about us

Mission Ranch Films believes that the foundation of all good stories is truth. To that end, we are building a fantasy story universe where real traumas and spiritual realities can be explored and experienced in the context of dynamic characters and their struggles.

The initial vision of Mission Ranch Films is to produce a minimum of six feature films that would take place in this story universe. In addition, we are actively developing spinoff projects for other media outlets, including a television series, graphic novel, video game, podcast, and a YouTube Channel Vlog for artists and creators, just to name a few.

Given the scope of all that lies ahead, it would be impossible to fulfill this vision without the help of other like-minded creatives with a passion for world building and storytelling. I am blessed to have such a team. It is my honor to introduce to you the creative geniuses behind our current slate of films:

INDIGENOUS PEOPLES ADVISORY COUNCIL

At the center of our story universe is Yellowstone National Park and the pacific northwest region of the U.S.A. These territories are home to many Native American legends, spiritual beliefs, and histories. Theirs is a story of trauma marked by resilience and spiritual devotion. As we developed the mythology of our fantasy story world, it became apparent that this convergence of trauma histories and spiritual realities needed to be explored. 

However, in order to honor and accurately represent the rich traditions and cultural heritage of the tribal communities, we realized we needed to form an advisory board comprised of Native Americans with expert knowledge on the religious practices and beliefs of their people, as well as the traumatic histories of the Montana tribal communities. 

The following individuals have graciously agreed to join our board, where they will play a vital role by offering council, feedback, and advice as we seek to fulfill the great vision before us. Mission Ranch Films is honored to introduce our Indigenous Peoples Advisory Council:
