Our History

Founded 2015

A few years ago, a group of friends were headed on a roadtrip to the desert for a film shoot over several weeks. We were all burnt out from the corporate grind of projects that we were working on in the industry. Under the New Mexico stars, we sat around a bonfire, and the idea for Traverse Image began

In July of 2015 that dream materialized when we founded Traverse Image LLC, a Colorado production company with an outdoor focus specializing in crafting films for broadcast and brands. We made it our mission to make sure that work in film production leaves  a positive impact on the world while bettering the human experience. 

MANIFESTO

We are driven by the ever-alluring ambition to create new opportunities. We define ourselves through the achievements of our work. That there is nothing you can not accomplish with hard work, sheer determination, and a good plan. Achievement comes with the understanding that you can not define success until you’ve learned how to fail. Share the scenes in the story of your journey. Passion is transparent. Create Fearlessly.

The Traverse Image Approach

Creating a production company had been an dream of mine for several years before I founded Traverse Image. I love documentary filmmaking and wanted to create a company that would craft quality stories in that same authentic, cinematic and character-driven style. Each day I continue to be excited to see this idea come to life as we work with our clients and partners to create visually-stunning films.

VISION

The primary goal of Traverse Image is to create a Colorado film company that crafts well produced, high production value cinematic films and branded media packages. We consider ourselves as an outdoor brand that crafts films to grow our production capabilities to further enhance the quality of our products. What we have learned from our roots in telling the stories of craft brewers, is that your product needs to stand for something.The long term vision is to create Traverse Image as an industry leader for documentary production that has established national recognition for the brand and a notable reputation with outdoor companies, networks and distributors.
