Flying Saucer Media, LLC. is a web-based media production house based in Durham, NC, with operations anywhere in the world. We create top-tier web content, commercial video, documentaries and informational media.


Flying Saucer is quality on time and on-budget. With over two decades experience creating compelling content for television, film and the web, Flying Saucer brings expertise, finesse and wonder to the creative process, opening eyes and elevating ideas. Our extensive and varied production experience means never having to guess. Our budgets and estimates draw on decades of award-winning production design experience across all media and a record of finishing and shipping an array of content types.


A boutique production house, we take a small number of outside projects each year and treat each one like our own. Our rates are reasonable and comprehensive. You pay for our time, not for extras. Our best creative effort and commitment to excellence comes free.


Our creations explore the humanity behind big ideas, and the passion behind products. More than just entertainment, our content connects audiences to creators with compassion for the subjects and understanding of complicated concepts. We believe people have an infinite interest in stories about other people, especially those who do great things.
