Firebrand Films,  a minority women business enterprise was established in 1997 and geared to tackle the current age of advertising and content creation.  Traditional commercials, longer format web content and documentaries are our strengths.  Utilizing various directorial talent from various disciplines that include writers, photographers and feature filmmakers. Firebrand Films is the vision of  Director Paul Stone and Executive Producer Claudia Montano. Claudia is a force to be reckoned with, having her finger on the pulse of what a production company should be. Claudia’s approach is lean and mean allowing her company to take on traditional advertising as well as other projects that operate on a variety of different budget levels. Paul’s contemporary and intimate style of filmmaking combines an authentic, documentary sensibility with a highly polished cinematic feel. He has a background as a commercial editor and cinematographer so it’s not surprising that all his shots are carefully crafted and beautifully composed. We are working closely with our clients, our production staff, and our crew and vendors to produce successful and SAFE shoots that follow civic and industry protocol. Following guidelines published by the CDC, the Department of Public Health, and the AICP Workplace Guidelines, we have devised a simple set of safety protocols for prep, shoot, and wrap.
