Departure Point Films LLC is Janelle Proulx and Tyler Kirby.
Tyler and Janelle met while pursuing their BFA and MFA degrees respectively, at Virginia Commonwealth University. After graduation, Tyler and Janelle initially pursued different career areas of interests: Tyler in small business marketing and Janelle in non-profit gallery coordination and university teaching.
Although the two had collaborated on various projects before, in the winter of 2015 Tyler and Janelle began discussing the idea of melding their passions for video production, art, education, and storytelling into a unified career by founding a production company. They have been working together since.
