

We’re more than just a group of producers, directors and editors.  We’re truth-seekers. Empathetic curators of great stories and heartfelt moments.

One Tree Forest is a full service video production company with the sensibility of an agency. We were born out of the ever growing need to produce fast, nimble video content that is strong in concept and quality but also relevant and cost effective. In this world of content on demand, where speed of production is equally as important as beautiful storytelling, we believe that creative, production and post production must all be a part of the same cohesive process and not treated as separate entities. Our core team is trained to quickly produce, shoot and edit across production disciplines. We provide a collaborative process that ensures content is delivered on point and on time, even the same day if required! We are making possible that which was previously unattainable.

We connect.

 

We design our workflow around the story rather than forcing the story into our workflow. We prefer to walk onto set with a strong vision and outline as we believe it’s better to capture people as they are, not how we think they should be. Getting someone to smile is very different than telling someone to smile. It’s creating this deeper connection with the subjects of our stories that we feel define us and our work.

We execute.

 

We work as a small, tight-knit crew, able to recognize and adapt to the environment around us. Our favorite jobs allow us the flexibility to be spontaneous. In sacrificing total control, we’ve discovered a style that feels authentic yet beautiful. The alternative is often a heavy-handed production process that slows things down and ends up missing the best shots. This doesn’t mean that we don’t love cool tech and beautiful imagery as much as the next camera geek. We just think it should work for the story we are trying to tell rather than our demo reel.

We deliver.

 

We create content at a speed that traditional production houses can’t and won’t deliver. Taking a mobile first approach, we provide content that supports all digital platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat. From fully edited stories to satellite feeds, we provide all kinds of content to multiple agency partners and media contacts… all before leaving set. It’s pretty cool to watch Facebook likes start coming in while on the way home from the shoot.
