DBS Films works across the Independent (Not For Profit) and Commercial (Paying The Bills) sectors
of image based storytelling. In doing so, we tell genuinely not for profit stories. Sometimes
the story is ours, sometimes we help tell yours.
Story is the magic that conjures reality and shapes our world from the hopes, dreams and aspiration of the storyteller. If the story being told, the spell forming the world, isn't yours, the world isn't either. You're just along for the ride.
Whatever and whoever's story we tell, we do so with the same passion, commitment, flair and skill as we use telling our own. DBS Films does not have a copy and paste template. Each project is bespoke, crafted for a singular purpose.
NOT FOR PROFIT
We work from the firm understanding story is what makes our world the way it is.
As such, we have the understanding, and determination, we should all have the opportunity
to contribute to that story and we do not need anyone else's permission to do so.
Not for profit is where the collaborators making up Drive By Shooting Films tell their stories. Some of which can be seen in every section of our output, in film, in photography, sound and illustration.
You're not going to like everything we do for ourselves, you might not even approve. No matter, ignore our stories, tell your own. If you need some help, our Commercial Division is just what you need.
Telling stories is an art and a craft. A skill that takes time, effort and commitment to master.
Some say it's a talent not everyone can, or has the time needed to develop.
Yet we all have a story to tell. This is where we come in. The commercial side of DBS Films is where we commit our time, our talent, and our experience, to telling your story.
Your story might be heart felt and lodged deep in your soul, it might be crazy, wonderful or fantastical. It might be simply you want to capture a special occasion or promote what you do.
Whatever it is, we'll help you do it as best as we can and you can afford. Examples of past collaboration can be seen across all of our output.
