We focus on telling stories that have emotional impact. 
Listening to a personʻs story, looking for the beauty in what they do, translating feeling into a visual narrative—that all takes time. We look for people that want their story told. We can only go as deep as our ability to trust and connect with each other. Because each project requires a nuanced approach depending on the clientsʻ needs, our process is highly intuitive.
We are honored to be able to work with people who are passionate about the work they do and who are determined to transfer their vision to the community at large.


We are a brother-sister team and co-founders of IN MEDIAS REZ, a media company based out of Honolulu, Hawaii. In medias res is a Latin literary term that means ‘into the midst of things,’ or ‘starting the beginning of a story right in the middle of action.’
We specialize in brand narrative videos, ethos strategy, and transformative storytelling.​
