About Brooklyn

PLACES WE'VE BEEN

Watch what happens when we go to town.

How people think of a place is less tangible, but more important than just about anything else.

OUR STORY

First and Main is a street corner in nearly every town. And it’s a film company, founded by two friends.

PARTNER / PRODUCER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR

It all started in a giant convertible Cadillac, rolling across the country on the Mother Road.

CHRIS ELISARA

PARTNER / PRODUCER & PROJECT MANAGER

I was a “free-range kid” growing up in New Zealand with a walking range of about 3 miles, a biking range of about 5 miles, and a bus range of about 15 miles to downtown. Today’s kids are as flightless as a Kiwi bird. Not cool!
