OUR VISION

From Texas to around the world.

MOVEMENT HOUSE is an Austin based collective of filmmakers, editors, photographers, and creatives.
Our work has taken us all around the world, profiling artists, craftsmen, and telling stories about the power of creativity.
At our core, we believe that stories matter.  They shape our identity, increase our empathy, and transport us to distant worlds.
Our team's past work has been recognized by Short of the Week, received multiple Vimeo Staff Picks, been featured in SXSW, and been recognized by leading curators and outlets all around the world.
As a production company, we specialize in documentary storytelling, commercials, and music videos.
Our passion is for narrative cinema that pushes the limits of independent storytelling.

We bring that passion to all the work we do.
