Founded in 2013, Epic Artists Films was formed to create mesmerizing images to present unique and entertaining content.
Always seeking to strike the right balance between commercially viable films that are also artistic, EA firmly believes in raising the bar higher. Our aim is to create film and TV content in the indie spirit, but with studio style.
Memorable films are crafted by dedicated professionals who honor and respect their craft, and by those who are fully invested in the projects. Our intent is to collaborate with other artists in the industry who share with us those same core values on every single project that we touch – big or small.
