About Us.

We produce short documentaries, business profiles, promotional films, commercials, testimonial and training videos for businesses and nonprofits in Austin and across Texas.

You need a production partner that can help you fine-tune a message, offer helpful recommendations, take responsibility for, and coordinate your project from start to finish. You want to break new ground with your video and leave boring cliches dead on the side of the road.

I write, direct, shoot, edit and oversee all aspects of video production at Cognitive Films. I count my blessings every day as I pursue my passion for filmmaking and storytelling, all while living with my extremely talented wife in one of the best cities in the world for independent filmmakers: Austin, TX. If you love what you do, I look forward to working with you.

Cognitive Films Clients

All I have to say is wow – a million times over. You are truly gifted. From the beginning we could tell that you “got it” and we are thrilled with the video.

- Vivian Shudde, Executive Director of The Brookwood Community

I’ve enjoyed working with you, and appreciate the creativity and expertise you have brought to this project. I believe that the videos will help us effectively tell the story of donor milk, and
therefore, improve the lives of preterm infants. Thank you!

- Kimberly Updegrove, Executive Director of the Mothers’ Milk Bank at Austin

Carson, we couldn’t be happier with my cooking video! It is awesome and you were so easy to work with! Thanks again!
