Holysmokes creates films for good. The world needs more stories about love, struggle and triumph.

The Holysmokes team brings more than 15 years of videography experience to each project. With a background as documentary filmmakers, our honest, hope-filled storytelling style permeates each video we create. Because we are excited about your story, we want your video to reflect your unique, authentic personality.

Our areas of video production expertise include pre-production, interviewing, and post-production as well as concept development, script writing and location selection.

Holysmokes Films Shayna

Meet Shayna Banfe, the hardworking leader of Holysmokes Films. She studied Scriptwriting, but discovered the need to tell important stories that already exist. She moved to documentary work to create films that tell about love, business, and to speak for those who don’t have a voice. Her joyous personality guides our upbeat aesthetic and sets people at ease on camera.

With a design and photography background, Irene has a keen eye for lighting and composition. A movie buff from a very early age, Irene strives to bring cinematic excellence to every project. She can’t promise, however, she won’t cry with you while filming your vows.
