Emaho Films was founded in 2016 with the vision to create engaging video content to share stories of brands, places and people in a fascinating and inspiring way.
We are driven by some of the principles of conscious capitalism, where profit is not the focus but results from achieving a higher purpose. With this in mind, Emaho spends approximately 50 percent of its time creating documentary and NGO-oriented films where the profits are quite low.
The balance time is focused on corporate films and branded content for businesses whose work is having a positive impact on the world.
Whether you already have an idea in mind or need one to be conceptualized, our team will work closely with you to develop the film. Select from the full range of services, or simply opt for a full video package.
