We’re a two-time Emmy Award winning filmmaking team based in San Francisco, California. 

We both started our careers as photojournalists. Erin worked at the Citizen-Times in Asheville North Carolina where she was recognized as a Magenta Flash Forward Emerging Photographer and her work was featured in places like The New Yorker and Photo District News. Tim interned at National Geographic and MediaStorm before setting out on a two-year bicycle trip across the country with his brother, Noah, filming hidden pockets of the American South for their film America Recycled.  

In 2015 we started working together at the San Francisco Chronicle, where we co-produced a weekly video column called The Regulars and co-directed the Chronicle's first feature-length documentary film, Last Men Standing, about long-term HIV/AIDS survivors. The film premiered at the historic Castro Theatre in San Francisco and has toured festivals worldwide. 

Our work was a finalist for a National Magazine Award and we’ve been recognized by Pictures of the Year International.

In addition to our editorial work, we bring documentary sensibilities and cinematic storytelling to our commercial and branded clients.
