5Point Mission

5Point Film is built on five guiding principles: Respect, Commitment, Humility, Purpose and Balance. We believe these same principles also form the foundation for individuals who lead lives of adventure and connect all of us who share an elemental passion to explore and expand our boundaries. 

Respect – For each other, for the environment, for the experience and for the knowledge we inherit from those who inspire and teach us. 

Commitment – To overcome fear and give ourselves completely to the challenge at hand while leading a vital existence and never allowing ourselves to become complacent. 

Humility – To assume the courage and the discipline to listen to our intuition and not our egos, always mindful of our place in the natural order. 

Purpose – To muster the motivation and conviction necessary to pursue our highest aspirations in the face of adversity. 

Balance – To maintain our focus and energy in life, in nature, and on the journeys we undertake while things we cannot control shift around us. 


We believe that communities are made better when their people pursue adventure and intentionally live their own best story. Our mission is to ignite personal and communal adventure of all kinds through the experience of sharing meaningful stories.
