- Q?What is Cinevore?
Cinevore is a group of highly motivated creative nerds working out of the Greater Philadelphia area that come together to work on films, shows (for TV and web), and other cool fiction projects. Usually these involve dragons or spaceships or something.
- Q?So you make shows or movies or what?
Yes, and yes. We have made shows for web for many years, which have led to making shows for WHYY-TV Philadelphia (Moot), and short films for clients and festivals alike.
Sometimes we make written comedy like blogs or horoscopes that make fun of you, sometimes we provide punch-up to other people’s scripts. We do commercial non-fiction work too, but usually under THIS banner (you sci-fi geeks may get the reference and why it’s called that). Cinevore is where we keep the creative stuff.
- Q?Can I hire you?
Yes! We develop and produce high-quality fiction internally but also for clients and partners. Our last four stand-alone shorts, as well as our last short-form comedy series, were projects for hire. We pitched ideas matching the client’s needs until they liked one, then we wrote a script, worked up a budget, cast, crewed, scheduled, filmed, scored, and edited it, and delivered it.
We have also optioned creative content developed in-house to partner companies for film and television.
If any of that is what you’re looking for, get in touch!
If what you want is an event documented, a commercial for your company, or a promotional video, our principals also run Crystalline Studios, so you can get in touch HERE.
