Our Story

In his 20s, 5:00 Films & Media founder Esteban Escobar was a successful Chilean skimboard shop owner. Until, well, he wasn’t.

He did, however, learn to shoot and edit his own commercials before moving back to the U.S. Here, he combined his technical skills with a unique eye for outcome-based storytelling and commitment to social good, turning it all into 5:00 Films & Media.

Founded in 2004 as a boutique video production company, we have since grown into a full-service video marketing agency helping nonprofits, associations, and other mission-driven organizations connect with and engage supporters through the visual medium. We focus on outcome-based storytelling; we dive deep into what’s important to our clients and what’s interesting to their audiences.

We connect mission to audience. We’re proud of the partnerships we’ve forged with our clients through our dedication to their success.

With more than 1000 projects for mission-driven organizations under our belt, we understand the needs and challenges you face, from multiple stakeholders with different goals and high expectations, to limited time and resources. We get it. We have years of experience helping hundreds of clients just like you with innovative tools and solutions.

We work in partnership with our clients to provide high-quality video and audience solutions to mission-driven organizations. We understand the unique challenges that non-profit organizations face when communicating their message with limited resources, time, and budget. Our mission is to partner with organizations to provide a guiding hand to success. We are your trusted advisor.

Each member of our team is here because we want to use our skills to make positive change. Our company mantra is the simple, central focus in everything that we do:

  • We do the right thing
  • We deliver the right solution
  • We focus on the relationship
