It's all about the story, and we love to tell stories.

 

OUR STORY

Imagine if Batman and Superman teamed up to shoot movies . . .  the Joker would run wild, it would be utter chaos, mass hysteria! That's why they leave the filmmaking to Samuel and Louis.

Check out a recent interview with the Hampshire Film Festival that we gave for Moving Day.

Our Company

Samuel Z. P. Thomas and Louis Hunter first collaborated in film school over a decade ago.  Independently, they've worn many different hats in the industry: producer, director, writer, editor. However, their most satisfying success has been together - creating films and videos for the festival circuit and their clients.

Ourselves

Samuel Z. P. Thomas

Director / Editor

Samuel has a natural feel for story flow that makes him a great fit for both the director’s chair and the edit bay. He currently works in production and post for a major internet broadcaster, and has formed Ogopogo Film Co., with his film school buddy, Louis Hunter.

In addition to creating award-winning films he enjoys playing Texas Hold 'Em (even when he doesn't win), and he is blessed by the love of his wife and three boys.

Louis Hunter

Producer / Writer

Cast as a loveable but cantankerous old man in his 5th grade play, Louis found some big laughs and a love for performance. This evolved into a love for storytelling. After film school, a stint in television news, and other adventures, he’s come back to film. He and Samuel (his producing partner since college) have formed Ogopogo Film Co, a production company dedicated to connecting characters and audience. He has also seen life come full circle - becoming a loveable but cantankerous husband and father of two.

So what is an Ogopogo?

A Canadian Sea Monster.

What does that have to do with film and video?  Nothing.  It's a cool word.  And a reminder that with good storytelling, something lies beneath.
