About Us

In 2014, we launched an interactive documentary project called {THE AND}.

The premise was simple: film an emotional conversation between two people as they asked intimate questions, and invite the viewer into their emotional space. Well, it took off. 55 million views later (and an Emmy, nbd), we decided to fully dedicate ourselves to the pursuit of documenting human connection in the digital age.

Six years later, we’ve filmed over 1000 honest and authentic conversations in 17 places around the world as we continue to collect (and reflect) upon the spectrum of human emotion through {THE AND} and {THE AND} Online, as we create space for vulnerability, openness, and deep listening through dialogue. But it doesn't end there.

Through many other exciting and immersive projects, we continue to explore the human experience set against the backdrop of a rapidly-changing world. Our mission is to create the world's first database of human emotion - a comprehensive and inclusive searchable resource that spans language, culture and class to focus solely on the universal experience of being human. We created our card game so that people could enjoy the unique experience of {THE AND} from anywhere in the world, as we encourage the amplification and illumination of human connection.

{THE AND} Card Games

We also launched {THE AND} card game as a way to bring {THE AND} experience home. With 199 questions per deck, the cards allow people to easily experience more meaningful connections from literally anywhere.

With eleven different relationship-specific editions (and many more in the works), sales from these cards allow us to develop even more interactive storytelling platforms, such as THE DIG (which garnered our second World Press Photo for Immersive Storytelling), THE WINDOW, and SENIOR ORIENTATION, as we are further explore the new frontier of relationships in this modern age
