We produce, direct, and market content.
Taylor Reid Creative Agency was founded on a simple idea. By taking the run-and-gun style of documentary filmmaking and applying it to advertising, it is possible to make beautiful work that tells important stories.
We are young, and we see that as an asset. We understand that a modern visual approach is necessary to cut through the noise in today's crowded market.
Having produced projects all over the world, often in remote locations like Tanzania, Burkina Faso, Chile, Myanmar, and Japan, we understand that story is key.
