Hinge Visual is an independent production company based in Vancouver, owned and operated by Darcy Muenchrath. With over ten years of experience in filmmaking and video production – as well as twenty plus years of experience in design and art direction – Hinge Visual is a production company with a difference.

Our work aims to ensure that compelling creativity is at the heart of any project we pursue. We have always been committed to producing thoughtful, impactful and, above all else, finely crafted video for a wide range of clients. Our primary goal is to put your story in focus.

Why choose video?

The world of media is constantly in a state of flux and transition. Mediums that businesses and advertisers once relied on to reach an audience have either declined in value or become too costly. Today, video is one storytelling medium that continues to grow in relevance and influence while also becoming more cost effective over time. In other words, it has become one of the most effective marketing tool to tell your story

Why choose Hinge Visual?

Simply put, we adopt a unique approach when it comes to video production. Our inspiration is grounded in, and taken from, a background in design and visual art. Every frame is paramount, every angle is considered, and every moment of the process is carefully thought through. All to ensure that the final piece delivered to you is of the highest quality.

I worked with Darcy on an international project through University of Toronto. Darcy made 2 documentary short films about our international surgical outreach in Uganda. A medical documentary in an African country can be a daunting task. In particular the film maker has to have the right balance of proactive filming and cultural sensitivity. Darcy struck that balance to a tee. He was universally liked by all and a pleasure to work with. His professional and friendly manner allowed people to be natural. The final product he delivered was exceptional and is something that the team members, University of Toronto, the department of ophthalmology, and the Ugandan surgeons can all be proud of. Thank you Darcy for your dedication, hard work, and creativity.

Darcy is a pleasure to work with and always goes the extra mile for his clients. He is creative and really thinks about the underlying story, what it truly means and how this will connect and display throughout the video. He is adept at seeing your vision and working with you to bring that to life.

In a fast paced world of technology, social media, digital, and video it sometimes can be a daunting task deciding what to do and with whom you might want to work with to present and create a snapshot of your business.

Darcy is a talented, inquisitive and artistic cinematographer who not only is passionate about his professional work; he is an individual who is dedicated to the entire process and fully understanding your goals and needs. He is patient, collaborative and receptive to feedback throughout the process to ensure his documentary video exceeds expectation, reflects and embodies your values and story. 

I would not hesitate to work with Darcy on future projects. He is an absolute delight – you will not be disappointed when working with Darcy!
