15 YEARS LATER
As Max moves on to his new venture, Pipeline, handing over the keys to Hand Crank Films, we get behind the wheel with excitement and humility. This is a privilege: the prolific output of beautiful and emotional films is inspiring. The bar is high; the crew, clients and community expect great things from every project, and so do we. That’s why we are here. Hand Crank Films means something to a lot of people, and it means something to us too.
Our team has a history with Hand Crank Films. Some of us have done the work and continue to, some of us have admired the work from a distance, some of us have hired the Crank to create something beautiful, and some of us have been lucky enough to be a part of building the Hand Crank Films brand back in the early days.
But with change, there’s always questions about what that change will look like. For the new Hand Crank Films team and all the returning talent, we know that the future is bright. We will continue to produce high quality content, driven by creative. But we will also be looking for new talent and find opportunities to amplify those voices to grow the Hand Crank Films brand. It won’t always be easy, but there is a solid foundation to build upon: a legacy of beautiful films made by amazing people. We will continue that moving forward.
