WHO WE ARE

                  

Reelxplorers is a small film production team that works with non-profits, organizations and businesses to extend their reach and gain better exposure to the issues they stand for. 

Through our ability to visualize a narrative and produce it on screen in a compelling way, we can help you build awareness for your cause. Recently, we helped non-profits in Denver raise over $220,000 in donations.

Powerful stories create trust. They are one of the most influential tools in human connection. A well told story allows your audience to connect on a deeper and more caring level. Our videos stir emotion, they excite the senses and they promote action.

We handle everything from script to screen and everything in-between. 

We shoot safely and according to the new Covid-19 rules.

 THROUGH VIDEO

We donate 2.5% of the profit from every video we make to victims of abuse.

Working Together

Meet The Team

While traveling through Asia and across Africa we met people who made us look at the world in a different way. They showed us how to see with our eyes and our ears. Sometimes they told us stories that  broke our hearts and ones that made us feel like we could fly with super human possibility but regardless of the continent each person had one thing in common... they always inspired us.

These people are the reason we started reelxplorers, we wanted to tell their stories, we wanted to give a voice to the unheard.
