“We showed the videos to a prospective funder, who was immediately drawn into the video. I watched a visceral shift occur. As we came to the end, he turned to me and said, 'We need to fund you’.”

Your mission is our guiding light at Mission Pictures. We connect you to your audience by partnering with you to create beautiful movies and addictive social media assets that tell the authentic, true story of you and your work.


Mission Pictures was founded by Shane King and Arne Johnson (friends since they were 11-years-old) right after their feature film “Girls Rock!” had a successful theatrical run, and demand for their talents poured in. Combined they have four kids, one Emmy nomination, over 100 satisfied clients and 120,000 bees.

Your vision informs how we see the telling details that reveal your world. Your audience will know you in a way they haven't before, because our deep passion for communicating your organization's impact and stunning production values will allow them to experience who you really are.
