We develop tools and investigate ways to tell better stories.

We want the best tools to tell our stories. If there is a better process, better technology, or better point of view, we want to explore it.

At Wonder Unit, we think that spending time on developing tools isn’t a novelty, it’s a necessity. Filmmaking is problem solving, and tools and processes make arriving at solutions that much easier. But we’re not just making the tools for ourselves, we’re making them for you and your stories.

But building tomorrow’s pre-production filmmaking technology doesn’t just help us make films, it helps us close the loop.

It gives us a creative edge, improves our brand, and helps with recruiting. Even more than all that it helps to build a community of creators. That’s why we’re committed to research and development on projects that balance the practical needs of production filmmaking and the playful fun of creation, and promoting these tools as free, ready solutions for many applications.
