Believe is a family. We are impassioned creatives in pursuit of beauty and humanity in every pursuit, an international community of directors, photographers and artists devoted to visual innovation and creative storytelling across an ever-evolving media landscape. Through our unwavering commitment to quality, we have built a reputation for excellence rivaled by few.
Founded in 2000 by Liz Silver and Luke Thornton, Believe has always sought a familial approach to representation and a hands-on commitment to every production. From the genesis of the company, our entrepreneurial spirit, roots in the music video world and our eye for new talent have provided the fertile ground upon which something beautiful and ever-evolving blossomed and continues to flourish.
Our roster is home to legends of film and television, iconic pioneers of music video and fashion, masters of commercial work–as well as the new faces and disruptors breaking ground today. We pride ourselves as much on those of our relationships that span decades as we do on the opportunity to foster new generations of talent and provide the nurturing and resources necessary for artists to reach their truest potential. The exceptional work of our directors has been celebrated at such awards as the Cannes Lions, The Clios, The Addys, SXSW and the MTV Awards.
With offices in Los Angeles, New York, and London, Believe has never seen the potential for creative collaboration as one limited in scope or scale, by language or location. We bring to every project a wealth of experience and a cache of adaptive strategies built up over years of delivering top-tier work to the world’s most esteemed brands, agencies, record labels and iconic musical artists. We make lasting relationships each time we engage in a project, friendships that bolster us and provide us friendly ports across the globe.
Believe is a longstanding champion of gender parity with a history of signing and developing female directors since its inception. We are certified since 2009 by the WBENC, a leading advocate for women business owners and entrepreneurs.
