OUR STORY

Not satisfied with the representation of minority characters, we strive to bring them to the forefront of our work. Our love of video games, military science fiction, and all things nerdy have a heavy influence in our stories as well. 

We founded Story Mode with the mission of creating digital content unafraid to tackle controversial issues and subvert expectations in meaningful ways.

Our goal is to make your ideas come to life, working within your budget to deliver a stellar product. From start to finish, we can help you craft the perfect music video, commercial or film.
