“We are the chosen in each family. There is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them seem alive again. To tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve…we are the storytellers." ~unknown
Our story begins while we were quite young. My brother’s and I have always had an interest in film making, especially my brothers. We’d film ourselves re-enacting scenes from famous movies, producing our own feature films, and just having fun. We came up with the name of our production company from our brother Jake’s British bulldog named Sarge. During World War II the British bulldog became synonymous with Prime Minister Winston Churchill. It became a national icon symbolizing determination, tenacity, pluck, and unrelenting courage in the face of a larger foe. Our grandfather who fought in World War II attended Yale University after the war and the bulldog is also Yale’s mascot, so the bulldog has been intertwined within our family for many years. We feel it best represents our family owned production company, not just for what it stands for, but for its intimate relationship with our family.
