Olive tree's Story

Rooted In Beirut, Olive Tree is a production company catering to Lebanon as well as the Middle East and North Africa MENA regions.
We are storytellers - by taking writing to a whole new level, we engage and entertain audiences with original content whether online or on the screen.
Our team specializes in branded content, helping you always tell the most relevant stories on whatever your project may be - series, film, commercial, or video.
We aim to collaborate with like-minded creative professionals who believe in the quality of their work as well as the innovation of their service.

Manifesto

Every story has a beginning, a middle and an end. We play with the tools. Experiment with styles and techniques. We have fun telling stories. We express our awe of life through filmmaking. Our spontaneity, we preserve it. And our respect towards each other bares no judgment. We celebrate nature and life. We draw emotional journeys to explore ourselves through our humanity. We entertain audiences. Engage them as we weave brand narratives.

Like characters we have needs. Creation. Originality is our nature. Collaboration. Driven by passion, we complete it with educated thinking. We experiment because we are part of a bigger experiment. We move people, because we are moved by them. And by our existence. Our goals? Our vision takes us forward. Innovations change us. We keep moving. We push when we can’t go on.

The plot. We’re in constant search of our identity. It is rooted in our culture but influenced by others. We remember where we come from but keep our wings open to travel everywhere. Even to outer space. We also have traits. Critical thinkers. Every problem has a solution. We remain fashionable. On trend. Sometimes we set trends. We are progressive. Agents of change. Our eyes are wide open to seek and celebrate beauty. Even when it’s flawed. Life is a lesson. The biggest teacher. We are eager to learn from it. Our flaws? We are honest in disagreement, adaptable in times of need. Rebels at heart. Dreamers. Our heads are in the clouds while we walk firmly on the ground.

Storytelling is practice. We see magic in its art. A craft. Writing is rewriting. Life. From darkness to light. Light to darkness. A cycle. Many stories telling one story. The climax. Conflict is story. We are peaceful by nature but bring out the big guns when needed. Music. Universal languages we know how to speak. Every hero deserves a journey, even the anti-hero. Every journey is a lesson. A transformation. The character’s arc. Every story needs a resolution. The end. Open your eyes.

We live in and with grace.
