Can you remake a classic?

Of course you can, but doing it justice is the hard part. Hand Crank Films has been a staple of video production in Bellingham and Seattle for the past 15 years. It is a hub where filmmakers come together, collaborate and grow. The talent that has worked under the Hand Crank roof is immense, and it shows in the catalogue and impact.

People know the name Hand Crank Films. It means something to a lot of people, and it means something to us too. That’s why we are here: to continue the legacy of making beautiful films with amazing people.

So how do you remake a classic? You start by feeling there’s something new to say. You need fresh faces and new voices to help retell the story. There are challenges. There is pressure. There is expectation. You have to find ways to innovate. But innovation only comes with change. So, you have to change. So, you have to have a culture that is fearless, a space that is safe to fail, an environment where you always ask ‘Can it be better?”

We love that because that is how we feel about everything we do. Can it be better? The answer is always yes. And it’s always worth a try.
