“We do not know, so let’s explore the what if”
Pâté Productions came into existence as the result of a short story written by a 15-year-old. A love story about an older couple that explored the choices we make when life cheats us out of time. A story that needed to be shared on film.
We believe that we cannot anticipate what we cannot imagine so our strategy is to ask the audience to enter into the world of “what if”. We approach each story looking for what we don’t know, what we can explore together. We are storytellers and realize that within the fabric of these stories lie our collective experience as a culture.
As filmmakers we strive to create stories that resonate, are uplifting and that encourage people to have their own spiritual journey. Our ultimate goal after creation is to bring these works to audiences to experience and enjoy the fruits of our collaborative labors.
It is our goal to provide a trusted brand of entertainment.
