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 promote empathy and are one of the most influential tools for a cause. A well told story allows your audience

to see, understand and connect on a deeper level, inspiring them to act.

How It All Started

Working Together

While traveling through out Africa and South East Asia, we met people who made us look at the world in a different way. They showed us how to see with more compassion and listen with more understanding. We started reelxplorers as a platform to create films for important causes worldwide. We want to bring a voice to those in the world that have little opportunity but a lot of heart.
