Finding good stories isn’t hard. The world is filled with them. What’s hard is telling those stories with integrity. With heart. And grit. Not settling for the cheap laugh or the easy tear. But keeping faith with the everyday hero who rises to the occasion, and not looking away when he or she fails to meet the mark. It’s a matter of putting your eye to the lens and not flinching at what you see. Just exhale slowly and between heartbeats gently squeeze the shutter.
That’s what we do at Film 47. Under the leadership of acclaimed filmmaker Peter Berg, we’re dedicated to developing and producing a diverse slate of powerful scripted entertainment. We believe in telling stories straight and true; in accurately portraying people and their situations in a way that moves and sometimes inspires audiences while exploring the world we live in today.
