About Key 13 Film Partners


Creating character driven projects on a small budget

We at Key 13 feel that you don’t have to have a “gimmick” to get people to watch a movie. It’s the characters, the message, and the visuals that will draw people in. Every project that we make will have fully developed characters, a strong visual aesthetic, and a compelling story.

Our mission is to make movies that delve into the human condition, improve the quality of films in the area, and to create an avenue for artists to express their ideas.

We are always looking for talented people who love the entertainment industry, and feel they have something major to contribute. We want to be your partners in your endeavors, as you are a partner in ours. If you have a story to tell, or want to be a storyteller, we want to hear from you.

We have our own equipment that includes; cameras, lights, sound recorders, green-screen, editing (both Final Cut and Adobe), stabilizers, and other essential equipment to make virtually any project. We also compose our own music and have an in-house photographer.

The key to good films is the partnership between cast and crew. Come join us.
