We are passionate creators of
documentary film.

With documentary film, Magic Kumquat Productions believes in telling stories that engage, inspire, and move viewers. Our goal is to cultivate inclusive, curiosity-driven work -- particularly focusing on conservation films involving nature and wildlife, history films, and biography. Our documentary Longleaf Forever was awarded Best North America Short at the Wildlife Conservation Film Festival, and one of our team, Laura Albritton, recently won a Suncoast EMMY as writer on a feature length, public television documentary film. The "kumquat" in our name derives from Kumquat Avenue, where we once lived in Coconut Grove, Florida, in a community with many artists, filmmakers, designers, and writers. We added the word "magic," because we believe that there's something magical that happens when creativity and innovation are coupled with diligence and hard work.
