It was 1998 when Peregrine Media Group began this journey, producing environmental films and what ever else we could muster to make ends meet. Digital Video was just coming of age, and computer editing was considered cutting edge. So with a single DV camera, a Pentium computer, a 10 GB hard drive and an ideal, we set out to enhance the way people think about the subjects we care about.
Today, nothing has changed fundamentally. Our heart is still worn on every frame. We work for brands and causes we believe in, and every production must reach further than the last. What has changed is the World that surrounds us, the way we do things, the tools we work with, and the clients we work for. Our DV cameras of old are now replaced by color infused 4K cinema cameras. Our fascination for the craft has magnified with the progression of digital cinema. Our creative options have exponentiated after nearly twenty years in the business. And most importantly, between our first project and our last, we’ve learned what makes good media great.
If you’re looking into our services you’re probably looking for a boutique production company that produces a big market product. You might be working with a tight budget but you don’t want your audience to know it. You want your vision to shine, so your audience feels what you want them to feel, and does what you want them to do. And above all, you want to sleep at night, knowing we’ve got this, because we always do. We work for clients all over the world, spanning local, regional, national, and international spheres of influence. Whether you’re a producer, creative agency, small business, or individual, we look forward to hearing about your next project.

Our Cineflex Aerial work is all captured in 6k and astounding 8k resolution and is available for license to clients who want to avoid the cost and effort to capture the material on a case by case basis. Our work in tourism and central coast lifestyle just keeps on coming, and we’re proud to share it!
Drawn from our roots in California Lifestyle, we crafted this anthem for SLO Brew. The goal was to showcase their new canned beers for international distribution, and the California heart that goes into every drop. Enjoy!
Our highlight reel for 2016. This was a year of primarily Central Coast Lifestyle work for us. We had the amazing opportunity to represent our home city of San Luis Obispo, in the Award Winning ShareSLO Tourism Campaign, and our County Tourism group, Visit SLO County. We also sprinkled in some clips from our recent trip to the Ecuadorian Amazon, where we were lucky enough to document the indigenous Achuar tribe. All images were lensed by Director/Cinematographer Robin Chilton. Enjoy!
If you’ve ever dreamed of what it would be like to be alone in Yosemite Valley, there are two alternatives to make that dream a reality. The first would be to flash back to winter in the 1700’s, when the Native Miwok people would retreat to warmer pastures by way of the Merced River. The second will be to catch our scenic film ‘Miwok Winter’ when it releases in early 2018. This is a work in progress, so here’s the concept teaser for now. Enjoy!
Winner: BEST OF SHOW, California Coastal Addy Awards. We had the pleasure of working with Barnett Cox and Associates, and the San Luis Obispo Tourism and Business Improvement district to create this award winning destination film for the City we know and love, beautiful San Luis Obispo. Soundtrack and special appearance by local band Moonshiner Collective.
Back to Corporate roots, this is a video for the Home Page of MINDBODY Inc. MINDBODY was recognized by Outside Magazine as one of the top 50 Companies to work for in the United States. We can now vouch for that statistic, and we’re so proud and appreciative to have been a part of this project.
To produce an international recruitment film for one of the finest Universities in the western United States was an amazing experience. To produce this for our Alma Mater? It was an absolute honor. This film represents the beginning of our Central Coast Lifestyle binge, and we’re still going strong! Thank you Cal Poly!
You can look at a beautiful painting and appreciate in so many different ways. In February of 2014, Drew Davis allowed us to look a bit further. Enjoy this candid account of the process and passion behind paint on canvas.
In August, warmer waters off the California Coast bring giant schools of anchovies, and their predators close to shore. The feeding spectacle that unfolds is occasionally AWESOME. Being the most extreme El Nino year on record, this one was the largest sea bird feeding frenzy we had ever witnessed. A massive pack California Least Terns stole the show.
