Hand Crank Films is named after the Bell & Howell 70 hand crank film camera that was used to shoot our initial :30 television spots in the summer of 2005.
Since that first summer, we’ve grown to produce one feature film, over 100 commercials, 40 corporate videos, and a documentary which was recently broadcast nationwide in HD on PBS. Along the way, we’ve progressed in production mediums from 16mm, to HD, to 4K.
Although our work has taken off nationally and internationally, our budgets have remained decidedly affordable. We work with producers and agencies around the country who find that getting top-notch filming, editing, and visual effects work for a fraction of the price is easy.
Our focus? Telling stories. Your story. And giving our clients the absolute best-looking film work for their money.
We have been in the industry since 2005.
