Ensemble Films
Welcome to Ensemble Films
We tell stories using film, photography, writing and training to help organizations achieve their goals. We believe that visual stories will help your stakeholders engage more deeply with your core values and mission. This enables and enriches your partnerships and impact in your community. We are driven by a passion for telling authentic, personal stories and believe that every organization has untold stories that the world needs to hear. 
Storytelling in film has taken us to Vietnam, China, Philippines, India, Indonesia, Cambodia, Mongolia, Nepal, Bangladesh, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, Malaysia, Thailand and Myanmar. 

We offer a complete service package from scripting, planning, shooting and editing to post production and publication. 
Tell a compelling story and make a difference.
Paul Zetter 
Director, Ensemble Films

Working in Southeast Asia since 1998 and telling stories with Ensemble Films since 2003.  Paul has built a unique range of experiences, networks and portfolios with people and organizations in the development, philanthropic and cultural sectors.

At the heart of his storytelling approach is trust and empathy building to enable people to tell their story in front of the lens.

Your community is made up of many different people who all have a story to tell. What story does your organization need to tell so they have a voice and the community continues to thrive?
