The Jigsaw Ensemble
We love to play in the digital sandbox, taking advantage of the unparalleled access to premium talent and innovative technology to build resonate, interactive experiences through meaningful storytelling.
We've overseen all aspects of production from pitch/development through filming and post-production including all marketing and press strategies, often acting as a much needed buffer between departments and cultivating the relationship between Artists and Brand Sponsors.
Below are samples of some of the playgrounds we've been honored to help build. If you want to bring long-form narrative storytelling to your audience, let's grab your favorite beverage and discuss our next collaboration.
