Welcome to Empowered Narrative!
We make documentary films and help first-time documentary filmmakers do the same.
You have a story to tell.
Let's tell it!
How We Help Support First-Time Documentary Filmmakers
Our mission is to support first time documentary filmmakers in making their documentary films. We offer this support through 1:1 coaching, a weekly group mastermind and an online Documentary Essentials course.
We know you have an important story to tell and need some knowledge and advice on how to tell it. We're here to answer the questions you have and give you the guidance you need.
Who We Are and Our Work
Hi there, we are Chris and Stephanie. We are filmmakers, coaches, parents, world travelers and storytellers who value freedom, connection and creativity above all else.
We have collectively worked in the film industry for almost 35 years and over that time have learned the value in doing things in a way that feels good to us and feeds our souls. There is no right or wrong way. There is only the way that works for you and gets you to your objective - whatever that may be.
We feel honored to hold space for fellow storytellers and see our pursuit at this time to help support the creation and the distribution of these valuable narratives.
