Documentary Film Production Experts
Stories for impact.
StoryTrack Studios is a full-service TV, Film, and digital production company based in St. Louis, MO. From Emmy award winning documentaries and live shows to unscripted content delivered across platforms, our dedicated team has over 20 years of experience creating global content
Unscripted and documentary content offers a window into the hidden realities all around us. They tell the untold story, pull back the curtain on history, give behind-the-scenes access to people and places that tantalize the imagination. But there’s something about documentary video production that most people don’t understand. While they’re carved from the stone of raw, unvarnished truth, documentaries are among the most structured, and choreographed genres in existence. To take the audience on an unforgettable journey, you have to be a master storyteller.
At StoryTrack, our team of professional filmmakers has deep expertise in documentary film production. From plot to conflict to character arcs, we understand the science of storytelling — and we use it to create impact and keep audiences glued to their seats. But we’re not just your average storytellers. We are technicians with the production expertise to craft docu-series, corporate documentaries, cause documentaries and more — all in stunningly cinematic fashion. Want to keep your target audience perched on the edge of their seats?
Whether scripted, documentary, or branded—cinematic storytelling is at the core of everything we do.
Why is documentary film expertise important?
At StoryTrack, our Emmy-winning team gets it. We’ve filmed in Hurricane-ravaged Haiti and produced multiple PBS documentaries. From scripting to scouting, from interviewing to soundscaping to computer animation, we have the experience to bring a vision to life. Driven by passion and a devotion to the craft, we thrive on partnering with like-minded professionals. If you have a cause, organization or idea you truly believe in, we’re ready to go the distance to share your vision with the world.
Thanks to the rise of streaming services including Netflix, Amazon and Hulu, there’s never been a more opportune time for documentary filmmakers. According to the Documentary Film Association, 48% of documentary professionals believe there’s more opportunity now than just two years ago. So what’s changed? What’s the ultimate prize for the genre’s visionaries? Impact. 58% of producers and directors in the industry describe themselves as “social issue advocate filmmakers.”
