Real Stories. Visual Poetry. Deep Inspiration.
Inspiring Creativity and Transformation through the power of films.
Movies have an unrivalled capacity to tell stories that touch the heart and inspire the soul. Films can act as powerful catalyst of transformation by replacing fear, powerlessness and anger by courage, confidence and joy.
We produce inspirational short documentaries that are visually poetic, intensely intimate and profoundly authentic. Our films are designed to share uplifting stories about real people to encourage the viewers to boldly engage in a creative transformation adventure of their own.
We also occasionally screen the films of other independent filmmakers who share our view of transformation and whose films can inspire the viewers to change their lives and contribute to positive social change.
Creative Lifestyles – The Portrait Series

In their different ways they are united by a common desire to feel free and alive, while contributing to the greater good.
