Our Story

After coincidentally being paired-up for a school project and ending up in the principal’s office, we quickly became friends and inevitably: a creative team. During our study, we both pursued our cinematic interest by making a detour to study film at the School of Visual Arts in New York.

Would you like a side with that?

Side-projects are very important to us. They release us of frustration, imagination & lingering what-ifs. That’s why you’ll find our portfolio to always contain plenty of sides to consume.
