Hello everyone, and welcome to our website! We are the documentary film production company formerly known as NHC GROUP MEDIA. We are very proud of the work produced under that name; however, we felt that we need a name more in keeping with our vision – and so Conceptualist Films was born.
The angry red line underneath the word (as I write this post) indicates that in a typical dictionary, “conceptualist” is not a proper word. Perfect, for we don’t want to be typical in the films we create! Our Founder and Director, Francisco José Ricardo, had the idea that while there are innumerable wonderful documentaries out there to enjoy and from which to learn, they generally follow a similar format – a three-part structure to take you on the journey of discovery, usually including a lot of “talking head” discussion. Francisco and Conceptualist films (or CF) want to shy away from that format and make films that are visually very different from what you might think of when you think of documentaries. Engaging, thought-provoking, and innovative are the words that drive our work.
So, what will you see here? Information on our latest ideas, from feature-length documentaries to shorter film essays, tidbits of our works-in-progress, and we’d like to develop ways in which this website can be interactive, so you as the reader are a participant in the process as well.
I’ll close this introductory post with a video from our YouTube channel – wherein I, Adrienne Chamberlin, come into contact with a green screen, and via the clever, creative hand of our Director Francisco
