We are visual storytellers.
Your story – distilled.
PHILOSOPHY

Between tweeting, texting, liking, poking, pinging, pinning and DVRing, we often wonder: where is your story?

Our hope is to step down from the cloud; to see the forest from the trees.

At distill studio you'll find craftspeople who are visual storytellers. In that sense, we are not an agency or a boutique or a production company. We believe in the challenge of a digital and virtual world, but adhere to artisanal principles when it comes to delivering your story. Here, artists and artisans of the modern era share a single passion: advancing your story through their crafts.

From a captionless photograph to a feature film, distill studio has the passion, experience and infrastructure to create everything in between and more.

Efficiently. Uniquely.

"Nothing great has been and nothing great can be achieved without passion."
-- G. W. F. Hegel
OUR STORY

Char met Faye one autumn night in Toronto. From opposite ends of the world, their stories couldn't have been more disparate. But, they embarked on a journey together, and built distill studio into an adventure.

Then, there's Ben and Rob.

faye
PARTNER, TO
fayequeGrowing up on French and Italian comics, he fell in love with stories, frame by frame. His dream was to make movies, and distill studio gave him back that fire. So he challenged others to dream as well, by following their craft.
char
ART DIRECTOR, TO
charWhen she was 11, her father gave her an instamatic camera. Since then, her dream has been to show the world through her unique lens – distill studio was just her chance. She sees moments in life that she wants to capture; often she's lucky enough to have a camera in her hand. She also likes to look at and create pretty things.
ben
DIRECTOR OPS, NYC
benBorn and raised in Kentucky, he discovered his love for filmmaking while playing a ravenous zombie in a friend's short film. At film school, he met this Canadian fellow with whom he shared a birthday. Today, he oversees the burgeoning "jokes about being single & airline food" division.
rob
DIRECTOR OPS, LA
robRaised in the mountains of North Eastern Pennsylvania he learned quickly to find out if he was about to eat deer. His favourite toy was lego because the possibilities are endless. To him, distill studio is a place created by people who like lego.
