A Common Thread
Award-winning Los Angeles based commercial and film production company, A Common Thread, collaborates with a wide-range of national and international clients, advertising agencies and record labels. Partners J.P. McMahon and Tristan Drew personally shepherd each project from initial conception, through post-production and out into the world. With a particular eye to the digital, viral and branded content we strive to continually create content that surpasses all expectations.
The Big Picture
Moving at the pace of technology, ACT embraces emerging digital media as well as fresh directorial talent from the US and around the Globe. While we honor our roots in traditional filmmaking, we constantly explore hybrid filmmaking approaches that merge live-action, visual effects, CG, motion graphics and other techniques to create new and alternative visual realities.
In all aspects of our varied workflows, Simian has become a key technological partner. It has allowed us to streamline our review and approval process. Its ease of use has also afforded us the opportunity to distribute content across multiple platforms and devices quickly and efficiently.
Simian provides us with a modern method of instantaneous, digital communication whether we're operating locally, nationally, or globally.
It completely integrates and connects our creative world. We’ve even found its new microsite component to be an invaluable asset in promoting other projects such as our feature films.
It’s an integral part of the way we do business on a daily basis.
