Five Sixteen Films is the brainchild of an otherwise unqualified storyteller that exists to find and share extraordinary stories of ordinary people. We focus on documentary filmmaking to present reality in a way that connects us all a little closer together.

"Five Sixteen" comes from 1 Thessalonians 5:16, "Rejoice always" (ESV), which is the approach we want to take in sharing people's stories.

We call this The 5:16 Promise.


We promise to rejoice always and tell extraordinary stories of ordinary people. In doing so, we hope to see a bit of heaven on earth – awaiting the day Christ returns to renew us with His pure and complete joy.

Based in sunny Southern California :)

So who actually am I?
