Human-Interest Documentary Films

Eleven-time Emmy Award winning Visionalist Entertainment Productions was
established in 1997 by Executive Producer and Director Keith Famie (bio).
Keith created a series for various network-affiliate television stations based
on his adventurous cooking in exotic locations around the globe. Produced
both in short news format segments and hour-long documentaries, Famie
quickly developed his own unique style of film production.

Since these early years, Famie and his VEP team have produced a wide
range of primetime programs for broadcast on the NBC affiliates in Detroit
as well as PBS throughout Michigan.

Visionalist creates all their films with the same story-telling philosophy -
They want to make sure the audience walks away inspired, touched or educated.
