Meridian Hill Pictures

Meridian Hill Pictures makes it possible for people to share authentic and compelling stories through the power of documentary.

MHP is a mission-driven documentary production company proudly based in Washington, DC. Started by brothers Brandon and Lance Kramer in 2010, MHP is a team of passionate and innovative filmmakers and teaching artists committed to sharing untold stories through documentary video. MHP's unique model produces independent documentary films, commissioned short-form docs, and video storytelling trainings for dozens of non-profit, educational and public partners. MHP makes films rooted in building trust with all participants, honest storytelling and an inherent respect for all perspectives. MHP’s work raises awareness of pressing social issues, democratizes the medium, builds people’s storytelling capacity, and strategically shares under-represented community perspectives with broad audiences. 

Meridian Hill Pictures’ independent films have been featured at respected film festivals including Full Frame Documentary Film Festival, San Francisco International Film Festival, Annapolis Film Festival, DC Shorts, and DC Environmental Film Festival. MHP has worked with nonprofit clients including AARP Foundation, National Park Service, John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Ashoka Foundation, and International Baccalaureate.
