Who are we?

We (Ethan and Eli) met in freshman year of high school and quickly became close friends after making a fun and goofy short film series called "Blue Lightning". 8 years later, we decided to take our passion for filmmaking more seriously and start BLUESTEM. Now we help you make wedding, training, and commercial videos while also making our own short films. Best. Deal. Ever!
