Award-winning nonfiction filmmaking is where it all started for Jux Media. Journalism and a cinematic style come together in our productions to tell unique stories in a compelling way.
In our opinion, documentary is one of the most powerful tools in the modern media toolbox. There’s something particularly effective about watching and listening to someone as they articulate, in their own words and a natural way, about what they’re passionate about. This is true whether they’re passionate about a product, a service, a goal, a piece of history, or a specific story. It draws listeners closer, and people respond especially well to what shows signs of being authentic and real.
An authentic story told well, around visually captivating imagery, can really capture an audience’s imagination and give them a picture of what you want them to know. So, to that end, Jux Media has perfected the art of the interview, putting entrepreneurs, history makers, experts, artists and all kinds of others in front of our cameras and letting them reveal themselves.
Then, we capture cinematic, high-quality footage using the latest techniques and our RED Cinema Cameras, Sony and Canon cameras, high-end lenses, camera sliders and other superior motion picture and audio gear, and blend it around the interviews in an edit that tells the story effectively and beautifully.
Versions of this can be done easily, cheaply and with only average quality (and therefore average results). But we pride ourselves on doing it excellently, and thus helping you punch above your weight.
Some of Jux Media’s documentary work has been for films that have screened at festivals around the world and streamed on Amazon, like the ones commissioned for the Colorado River Indian Tribes or the feature-length movie Leaving My Father’s Faith.
Others are shorter, like the short film that profiled silversmith and influencer Jillian Likiwski (The Noisy Plume). But all of them are documentary-style, and using variations of our essential technique.
