About Us

About us - Rekon Productions

Our Mission

We believe in the Power of Story, to evoke feeling, inspire thought, and influence change. We believe Story is a journey and we as Storytellers are the guides. We create Stories fueled by inclusion and collaboration. We create Story through production, unconstrained by media, genre, or technology. We tell our Stories to immerse and transport audiences across time, space, and memory. We tell others’ Stories by providing knowledge and resources to allow creators to unlock their imagination. We are ReKon. We share Stories.
