GroundSwell Productions was founded in 2001 as Sati Media Productions. Since then, we have been actively pursuing our two-fold mission statement: to foster community access to digital video production, and to produce riveting media that inspires empathy.

We believe that true empathy grows from seeing the world through someone else’s eyes. In each of our projects we strive to let our subjects’ stories speak for themselves and create media that draws attention to the hidden corners of the globe, from down the street to the Colombian jungle.
