Story is universal. It holds the power to connect us.
It inspires us to ask deeper questions and search for meaning.

We believe that the content you consume should matter, it should inspire change, share a new idea and help us walk in someone else’s shoes. This is why we are filmmakers who believe that story and production quality matters. 

Today, there is an overwhelming amount of content to consume. At Reverence Films we make sure that what we produce matters and makes a difference.

Nate spent 2 years with the team in Melbourne and the working collaboration with the team is too good to give up. Nate originally emerged from the New York city music community and has now established himself as an artist, producer, and composer rooted in tradition, but unbounded by standard and accepted convention. Branching into electronic music, mixed media, songwriting and film composition, Nate’s work is as diverse as the inspiration he draws from. Nature, love, loss, color, art, adventure and faith, along with an unrelenting inquisitive spirit drive him to create new and boundary expanding music with a variety of collaborators in a variety of genres. Nate has a true talent to answer the question “if your brand was a song, what would it sound like?”.
