The client and their projects are priority #1. Projects that are completed on-time, on budget with no surprises.  At Fire Horse Films, Jean-Paul has stressed that it’s our job to make the client look like the hero. It’s not about us looking good, we already do, it’s about making the Marketing Director, Promotions Manager, Field Producer, whomever is in charge of the project, look their best to their boss and make their company standout visually.

We just don’t wear capes or carry hammers.
