TFA Film Studio
A Tale for the Tribe – Introducing TFA Studio for your future film storyworld
The twenty-first century is the age of ubiquitous film, with a mobile screen in every pocket. While technology may enable anyone to create corporate cinema, the ability to craft meaningful stories to film-world standards is rare indeed. Every organization on the planet must now become its own television channel or network, its own film production company. Gerd Leonhard’s Futures Agency is recognized as the bespoke film maker for executive visions and strategies, capable of producing impactful shorter films, a full feature-length movie or to create a multi-year running episodic web series crafted to your future.
Together with film-maker Jean-Francois Cardella and screen scribe James McCabe, Gerd has created the Future Agency Studio to meet the overwhelming need for content across platforms in the corporate arena. Originating concepts that can run for years over multiple channels, we take an artisanal approach, resulting in content that is dramatic, eventful and relatable to multiple communities.
We have been busy producing cool films for some pretty interesting clients, covering many different topics including the Future of HR and Learning and Digital Transformation. This brand-new film below, Change Squared / Change2, produced in association with Accenture, outlines the key challenges of exponential technological change, and how we could respond to them.
