Documentaries

Whether a short-doc or full-length doc, we’re going to have it be the most creative, enjoyable way ‘that provides a factual report on a particular subject‘; aka, brings the story to life.

Travel Videos

Isn’t everyone doing them now? They should be! And there’s always room for more of them. It’s one of the most impactful ways that stories are discovered and shared.

Animations

Did you know that the definition of animation is also ‘the state of being full of life or vigour; liveliness‘? We’re definitely all about that! And who doesn’t love a good cartoon…

Short Stories

The imagination can dream up a lot in a super short amount of time. It’s just all about how it’s put together. That’s where the fun and the magic are. We really like fun and magic.

Promotionals

People connect with stories much more than they do being ‘sold to‘. Today promotions and marketing are all about online video and storytelling. After all, who doesn’t love a good story?

Music Videos

This combination of lyrical and melodious storytelling is one of the best goosebump-triggers ever. Think of the songs you came to appreciate more once you saw the videos…

WHY

It’s not just one thing. Maybe it’s because we love people or that we enjoy being entertained (with good entertainment, that is). Or perhaps it’s because we’re ‘creatives’ and love art in more forms than one…

It’s all those things and it’s our lifestyle. We simply love living a full life and having great experiences and imaginative ideas. When those experiences and ideas are shared, when they’re ‘told’, we’ve got storytelling.

We create and share our stories and we also love to get to know you and our world. So what experiences and life are you living, that we can help discover and tell your stories?

Oh, yeah, and of course we use video to tell stories, because it’s just so freaking awesome!!!

Why the Name?

It’s a bit of a story. Founder Eric J. Trujillo had a dream a while back, in which a cartoon of a rhinoceros starred. What stood out the most was that the rhinoceros seemed totally independent and ‘autonomous’, yet always had a tiny bird on his back. You know, those little birds that in real life, practically live on the back of rhinoceroses. They pick off the little gnats and insects and who knows what else. They’re nourished and get a ride, the rhino seems to like it, and the two benefit one another by being themselves and doing what they do best.

The point?
Even being autonomous, or independent, is not created alone but with others.

From this dream, Eric was encouraged to draw our Auto the Rhino and his bird. Then he took it further – he decided to apply his passion for film and storytelling to sharing the stories of others.

More Than A Rhino

Get to know the faces behind our storytelling discoveries and film-creating ways. And yes, there’s Auto the Rhino; a cartoon rhino, that is. But no, we don’t have a real rhino on the team. They prefer to run wild and free, and we do too.
