North Shore creates media that inspires. Our work connects audiences with real people, places, and experiences.

We make films and other media for museums & visitor centers, corporations, broadcast television and other platforms. North Shore is a full-service production house, and we work with our clients to empower them as co-creators of their projects. We create at every stage of the process, from media and concept design through scripting, planning, production, post and delivery.

North Shore was founded by Rory Banyard in 1996 as a home base from which to launch filmmaking adventures. Since that time the company has become a hub from which a group of talented writers, producer/directors, directors of photography and editors make award-winning work. For over twenty years, we have been marrying compelling stories with gorgeous visual imagery. We live for this, and we keep looking forward to the next great project.
