ABOUT STUDIO KATE

MISSION

We get up every day to tell meaningful, breathtakingly beautiful stories that give voice to people and issues that need to be heard and jolt the world into understanding, empathy and action.

TOOLS

Our favorite tools for jolting include:

  • the short, documentary-style video
  • the public service announcement (PSA) or commercial
  • the animated/illustrated video

PEOPLE 

We tell stories with and about people and organizations who are ridiculously optimistic, relentlessly innovative, wisely strategic, annoyingly restless, intelligently opinionated, and refreshingly honest with themselves and others.

STORY

We’re interested in telling stories about people and organizations doing important work in communities around the world. We’ve loved telling these kinds of stories, and we want to tell more.

  • Changing culture to educate girls in the Maasai Mara
  • Bringing health care to the people of Turkana, Kenya
  • Providing access to capital to create jobs in rural Oregon
  • Building a wind farm to fund essential social services
  • Including communities of color at the policy table
  • Explaining new ways to use biofuels to create clean energy

JOLT

We produce films to be seen and heard. Our most successful clients share our passion for strategic distribution via social media, digital marketing, press and other strategies that inform, spark conversation, introduce new ideas, change minds, and inspire direct action.
