Rachelle & James

Producing promotional stories for business, non-profit, and social enterprise clients worldwide

With the latest and greatest in tools and technology, and a goal to make every subject shine through their own unique light, our films meet at the intersection of inspiration and promotion. We're storytellers for social impact and have a simple goal: motivate viewers to support our clients' work through inspiring video stories.

We're Rachelle and James. We've produced compelling video material from the front lines of development in more than 20 countries for organizations large and small. Our work environments have ranged from conflict zones in Gaza to classrooms in Laos, and everything in between. While our roving production studio fits into a few small backpacks, the media we produce for our clients enhances visibility, fundraising, and awareness efforts in big ways.

The content we've produced has been seen on: MSNBC, The Katie Couric Show, Bloomberg TV, Current TV, and has been shown to thousands at large events like the Clinton Global Initiative and the International Cricket Council’s World Cup. Our clients have been able to better showcase work and impact, and gain crucial media attention from outlets like: 60 Minutes, Charlie Rose, and Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn’s Half the Sky docu-series.
