Stormfire Productions values and produces stories that make people feel more connected with the magic and mystery of everyday life.
Stormfire Productions value statements influence every piece of work we produce, with the primary goal to creating a better vision for the future of storytelling.
| Our Stories Matter.
We believe our stories matter. And if we value our stories, that means we value where the stories come from–not just from ourselves but also others. Our stories are our own, our stories can be shared, our stories can be conflicting, and all of that matters. We believe that the stories created by those who are vulnerable and historically and currently disenfranchised are valuable and need to be prioritized.
| Stories Should Inspire and Seek Truths.
We believe stories should inspire and seek truths. Sometimes the road to Truth is difficult, and so is the creative search for truth in our stories. We should always endeavor for our stories to inspire those most vulnerable and provide a mirror to our society.
| Artists Are Humans First.
We believe artists are humans first. The health and safety of our artists comes first, before any act of creativity. We strive to create a nurturing, sustainable, and resourceful atmosphere through many methods; including through finances, policy, attitude, and understanding.
| Storytelling is a Transformative Act.
We believe storytelling is a transformative act. Catharsis through stories can allow people to release trauma, prompt important conversations in communities, and can contribute to the vision of a better world for all. We understand the power of storytelling and take on the responsibility of its transformative potential.
Inspired by similar acknowledgements by Passer Vulpes Productions, Connect DC, as well as the continued work on Indigenous visibility and acknowledgment by Native activists across the world.
As a creative production company, we build relationships and make art within our respective creative communities both online and in person. In order to further our right relationship with the land and the people who continue to tend and hold it sacred, we acknowledge that many of us are creating on the lands of Indigenous communities.
Stormfire Productions is incorporated on the lands of the Nacotchtank, Pamunkey, Piscataway, Powhatan, Saponi, Seneca, Tauxenent, Tutelo and others. Our leadership also works on the lands of the Coast Salish people, the traditional home of all tribes and bands within the Duwamish, Suquamish, Tulalip and Muckleshoot nations. We acknowledge and respect the traditions and communities we work with now and in the future, and offer that same respect to those communities we may not yet know and are committed to learning. We pay respects to their elders past and present and honor their truths.
This statement is a beginning. It may evolve over time as we learn. Because land acknowledgment is only a start in applying justice towards our Indigenous siblings, Stormfire Productions also commits to including Indigenous artists and stories in our work and to support Indigenous artists and communities through platforming and resources. We plan to continue building relationships with Indigenous people where and when we can.
