What We Do
Powerful media for pressing issues.
We are passionate about visual storytelling that stimulates public dialogue & advocates for positive change.
At Talking Eyes we are passionate about visual storytelling, & we are privileged to dedicate ourselves to stories that matter.
We are a non-profit that strives to stimulate public dialogue & advocate for positive social change on the strength of our work.
We produce documentary films, multimedia, books + exhibitions that turn a probing eye on situations where people struggle unduly, where resources are poorly distributed, and where there’s tremendous opportunity to improve society for future generations. Our team is committed to uncovering the issues and celebrating the people who make a difference. We are determined to have an impact beyond publication and broadcast, and we believe that extensive outreach is integral to the process.
WHY TALKING EYES?
We have the imagination, passion & expertise to transform ideas into persuasive media.
We've spent years honing a balance between documentary projects that are supported through grants and donations, and client work that is commissioned by non-profits, foundations and media outlets. Clients come to us because they value outstanding, dynamic, and cost-effective storytelling to communicate their ideas. Foundations and donors support us because we're able to make an impact. From inspiration to concept, shooting, editing, post-production and distribution strategy, we provide a range of services and a wealth of experience.
THIRTEEN YEARS OF SUBSTANCE + DEDICATION
Since our founding in 2002 by writer/filmmaker Julie Winokur + photojournalist Ed Kashi, Talking Eyes has been at the forefront of multimedia storytelling, generating award-winning work on topics ranging from the uninsured in America to oil exploitation in the Niger Delta; from finding permanent homes for foster children to the residual impact of Agent Orange. As a 501(c)(3) public interest organization, we rely on a combination of commissioned work, grants and donations.
