Film is an inherently collaborative process – and success in any kind of business depends on a strong network of trusted partnerships.

In our case, these organizations and the people that run them are our friends. They always go the extra mile for us and we always do the same for them. Herne Hill’s ability to nurture these critical relationships is what sets it apart.


Excelling at our craft is rooted in skillful planning, dexterity and flawless execution: we anticipate problems, strategize scenarios, and revise frequently.

We equip ourselves with the best possible tools for the job at hand. In short, we do whatever it takes to achieve authentic, nuanced storytelling.


We understand that leadership isn’t about having the loudest voice or the final say.

Our teams are empowered to seek improvement and help create a culture where good ideas – wherever they come from – are recognized, embraced and celebrated.


For us, courage is about having the conviction to do the right thing notwithstanding looming deadlines and unforeseen roadblocks.

Successfully steering our way through complex challenges while facing creative risk is what we do. While we may not leap into battle like Herne the Hunter, we never relent when it comes to ensuring the best possible outcome.


The wellbeing of our staff is at the heart of our hybrid studio/work-at-home policy.

We’re committed to maintaining an environment where all team members’ voices can be heard and their unique artistic vision can shine. As an outcome-focused company, we care more about a result than the number of hours worked in any given day. We support each other – wherever and however needed.

Data Security & Privacy

Privacy and data security is imperative, full stop.

We're committed to protecting the confidentiality of our clients’ materials as well as the work of our studio and employees. From encrypted emails to closed, secure conferencing tools, our systems and technology team is at the forefront of best practices and emerging advances to security protocols.


Our teams of artists, technicians, and production experts are encouraged to advocate for ongoing progress and greater efficiency.

Finding a creative solution to a seemingly insurmountable difficulty requires everyone’s participation and best effort. We know that by fostering an environment where all team members are on the same page, anything is possible.


Trust is integral in any creative field.

As filmmakers, we are trusted to bring ideas to life that can be difficult to explain; our partners have faith in us, trusting we'll deliver what we promise. Our approach to all of these principles encourages a vibrant, confident culture of trust, collaboration and unparalleled expertise.
