The term "go-en" (ご縁) is a Japanese expression that refers to those seemingly serendipitous encounters that result in long and meaningful relationships.
It's a term that speaks to the mysterious and unexpected ways in which people cross paths and form deep and meaningful connections that can last a lifetime as if destiny has brought them together.
Goen Studios was founded with sincerity and respect upon this idea, whether between working with clients, or between a film and its audience, we want that connection to be long-lasting.
At Goen Studios, we are passionate about the power of film. Our mission is to inspire the world through cinematic storytelling experiences, that move people to action, spark new ideas, and leave a lasting impression.
We believe that the magic of film and video, from the big screen to pocket-size, is capable of connecting people across cultures, generations, and backgrounds; empowering people to take on new perspectives; allowing them to escape through emotionally compelling stories; and inspiring change for a better tomorrow.
Hey, Brad here. Director, videographer and owner of Goen Studios.
It's always been a dream of mine to create films that captivate and inspire audiences, in the same way that many great stories have captivated me. Goen Studios was made to be able to tell the stories that go missed, for both the big screen and small, and of local brands, to empower them to reach their audience.
Filmmaking and video content creation has taken me to many amazing places around the world and allowed me to access some great minds along the way, from Robert Kiyosaki (author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad), to Grant Morrison (renowned Scottish comic-book writer), to the local heroes with great businesses, and many more!
I can't wait to hear your story too and be able to watch it in cinematic form.
Brad D Cannon
