Eponine Films is a boutique production company dedicated to producing distinctive feature films, television series, documentaries, short films and commercial entertainment. Established by award winning filmmakers Jim Lounsbury & Behren Schulz, we are committed to producing compelling stories that engage audiences in new & dynamic ways.
From our award winning short films, to our forthcoming feature Love is Now, Eponine has a reputation for helping everyone we work with do their best work. We believe it starts with strong collaboration, in front of and behind the camera.
We have collectively shot over 30 hours of documentary in over 20 countries over the past 10 years, and feel that documentary is a solid foundation for understanding how to capture any story in a vibrant and authentic way.
We like to think of what we do as more than just product placement, it is distinctive, targeted communication that makes an emotional connection with the audience. Something we like to call Brand Inspiring Content.
