WHO WE ARE
Departure Point Films LLC is Janelle Proulx and Tyler Kirby.
We met while pursuing our MFA and BFA degrees respectively in Photo & Film at Virginia Commonwealth University. After graduation, we followed different interests: Tyler in small business marketing and Janelle in non-profit gallery administration and university teaching.
In the winter of 2015 we started talking about melding our passions for filmmaking, art, education, and storytelling (and Tyler’s love of technology) into a production company. We've been working together since.
WHAT WE DO
Think of us as your outsourced in-house film team.
We adopt your message as our own and bring our passion and excitement to every project.
Many of our clients are on-going and we love getting to understand their filmmaking and communications needs as they change over time.
With an unwavering dedication to making you the most impactful, effective, and compelling films, we constantly strive for excellence in our craft and clarity in our storytelling.
HOW WE DO IT
Light gear and a nimble team.
Our crew size and equipment footprint easily scales to the needs of each project and we work with you to find the right balance.
Something unique to our company is that we both develop creative, film, and edit so we'll be with you through all stages of production from first meetings and development, to on-site filming, and all phases of editing.
We keep your project close to ensure that your message is always at the forefront and your film is expertly produced.
