Our Story

Whether you're raving about the series you binged on the weekend or quoting lines from your favorite film, the universal language of cinema and TV lovers alike always comes back to the same question: "Have You Seen This?"

We founded HYST in 2019 with the goal of making a movie. A few short months later, we wrapped our first feature film. Since then, we've produced an array of music videos, short films, and features, and have several original scripts in development.

Along our journey, we've acquired a lot of sweet gear, made a lot of amazing connections, and learned that making a movie is a lot more than simply pointing a camera and calling out, "Action!"

 

It's about story. And that's why at HYST, story drives everything we do.

Your Story

We want to bring your vision to life.

We're more than a production company... We're storytellers who want to help you discover and share your unique perspective with the world. Artist, brand, or not-for-profit, you deserve compelling, original content that leaves a meaningful impression on your audience.

You have a story. We're here to help you tell it.
