A full-service, National Addy and Emmy award-wining, boutique production company with a studio in the creative heart of St. Louis.
Now in our 12th year, Once Films spreads the stories of good people doing good things. We’ve spent those years creating almost 900 video projects for our clients, and our company continues to grow and invest in our St. Louis community.
In the summer of 2019, Once moved into its current studio, having spent 14 months breathing new life into a 106-year-old, history-rich building. As part of our efforts to be kind to our environment, we installed a solar array to allow all building functions to operate from 100% renewable energy. Once and its new space have recently been featured in Entrepreneur’s Quarterly and the St. Louis Business Journal (including the Building 2020 Award) as a reference for modern creative spaces and contributing to the revitalization efforts within the city.
As a creative enterprise and video production company, Once Films has been honored with some of the industry’s highest awards: 5 National ADDY Awards from the AAF (and 58 total Addy Awards), 4 Communication Arts Awards of Excellence and magazine features, 24 Mid-America Emmy Awards, and a Clio Award. And what may be our proudest achievement: we’ve helped non-profit organizations raise hundreds of millions of dollars in charitable contributions as part of video fundraising projects.
Our work makes a positive impact on countless lives, strengthens the community we live and work in, and pushes our craft forward in a meaningful way.
We have been in the industry since 2010.
