Film Department

Welcome to Black Tide Graphic Design's Film/Video Department !

Please browse around and look at some of the cool things we have done.
We are proud of our work and have received kudos from our customers also.

We are guerrilla filmmakers. We can make video projects happen with a minimal crew and less than
a million dollar budget. The big guys call that micro budget.

Here are some of the talented producers and directors and we have worked with. The list is short because my memory isn't too good but Diva knows the crew here has worked with many others.
