    Every Story is a Little Light in the Dark.

    Little Lights



Our passion and expertise is storytelling. We believe that there is nothing more powerful than a story – it changes perceptions and ignites a fire within. Stories are universal and every form of communication benefits from a well told story.

Branded Storytelling

Modern audiences want brands they can trust. We’re seasoned storytellers who craft stories that establish this trust and dramatize a brand’s core values – in the most emotional way, the best possible medium, for a lasting impact.

Live Action

Directing films is part of our DNA, we think, breathe and dream film. From interviews to exciting brand documentaries or highly engaging narrative films – the story is what makes them stand apart.


Animated content works across different cultures, languages & markets and is a perfect tool to explain complex topics, encapsulate the emotional core or bring unique characters & worlds to life.


Apps, mobile games or interactive experiences all benefit from solid storytelling that will touch an audience deeply. Each new platform has it’s own rules, and we evolve with them: stories are universal.

Coming from the depth of film production, Daniela finally found her place at Little Lights Studio. She coordinates all incoming and outgoings productional procedures and is always on the hunt for upcoming deadlines.
