Auspicious Phoenix Productions is highly-experienced in both narrative and documentary filmmaking, and can take a project from the idea stage
through pre-production, production, and post-production. Let us know what we can create for you.



We work with our clients — writers, directors, producers, businesses, and organizations — to take an initial concept or story and move it into a shootable framework. We provide:

  • Story consultation
  • Script breakdowns
  • Location scouting and planning
  • Cast, crew, and equipment sourcing
  • Interview coaching, rehearsals, and rehearsal space


Collectively, our team is involved with over a dozen productions per year, with credits in every department — director, cinematographer, assistant director, line producer, producer, sound recordist, G&E, and production design. We have the experience and the problem solving skills to undertake any production, and our deep local networks allow us to effectively staff larger shoots as well. We also handle:

  • International shoots (All members have valid passports, travel-ready gear, and experience filming abroad)
  • Full set builds (Boston studio only)
  • On-site, event, and set photography
  • Studio photography 
  • Event, corporate, higher-ed, or legal videography


Whether it’s a longform documentary, a narrative short, or a batch of ten separate corporate interview videos, we deliver the final product to the client’s specifications and don’t stop until they are satisfied. Our designers can create titles, lower-thirds, animations, posters, disc menus, and more.
