We founded Adventure Pictures in San Francisco more than two decades ago, inspired by our filmmaking adventures around the globe covering a wide range of subjects, from NASA science experiments in the Arctic to wildlife conservation in Africa. We bring that same enthusiasm to each of our storytelling projects, whether it's a documentary film for a museum, a software product demo for a startup, or a communications piece about new initiative. Our creative contributions range from concept development and scripting to field production and editing.
Here are a few examples from recent productions:
Adventure Pictures was invited to join a group of leading engineers, landscape architects, and ecologists working together as part of the Field Operations team for the landmark climate change initiative Resilient by Design/Bay Area Challenge. Over the course of 9 months, we helped develop branding concepts, shot landscape drone footage, and filmed interviews. The end result was “The South Bay Sponge”, our team’s film and award-winning proposal and an important first step in raising public awareness about the threat of sea level rise to communities around San Francisco Bay.
When a team of seasoned business consultants launched startup Databook, they hired us to develop and film a series of eLearning modules for their customers. We organized the entire field production, from scouting locations and hiring crew, to directing and filming on-camera talent.
For the past five years the Adventure Pictures team has filmed in classrooms across the country for ASCD, a national organization for educators, as part of their ongoing video series about innovative teaching techniques and best practices.
Public Architecture commissioned Adventure Pictures to produce a short film to help promote an innovative concept in community health care. Our team filmed interviews with key stakeholders and edited ”Firehouse Clinics”, which tells the story of the nation's first health clinic co-located at a fire station.
For a new feature documentary, 1895 Films called on Director/Cinematographer Richard Neill to film the comeback story of a young musician injured in a bicycling accident, following him in concert and on the road as he biked from San Francisco to Los Angeles to help raise funds for spinal cord injury research.
