SMOCKS PROTECT THE ARTIST

Films are the pamphlets of the Millennial age – a single well-made and well-placed piece can have a profound effect on popular culture. Smock seeks to empower filmmakers to speak the language of this age by concisely and clearly using innovative techniques, technology and media to develop new channels for artists to share their work directly with their audiences.

ABOUT US

Smock Media (Smock) is a documentary film and virtual reality production company dedicated to producing empathetic films and virtual experiences that positively impact public discussion on freedom and human rights related subjects while protecting the creative expression of our artists. Our goal is to capture and present the true stories of amazing individuals whose life experiences exemplify the very best of the human struggle for dignity.

Smock believes strongly that the key to engaging storytelling, even in documentary films, is the development of strong characters that follow clear narrative arcs. We bring this mindset to the development, pre-production, production, post-production and impact production of every project we undertake. With our 150+ years of multimedia production experience across the whole spectrum of cinematic disciplines, we know how to walk the line between story and ideas to generate compelling and informative narratives centered on strong characters.

OUR TEAM

With multimedia production experience across the whole spectrum of cinematic disciplines, Smock knows how to generate compelling and informative narratives that positively impact well-defined, but elusive Millennial audiences.

WITNESS PROJECT

Witness Project is a short documentary series created in partnership with Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation (VOC) that records the experiences of a number of individuals who were – and in some cases still are – victims of persecution by collectivist regimes in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Each video aims to cultivate empathy and understanding from a wider audience that may be unfamiliar with the history of collectivist tyranny, dramatizing each witness’s experience and wisdom in an easily understood personal narrative.  Smock Media has found that this approach is much more effective at drawing viewers into the reality of these stories rather than numbing the audience with a catalog of unspeakable horrors from yesteryear that may shock but ultimately are so outside viewers’ personal experiences that they fail to truly inform the audience’s worldviews.
