We tell stories.

So who are we? Shepardgate is headed by Jason Pugatch, a screenwriter and documentary filmmaker who spent 7 years helping to build an arts education non profit in Los Angeles. We work alongside the best digital professionals in the business both locally (Boston, MA) and around the country but have a very personal story development and post- production process.

Just like Freshman English, video is a requirement in today’s business and non profit environment. We’re comfortable woking at any level, pace and budget, and with anyone from fledgling non profit to celebrity endorsed causes. Mostly, we’re here to help.

  • Combining a love of storytelling with mission-driven, impact-oriented documentary filmmaking.
