What is Stratasfear?

Stratasfear Productions is a Toronto-based multimedia production house.

Our specialty is content.

We like:

  • learning new things
  • meeting interesting people who do interesting things
  • telling other people why these things are interesting

This is why we help BANDS, BRANDS, and BUSINESSES identify what makes them or their particular project unique, isolate their identifying tropes and themes, and develop an audio/visual representation of that to help reach potential audiences and customers; after all: the most important product you can sell... is yourself.

You spelled that wrong...

Names are always tricky business: band names are often already taken, films all start to sound like the same thing, and companies can skew too generic with no relation to the service or product they offer. A name should be memorable, but it also has to be unique (and you still might have to pay some guy in Utah a bunch of money to purchase the Twitter handle).

I've always been a huge fan of pulp, horror and science fiction – one of the ongoing tropes of these genres that I found most fascinating was the underlying fear of the future, or dread of things to come.

I decided to reflect this in the name "Stratasfear" (an obvious misspelling of stratosphere) as the idea of something being so advanced – beyond the leading-edge of development – that even those advancements just over the horizon in the future would be afraid of it: Strata's Fear.
