District Bureau, in partnership with Cool Red Star Pictures, wrapped up filming on its short film, "Towed," in Los Angeles in May, 2015. Written by director Grant Janes and producer Tonya Agurto, the film has already shown in a number of Oscar-qualifying film festivals and has been picked up for distribution by MagnetFilm.

Things We Do
We code. We film. We animate. We design. We write. We craft messages and we tell stories. We connect with people. And we solve problems. Above all, we make sure our clients stand out in a dynamic and rapidly-evolving world.
District Bureau comprises a group of dedicated freelance designers, UI/UX experts, coders, animators and directors - all pursuing whip-smart digital content on behalf of its many clients.
High and Low Tech
Sure, we have all of the digital tools at our disposal. But sometimes the best tools are nothing more than a .99¢ pen and a piece of paper. You have something to say. Our job is to help you say it.
Left Brain & Right Brain
We're not sure if we actually believe the left brain/right brain theory. It might be a myth, like the fact that you can't train a cat to high-five. But as a creative metaphor it sums up District Bureau's approach wonderfully.
