Documentary Film Production Experts

Stories for Impact.

Documentaries are 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?

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.”

Film and Video.

We work with clients to identify amazing stories. Our discovery process includes pre-production interviews, scripting and storyboarding to identify the right elements for a winning documentary. The cinematic finished product is designed to engage audiences and attract attention to important causes.

Specialized Documentary Film Capabilities.

Part story-telling, part investigative journalism, documentaries always lead to unexpected territory. At StoryTrack, we minimize surprises by doing the legwork upfront. Through intensive research, fact-checking, pre-interviews and more, we chart the course of your film, giving it a solid narrative framework before production ever begins.

Editorial and Copywriting. 

Narrative structure and coherence are essential elements of award-winning documentaries. Our veteran scriptwriters weave the classical elements of storytelling to create must-see content. Our editorial staff approaches every shoot, every location, every on-camera subject with an eye toward masterful storytelling. And our editors deliver the cinematic touch that separates your film from the also-rans.

Digital Distribution.

At StoryTrack, we support your distribution strategy by converting film assets into complementary communications. A full-length film can be broken into episodes for serial distribution. Tightly-crafted segments can be edited for social and mobile distribution. We also develop film art, posters and identity graphics for distribution across platforms.
