Since 2008, East Stream Studio has been writing and independently developing creative properties for a wide variety of projects in film, print and pop music. Since then our catalogue of completed and copyrighted works has grown significantly. Also, our works in-development continue to grow, giving us a full slate of work for years to come. Now, with a self-funded approach, East Stream Studio has brought our first in-house project to post-production for release in December 2016, the web-series, When Fact Met Fiction.
Our goal is to create ongoing job opportunities for the creative filmmaking sector in Western North Carolina. In an independent local film industry where many projects are completed on a volunteer basis. We are committed to making high quality projects that give actors and film crew members opportunity to work for hire and hopefully expand their careers without having to relocate from Western North Carolina.
