Amber Koniniec

Producer/ Director

Amber has been a highly successful producer and director in the industry for a decade now. From large scale commercials to shooting the Tour de France with her husband, she knows how to get the job done both creatively and in the most challenging of conditions. Her ability to understand these nuances of production make her an even more powerful director both on set and in the field. Her farming upbringing has instilled a balance of hard work and compassion in everything she does and with this background she developed a passion for all things automotive, agriculture, sports and storytelling. With a humble approach she is able to break down walls and get the shyest or the toughest of talent to blossom in even the most stressful situations. Amber is not just another female director checking the box, she is a force to be reckoned and loves to be producing and directing with her husband.

Corey Koniniec

Corey has been a filmmaker and cinematographer since high school. His early career found him chasing the world’s best snowboard and ski athletes around the world in nature’s most extreme environments. It is on those journeys that he learned the value of hard work, dedication and working through adversity. Corey’s approach is one that is unrelenting, dedicated and a unique vision to push the boundaries that few are willing to go. One of his mentors dubbed the phrase “Content without Borders” and that motto lives in him today. Corey has a passion for telling stories that are authentic, rare and off the beaten path. His favorite subjects are the ones that go fast. Whether it's a beautiful automobile traveling along a deserted road at sunset or chasing skiers down a harrowing slopes, no matter the challenge he is comfortable in even the most challenging of situations.
