AMJvisuals is a video, photo and editing production studio for documentary and commercial storytelling.

We tell important stories through the eyes of those that experience it, working with great clients like Seneca, National Ballet of Canada, Craft Ontario, Mercedez-Benz, Taylor Group, SOS, Toronto Star, Globe and Mail, Reuters and CAMH among others. 

Visual storytelling comes in many formats. Photo, audio, 360, timelapse, aerials. Just ask. We do it all.

You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone’s soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows what they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift.
— Erin Morgenstern, multimedia artist and author

MYTORONTO | A look at the inaugural MYTORONTO photo contest, which placed disposable cameras in the hands of people who have experienced homelessness and ask them to take images of the city from their perspective. Each of the top 13 winners received a $200 cash prize. The cover prize was $500. A calendar was produced and vendors were given permission to sell them on the streets. Participants buy calendars for $10 and sell them for $20, often putting money into the hands of those who needed it most.

CAGED BY CANADA | The average immigration detention in Canada is 23 days. Kashif Ali is the longest serving detainee in the country and has been detained for seven years. Ebrahim Toure has been detained for four years, with no charges. They live in a maximum-security.

NEAR BREAKING POINT | Ontario’s growing mental health demands have strained hospitals such as Southlake Regional Health Centre in Newmarket in ways healthcare officials here haven’t seen before - an overcrowding that is undermining care and failing some of our most vulnerable patients, they say. Take an exclusive look inside Southlake's mental health units and hear from the patients and staff who work inside the confines of outdated facilities.

HOW WIRETAPS EMBROILED ROB FORD | For the small group of cops listening in on the phone calls of 59 people in the gun and gang wiretap project dubbed Project Traveller, stumbling across Mayor Rob Ford came as an “utter shock.”

Our collaborations tell the tales of these fine companies.

 

Storytelling is at the core of everything we do. So it's no surprise that our corporate and commercial work is grounded in that ideology. As people we have stories to tell, as companies we can too.
