Top-tier filmmakers + friends and family as talent + access to locations + social distancing + creative consulting.
Hometeam is a highly curated global community of owner-operator filmmakers ready, willing, and able to create impactful content close to home with camera-friendly family and friends, all while following social distancing guidelines. Each filmmaker was hand-picked from the combined global networks of Co.MISSION Content Group and Magic Seed Productions for their high level of talent and ability to deliver commercial-grade content while working remotely.

With Hometeam as your global crew, we don’t see creative constraints, we see new creative possibilities. As creative directors, directors and executive producers with deep experience in content production, our team is available as creative advisors to help adapt your creative to what is currently possible in production.
For campaigns needing larger scale productions beyond the owner-operator filmmaker approach, we scale up with additional crew members, gear and talent in states and countries where expanded crew sizes are becoming possible again. Given our national and global coverage, we’re in tune with how each state and country around the world is evolving to open up new production possibilities.
We’re grateful to be working during this time of immense change.
Our goal is to continue making things, telling great stories, and provide work to our global community of creative friends.
A portion of Hometeam production fees will be donated to the Freelancer’s Relief Fund, setup by Working Today and Freelancers Union to provide grants to freelancers experiencing economic hardship or health crisis as a result of COVID-19.
Get in touch (but at a safe social distance, of course) and let’s keep creating together.
