passion meets art

"No form of art goes beyond ordinary consciousness as film does, straight to our emotions, deep into the twilight of the soul." - Ingrid Bergman

It’s not about the the lights or the camera. We don't long remember a film for its stunning graphics or beautiful shots. Not even the largest budget can buy the affection of an audience.

No, we remember a film because it has meaning; it creates within us a love for its story, a hatred for its villains, a desire to emulate its heroes. We admire films driven by an unyielding and barely containable emotion, a passion, a passion strong enough to change us.

But if that passion can be combined with something greater, if it can be united with art, then the result isn't just something memorable. It's something unforgettable.

This is the moment when passion meets art.
This is Blackstone Films.


  • John-Andrew O'Rourke


    director, founder

    An avid and (sometimes) overly-zealous sports fan, John-Andrew once shattered a light bulb with his bare hands while cheering for the USMNT.

    Branden Stanley


    director of photography

    A lover of history and quality American manufacturing, Branden has never seen the inside of a Wal-Mart. Or at least, so he claims.

    Michael Oliveros


    motion graphics designer

    When he's not working in After Effects, you can probably find Mike watching a Christopher Nolan film. Or quoting one. Or many.
