At Awakened Muse, our approach to filmmaking goes beyond making great films.

We choose stories that have the power to expand consciousness, inspire action, and create change.

We choose to spread awareness about the shadow aspects of society, focusing on people that are

unseen, on heroes that are rarely celebrated, on those make it their business to lift people up.

Before we can move someone, we have to be be moved. If that resonates, let us know.

We’d love to hear your story.

Do you remember?


Benjamin (Creative Director) and Adam Warmington (Director) collaborated on this piece for First Place for Youth, an organization aimed at helping foster youth transition to adulthood. It was made possible by a generous grant from Super Bowl 50.

18 is a defining moment in everyone’s life, but for foster youth who are too young to be on their own—it’s monumental. With the right guidance and support, they can defy the odds stacked against them. And ultimately, reverse the cycle of poverty and write a new, brighter economic future.

Check out First Place for Youth's new campaign to learn how some of your favorite celebrities got through this bumpy transition to adulthood, and why they're committed to helping foster youth do the same. Visit http://firstplaceforyouth.org to learn more and donate.


There are no Goodbye's


NO PLACE TO FALL is a film about the sacrifices our soldiers and families make for our freedom. It a poetic story with a very human sentiment. The film shows the struggle of a couple trying to deal with a complicated issue that lurks within the subtext of their conversation even as they try to enjoy the last moments before they have to say goodbye.
