  • Creative Services: campaign concepts, briefs, script writing, and pre-edit videos

A note on production during the Covid-19 pandemic:
We currently have the capacity to successfully execute streamlined productions while following CDC guidelines, using minimal crew while our producers and post production team work remotely from their home studios.

What's the story behind our name? Bunny Lake is the title character in Otto Preminger’s 1965 thriller “Bunny Lake Is Missing.” We recommend streaming it.

Now that we’ve introduced ourselves, we’d love to know about you and your work. Reach out at any time. We look forward to meeting you.
