Founded in 2008 and based in Atlanta/Newnan, GA (but often traveling around New York and the US west coast/southwest), Corybantes Productions creates documentaries, music videos, public service announcements (PSA's), and independent films.
Much of our work is associated with a community or cause first, particularly to sexual/gender minorities, earth spiritualities, and the intersections between these two. However, we are open to many causes and opportunities, so please feel free to share an idea with us or a piece you've recently produced!

As i sit here tonight, i can think back to when i was but a child, approximately 4 years old. For Christmas, i got a Snoopy drive-in Fisher- Price movie viewer with a "Snoopy and the Red Baron" cartridge. It had a small bulb that would illuminate the movie on a small drive-in screen, and it drove me just wild. I would sit for house just playing that movie over and over with the little hand crank on the side. Eventually, like most toys, i used it so much the bulb went out and it was set aside and disposed of at some garage sale or other.

voices like ghosts they flew out from his nose; he stood on his tippy toes...
tooday is the Day...D-I-E!"
