Writing. Development. Production.
Pensé Productions is an emerging micro-studio that creates and develops narrative properties in-house, with stories that fit into two categories: major motion-pictures written to be large scale hollywood collaborations, and lower budget independent features designed for smaller production teams.
Pensé Productions believes that a vastly underserved market exists for film and television projects that challenge the Hollywood status quo with storylines that provide a moral to the story without moralizing. Hollywood, and increasingly Silicon Valley, control the content that shapes our culture. Worldviews held by the media and technology elite are shockingly uniform, with traditional concepts of liberty replaced by license, freedom replaced by dependency, and religious principles dismissed.
Pensé Production's leadership Scott Sander & Arthur Hair went to high school together before developing Sightsound Technologies, the company that would execute the first digital sale of a song and movie over the internet. They traversed the Digital landscape for a decade making partnerships and changing minds about how hollywood would exist in a post-internet world, only to find themselves in a high-profile defense of their patents against Apple in an environment hostile to intellectual property rights.
Christian and Colin Sander are brothers and storytellers, who after picking up cameras at a young age went on to create feature-length sports documentaries, host premieres, pioneer NLE workflows, and produce commercials - all before attending film school and ultimately working for major hollywood names. As a left brain / right brain duo, Christian shouldered producing duties, while Colin gravitated toward light and scene, working as a cinematographer and director. Skating, skiing, and the mountains continue to influence their vision and abilities in storytelling and production.
Today, Pensé specializes in developing feature film and television properties for both traditional studio models and new distribution outlets. Pensé also produces commercial content for our clients and partners. Our commitment is to telling authentic stories that promote human dignity.
