About Twist:
Twist, a North American production company, was founded in 1997 by President Jim Geib. The company has been able to remain competitive in a global marketplace from offices in New York & Minneapolis. From its inception, Twist has been dedicated to a team model, which supports a directorial roster of diverse talents and skill levels. The team structure allows new talent to develop while experienced directors stay fresh. This provided an ideal environment for the launch of Twist's Content division, created to address project development and production for the variety of emerging needs -- from entertainment to educational. Working closely with the Commercial department and the Twist cadre of directors, this leg of the company features work for Target, General Mills and Apple. One of the notable projects developed by this division is an unprecedented HD/3D film entitled "Mars 3D,” in cooperation with NASA for the worldwide museum community. Twist also supports a New York-based staff sales model. The company’s team model encourages well-informed client care from project inception to completion with an integrated approach. The Twist brand is recognized the world over for its high-quality production value and client service.
