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 experimental storytelling.​
