Dreams Factory has a combination of director/cinematographers and editors that work under the umbrella of it's production team. They also work as director/cinematographer duos on various projects. Sunny, Ryan and Tom all offer a wealth of experience, and each one brings a unique visual and creative sensibility to your projects. In addition to their work behind the camera they each excel in various aspects of post production, as indicated in their reels and bios.

With the recent addition of our new shooting studio at 2811 West Marshall Street, complete with a three sided 40ft x 40ft seamless wall (currently chroma key green), and the adjacent shooting stage with a cusom set that can be configured as a kitchen, living room, and more, Dreams Factory provides an easy "one stop" solution for creative and broadcast needs; Ryan, Sunny, and Tom for directing, cinematography and editorial; Paul Bruski and In Your Ear for audio; and Elias Dancey and Flatland Creative for 2-D animation capabilities. With today's technology and the ease of working remotely we also have many options to outsource highly intense 3-D animations if the need should ever arise.
