DIGITAL ATMOSPHERE ARCHITECTS. CINEMATIC STORYTELLERS. INSTAGRAM STRATEGISTS.
On a cold winter day in December 2012, Sean and Crystal were sitting on a couch, binge watching one of the most addicting Netflix series: "Weeds." Maybe it was the crazy, fearlessness of the characters on that TV show that gave them the courage to take a leap and start a film production company... as they pinned together a vision board on Pinterest with clients like Dior and Target on it.
The goal from the first spark of its inception was always to do one thing: create iconic work and use the power of pictures and story to make every client legendary.
Since those first couch days, Bast Pictures has evolved from its Bast Kitten years and matured into a powerful, creative beast. Bast is a courageous and innovative team that understands how to ideate and execute sustainable visions on a grand scale. We are highly adaptable, divergent creators and have a passion for designing rich digital atmospheres and visuals that tell stories. We believe in being rooted in love first - in order to expand and grow a vision. We always aim to deeply connect to the heart using intuitive, soul centered and intelligent creative direction that can create global movements... and in a way transcend and bend time.
