We are not a pants company. 

Nothing against pants. They’re practical. They’re fashionable. They go great with shirts. But when award-winning filmmaker Joshua Seftel founded Smartypants, his mission was not to create a pants company. His goal was to craft stories that connect with people. 

We are a collection of brand-builders. Problem-solvers. Bone-rattlers. And tear-jerkers

We are documentarian thought-provokers, independent truth-seekers, and non-profit do-gooders

We collaborate with game-changers. Our clients are risk-takers. And our projects are conversation-starters. (They’re also award-winners.
