THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

We Are ImmuneImmune Media is a media production company that offers student internships. When clients hire Immune Media to produce photography and video, they are also creating meaningful opportunities for young people to participate in the creative process.
Immunemedia.ORG is a multimedia network which is dedicated to the creative and academic pursuits of photography and visual storytelling. We curate projects and interviews to connect student artists and journalists with professional photographers and multimedia producers.

A SQUARE MILE

A name for a multimedia production wing that specializes in geographic storytelling. We love history. We love to smash social science into physical science to get at the WHY of the WHERE. Currently featured on the site is a project we were hired to create for Caldera Arts. It’s an HD platform—If your internet connection can’t swing it, go here instead.

 

SANCTUARY

A studio I built in Texas before moving to Portland. It has functioned for years as a media/artist collective. There are a handful of things I love about Texas.  This is one of ‘em.
