Our mission at K Mitchell Media is to raise consciousness through the art of cinematic storytelling. We approach our work through identifying an overarching goal for the film. Once this direction is established the message is clarified through a survey and consultation. These brief and easy steps are used in identifying the virtue, vision, and voice of each client. This is a design sequence necessary to effectively communicate our client’s purpose and intent made in the film.
We do not interview; instead, we have a conversation. People are sufficiently fascinating to negate scripts and tele-prompters. Added to the film are primary source documents, images, and symbolic language to create subtext and meaning to support the film’s vision and voice.
An added element to our storytelling is intuitiveness, which allows for the effortless evolution of a story – “the organic thread” that aligns with the client’s vision for the film.
Upon establishing a professional relationship with the consultation and survey, clients are asked to identify 3 to 5 key words that will support the direction of the film and focus the search engine optimization for the film. Note: our work is to reveal the natural story that occurs within the stated parameters. You can find more information about work with Kathryn watching the client testimonials here.
