For us, it’s about freedom.
Who would have dreamed just a few short years ago that governments in lock step across the globe would put their entire populations under house arrest for months, mandate masks and social distancing, and scare the majority of people into taking an experimental injection with risks that far outweigh any benefit. And to what end? The spirit behind these actions always has as its the modus operandi: controlling public narrative, deception, fear, and ultimately control and death. In every war there are fronts. Censorship and propaganda have been formidable tools on the side of tyranny. However we know that truth is stronger than lies, so we aim to battle on this front with stories that bring the truth to light. We are Story Front.
Miles Hanon, Director
Miles entered the film industry as an engineer, designing and implementing robust, versatile camera systems for the award-winning media house Compass Arts. There, he applied his technical expertise to film editing, and a new passion was unearthed: storytelling.
Following this new passion, Miles served as editor for the award-winning documentary Beyond the Gates of Splendor and the commercially successful feature End of the Spear. Through these experiences, the cornerstone of Miles’ signature style became increasingly apparent: the fusion of an engineer’s sensibility and a rare, intuitive grasp of story and emotion.
In 2006 Miles founded Story Front and shortly thereafter wrote and directed his first feature film, produced two feature documentaries, and has helped a number of organizations tell their own stories with promos and vision films.

Tom uses documentary storytelling to craft messages for regional, national and international nonprofits and foundations.
