About Around the Reel

Around the Reel was founded in 2020 with a mission to provide a creative outlet that will enable artists to explore their talents in a film capacity by creating an environment that allows people to appreciate the skills of themselves and others.

Our plan is to shoot short films to bring our community together to showcase local talent, and while we are a Christian company, we absolutely welcome EVERYONE! We want creative individuals to use their talents to help us shoot films, storyboarding, write scripts, edit video, makeup, and special effects makeup, costume design, lighting, audio engineering, etc. We are here to encourage each other and build each other up in these specific areas. It’s not about competition but learning and growing from each other.

Our community film company consists of dreamers, calculated risk-takers, marketers, and people that go to fight for your brand. We exist to show Jesus to others, not only through our lives but through film production. We also hope to become one of the finest and most-respected media companies for small rural areas, if not nationwide, and we look forward to putting our talents to use to push your organization forward and to give God all the glory!

Around the Reel Docuseries

Around the Reel wants to give you a first-hand look at the process of filmmaking, from pre-production, production, to post-production. Our team wants to immerse you in the filmmaking process and what it’s like to be on the set of one of Around The Reel’s productions. Stay tuned!

Cup of Joy Ministries

Cup of Joy Ministries approached Around the Reel about filming a 10-Day devotional video. We were able to spend time in Roswell GA, and over three days, we were able to record ten days worth of content, which also coincides with a digital download of a 10-day devotional entitled Safe in His Arms, walking you through Psalm 23 and John 10.
