About HAP


To create opportunities for artists from all backgrounds to showcase talent, gain exposure, and network while creating high quality low budget content for creatives and musicians.


Empower Creatives, Illuminate Talent: Striving to be the catalyst for creative revolution, we envision a world where every talented artist, regardless of budget, finds their spotlight. Together, we amplify voices, spark connections, and redefine the future of artistic expression.

"Are we still having fun?"-HAP Moto



We are committed to diversity and inclusion. We partner with MercyWorks in Syracuse to host summer interns. We strive to ensure that all are invited to partner with us, film with us, apply to work with us, and be HA-P with us!

We are also dedicated to giving people their first opportunities, learning on the job with us and/or failing and getting support to figure things out.

If you're interested in working with us, please see our contact page.


We are a proud rag tag team of interns and volunteer.

Working with the area's students and recent grads helps us give opportunities to young film makers to gain real world experience and add to their resumes while keeping our costs down. 

We love giving future film professionals their first experiences. 


You're welcome #rickrolled
