MORE Productions is a creative content development and consulting firm that works in multiple sectors, including feature films (e.g. Silence, The Ticket), documentaries, short films, comic books, stage plays, concerts and live events, children's literature and impact campaigns. We are currently in post-production on a feature documentary called Clarkston; are presently producing allegorical comic series through Cave Pictures Publishing; have done impact campaigns for feature films such as The Great Gilly Hopkins (objective was to bring more families of faith and the broader faith community into foster care); and produced Babette's Feast off-Broadway last year. Additionally, MORE has provided consulting services around culture creation and impact and conducted research into Gen Z and how best to reach and mobilize that demographic.
THE Director: Tod Polson

Tod Polson received both his BFA and MFA from The California Institute of the Arts (Cal/Arts) under scholarship from the Walt Disney Co. His student film, Al Tudi Tuhak, won many awards including the Student Oscar. Between degrees, Tod apprenticed under the Oscar winning team of Chuck Jones, and Maurice Noble. Tod has worked extensively as a director, designer, and teacher, helping develop a variety of projects all over the world. Some of these projects include: the Emmy award winning El Tigre for Nickelodeon, the Oscar nominated feature The Secret of Kells, and the Golden Globe nominated, The Book Of Life.
