Our story

Our Mission

We started TRACTION to utilize our greatest asset, Action, to propel our creativity and collaborate with artists and filmmakers to produce high-quality, engaging, and entertaining content regardless of genre.

Our Story

What started out as a passion became an obsession, which quickly became a necessity.  Outside of the normal things — family, friends, food, etc. — movies & television were the mountaintop. The summit of everything.  Since we were kids, they have monopolized our lives. They helped us explain the world, they made us laugh, they made us cry, they brought us together, sometimes divided, allowed us to escape when needed, and most importantly—they entertained. 

Film Production

We're creating an inclusive library of films & television that invoke those very same reactions we had as children fresh off a Friday night Blockbuster haul. Those laughs. Those tears. Those scares. Those late night debates that you remember for a lifetime. It's what we do best.

Where it started


Jason Tamasco and Zak Kristofek formed TRACTION in 2021. With over 20 combined years in the industry, they wanted to continue pursuing creative projects that elevated all genres and share stories told by artists that the world should know.
