IronWorx Media is a media collective, built around the idea that
IRON SHARPENS IRON
IronWorx had its beginning as a one-woman band. Realizing the valuable filmmaking opportunities made available through collaboration, founder Debbie Vu sought out local semi-professional and professional filmmakers to significantly boost the production quality of IronWorx content and provide real-world on-set experience for those selected to join the media collective.
Our mission is two-fold.
First, we specialize in creating promotional documentary-style content for non-profit organizations and mission-driven small businesses. These clients want to share their stories in order to inspire and influence others in a positive way.
It’s their passion that makes our job easy!
We all have a story to tell.
At IronWorx Media, we want to help you share it with the world.
Second, IronWorx Media is made up of a team of associates and interns who have current skill sets in creating media but also have interests in other facets of production. We create an individualized educational experience in order to get our associates and interns the experience and content that they want in order to grow.
There are opportunities everywhere; you just have to create them.
Documentary work isn’t the only thing we do. We also produce fictional narrative films. We are in post-production for “Roll Pin Punch” which was written, produced, and directed by the founder, Debbie Vu and edited by Francis Lai. The short film depicts a sparring match between two MMA fighters, both women of color, and the pivotal moments that led up to the fight.
We are in pre-production for 4 short films, one written by an associate, Seamus Bestwick, another written by an intern, Olivia Visser, and the third written by the founder of IronWorx Media, Debbie Vu. The fourth project was written by a local playwright, Rollin Jewett, which we have adapted for film. We plan to create a crowdfunding campaign for all four projects and are looking to crew up and cast in the coming months. With these projects, we have incorporated and pushed for more diversity in the characters and stories we tell by including an LGBTQ cast, the two perspectives shared by those who are impacted by mental health, as well as the deaf community.
Please reach out if you're interested in being a part of any one of these projects.
Based out of Durham, NC, we want to create work that positively impacts the community.
Like a flock of birds, we get to our destination faster by flying together rather than on our own.
Recruitment for associates is on a rolling basis. We also offer internship opportunities for those who are just beginning their journeys in filmmaking.
