Stork Films was born when two filmmaking parents had their first baby..
Like any new parents we were in awe of our baby’s every sneeze, yawn and smile. Unlike most parents we had professional equipment and editing software at our disposal to turn these special moments into cohesive montages. As we shared our videos with family and friends, there was one unanimous reaction: you should make a business out of this!
Fast forward and Stork Films has grown into a company that has produced dozens of family video portraits and promotional films for children’s-oriented businesses—from big brands to educational institutions to children’s charities.
completely centered on children.
We're here to meet the video production needs of any children's brand. Whether it's a big product brand or a small non-profit, we are excited to partner with anyone who is making the world a better, happier, fun(ner) place for children.
We take being child-focused very seriously.
This means working with child-friendly crews at the top of their field and involving (early) childhood specialists to create a safe, nurturing and above all fun-filled filming environment. Our production sets are full of kid-friendly drinks, snacks, and toys, and our shooting days always begin with a safety briefing to everyone working the set.
It also means going beyond our product – Ensuring each brand we partner with has high ethical standards within their labor policies and advocating for children's rights around the world, both through our video work and in our personal lives. We believe in bettering the lives of children not only in New York City, but throughout the entire world.
We could brag about how incredible our team is for days. From Julie and Joe's background at Columbia supporting their constantly-churning, out-of-the-box ideas, to Justin and Caryn's captivating style and always-up beat and positive attitudes. We appreciate so deeply all of the creative, hard work Jason and Melissa do behind the scenes, and are constantly collaborating with Eryn, whose background is in marketing and photography.
