About US

Seize the means

We tell movement stories - the stories of our friends, clients, and collaborators, and any others who are involved in creating a more just and sustainable society.  

We exist to make cinema-quality production services available to values-aligned organizations at the forefront of social change.

We believe in the potential of filmmaking to generate empathy and action across social, cultural, and economic barriers. We work with you - whether you’re a nonprofit organization, an activist group, a labour union, or a political movement - to craft stories that will resonate.

Eric Sanderson
Eric Sanderson is a maker of documentary films and videos based in Vancouver, BC. He produces, directs, and shoots short and medium-length documentaries and advocacy videos for a variety of clients.

Projects he’s directed have screened at film festivals both locally and internationally, including Hot Docs in Toronto and DOXA in Vancouver. His work as a cinematographer has been shown at Oscar-qualifying international festivals and reviewed in Wired and the New York Times.

Eric is interested in projects that explore worlds outside of the mainstream, and the intersection of radical advocacy and mainstream accessibility. His style of shooting and directing emphasizes verité storytelling, with a preference for open spaces, long takes, and working with people who respect the storytelling power of a carefully-crafted image. 

Eric prides himself in taking time to listen and reflect on how he can best support his clients' and subjects’ stories.  Documentary film as a medium is uniquely positioned to interject a dose of empathy into our understanding of the world around us, and he is grateful for the opportunity to be a part of projects that foster and uplift this process.
