ModernEpic creates beautiful and intellectually engaging video content across all platforms. ModernEpic's projects fall into one of four production areas: TV and documentary; VR experiences; E-Learning modules, and Branded content.
ModernEpic is a full service international studio with experience working across the entire globe. In the last decades we’ve worked in more than fifty countries and on all seven continents. We’ve built an unrivaled network of producers, camera and sound operators, fixers, translators, broadcasters, and educators.
ModernEpic has created hundreds of hours of documentary television for the world's major broadcasters. And we are currently hard at work on three feature documentary projects:
Very Messy And Very Beautiful (2017), Fight Knight (2016), and Prophetic Disobedience (2018)
2016 was the year that Virtual Reality (VR) became a major new medium all its own. ModernEpic was accepted into the exclusive Google/GoPro Limited Access Partnership for creating immersive VR content. We shoot with the incredible Odyssey Camera Array and are able to rely on Google for all our post-production stitching services. This partnership has allowed ModernEpic access to the best VR production technologies available today.
