Brauer Productions Hearts Indies

Founded in 1977, Brauer Productions, Inc. is currently in post-production on our tenth feature film, Fitful, which will premier in December of this year. Six of those features are small budget Indies we took all the way from script through post including assembling deliverables for worldwide TV release.

Whether you only need our core package, which includes our fully loaded 5-ton grip truck and equipment, DP, and Keys to enhance your team, or want the whole shebang including production management staff and post - if you have a script, financial backing, and the drive to make a movie, we want to partner with you. Brauer Productions is perfectly positioned to produce and support independent films in the $200,000 to $1,000,000 range.

Depending on your budget we can shoot 35mm, 16mm, Red and other HD formats. Our studio has an FCP post suite outfitted with all the bells and whistles and has handled cinematography and edit for all ten feature films including the two Jeff Daniels films “Supersucker” and “Escanaba in da Moonlight.”

The fact is that Brauer Productions has been making movies from our Traverse City, Michigan based studio for decades. While we appreciate it, we were here way before the film incentive was born. We just like to make good movies.

For more information about us and to view our demo reel visit Contact our producer Tracey Kukla-Aleshire today to see how we can support your project, 231-941-0850,
