It’s a recognition achieved by our talented global community of filmmakers, our entire remote team of expert producers and our forward-thinking clients. We’re filled with gratitude that ‘Fast Company’ saw the innovation at the core of Hometeam. Through our remote production and post-production model, as well as our best-in-class filmmaker network around the world, our mission has always been to bring innovation to content production. Not just in how video content is created for brands, agencies, TV networks and streaming platforms, but also in the impact these innovations have on environmental sustainability, bigger opportunities for filmmakers around the world, helping clients tell more geographically diverse stories with larger-scale creative and giving a voice to underrepresented people both behind and in front of the camera.”
