OUR STORY

 

My dad use to own a time machine. It was tiny, and sleek, and it was encased in a rigid black plastic.

You could fit the time machine between two hands and he would tote it around everywhere. He was always excited for the next adventure just so he could bring out the time machine and take us along on his trips. It was magical. 

It was through these trips where I began to really understand what it meant to feel connected to complete strangers, to be present when memories are born, and to watch stories come alive with energy. All this wonderful goodness centered around this one tiny gadget, his time machine.

I can’t speak for all of us, but I felt enchanted when we traveled with that machine. Something about those journeys and the people made me feel alive. That’s what we bring to Bearwalk, to create stories that connects us. Create stories that are genuine. Create reasons to unite people and bring forth their everything. And to create magic.

When we’re with you, we’re with you every step of the way.

We bring along passion, our friendship, and our loyalty. We dedicate our lives to our projects and to our friends. You have our word that we’ll be there for you in this way.

DURING THE SHOOT

Hi! We are Bearwalk, a filmmaking and creative concept company. We dream, create, deliver, and dream again. We left behind the idea of a 9-5 to pursue a life behind the lens and live in the realm of awe and wonder. The ability to spread a message and tell a story is a powerful one and like superman, we'd like to use our powers for good. And if you’re in the mood for some coffee, tea, or any beverage really, come sit down with us, we’d love to get to know you.

AND THE KIND WORDS THEY HAVE TO SAY

 

 

"I consider myself very fortunate to have crossed paths with the Bearwalk team. Brian and Daniela are two of the most creative, insightful and professional individuals I’ve worked with. They are honest storytellers. Their sophisticated visual language is still accessible and a key factor in crafting a sense of intimacy with their audiences. Our first collaboration centered around a small group of new fashion designers being introduced to the industry and the community at large. With no prior experience in the fashion world they delivered five powerful portraits of these newcomers that became instrumental in launching their careers. And as snapshots of what it means to be an aspiring designer today these film shorts continue to resonate." - Jay Calderin

“I am so grateful and thankful for having worked with Bearwalk Cinema. I can’t say enough about their professional manner, ability to portray vision and purpose, and excellent communication skills. As an artist and singer it is extremely important that I feel comfortable on set and they’ve mastered the art of making their clients feel at ease. I was able to give my best performance because I genuinely felt cared for and that my vision was being held in high regard. As we all know shooting a live music video can be extremely difficult with many unforeseen challenges. These guys took every hurdle in stride and were able to talk me through the editing process. They’ve never hesitated to explain whats happening and they are open to the discussion regarding the final product. These days, it’s hard to find professionals that are both selfless and strong in their presentation. I found that in Bearwalk and will continue to work with them over and over again. These days everyone has a camera and a computer but what sets these guys apart is the ability to tell a visual story in the most organic and professional way. If you’re looking for the best of the best, look no further. Bearwalk it is!” - Joy Daniels

 

"Since we began working with BEARWALK in 2013, Brian and Daniela have consistently proven to be professional, dedicated and highly creative. Being creative ourselves, we tend to come up with lots of new ideas on the fly. Brian and Daniela have been extremely flexible are always accommodating to our artistic ADD. We fully recommend BEARWALK for any and all of your cinematic needs." - Niki Hinkle

"Daniela and Brian are fearless film makers. I learned this while they interviewed me for the film, "A Beekeepers Exploration," when the two of them donned bee suits and immersed themselves in a world of buzzing honeybees. This fearlessness shows in their work, and in their drive to create quality films. They have a endless quest for knowledge, and they serve their thirst for exploration with visual storytelling. Working with Bearwalk has always been a pleasure!" - Renée Ricciardi
