We are a small production studio established in 2019 by a group of friends who are passionate about film. Centered in Buffalo, New York, we participate in many local and international film festivals. We are always accepting applications for those interested in joining us on our journey!
YEET, DEFEAT, REPEAT
We're a group of 20- somethings that are very excited about film productions. We have a wide range of talents, from acting to special effects. We're always welcoming new people, because what's film without a production team?

The name "Aurora Orientem" was created originally in a moment of panic while registering for our first film festival.
The name means the dawn of the East or star of the East in Latin. We are based on the East Coast of the United States, and the name "Aurora" has special significance for many of our founding members. Our hometown, East Aurora, is featured in many of our films.
We used it, and the name stuck. Now, we proudly wear the name anytime we present a project.
