Activity framework

Since 2007, we develop, produce and distribute interactive documentary films that give a unique, yet universal perspective on today’s most important trends and events.

From entertainment to politics we bring non-fiction stories to an international audience in partnership with leading broadcasters and news portals, using both creativity and technology to create compelling programs.

More recently, we have been developing Klynt and incubated Wonda VR, an interactive editing tool dedicated to filmmakers, photographers and journalists willing to harness the power of the Internet and VR, create and share their stories in the most open and creative way.
