Rule of 3 makes commercials and documentaries about
real people doing amazing things.
We shine a light on true stories that move and inspire. We take a personal approach to our productions, gaining the trust of our subjects and presenting their stories in their own words. Our work has taken us from Appalachia to Detroit to Louisiana Bayous and beyond.
