We are passionate about creating documentaries that honor our American Heroes and their untold stories.
We are constantly driven to discover new and innovative ways to connect with our audience with compelling documentaries that inspire the best in each of us. We believe we can impact the lives of our audience through the art of film making.
The Leadership of Monument Multi-Media is focused on the excellence in film making for documentaries. What makes us unique is our desire to create films that inform, educate and transform the lives of our audience.
Currently we have begun production on a new documentary honoring baseball legend’s, Harmon Clayton Killebrew, who was one of the most feared hitters in the American League during the 1960’s. He earned his nickname “The Killer” due to his immense force at bat, he hit 573 home runs over 22 years with more home runs than any other right-handed batter in American League history. Expected release date is Winter/Spring 2020.
We are a dedicated team of hard working creatives who are storytellers. We search for American stories that may have gone unnoticed or have been forgotten. Our professional team takes this challenge very seriously and explore new methods to illuminate these stories with respect and dignity. Our documentaries are the result of team effort, and we continually strive to push the boundaries to deliver a film that is nothing short of “Wow!”
