In the field

It’s harder than it seems. It requires getting out of the way of a good story and then realizing that story is actually about why you—and all of your colleagues—come to work every day.

Linus uses its over two decades of experience in documentary storytelling, led by Emmy-nominated Creative Director Joanna Rudnick, to bear witness to moments of grief, joy, passion, raw dedication, and triumph. The result is catalytic. It’s films that are cinematic, full-narrative experiences. 

The kind of films you watch on Netflix and HBO, with the same high-production values and narrative arcs, but applied to the most pressing stories in science and healthcare. Sometimes they require a few tissues and often get some laughs.

Introducing Catalytic Cinema™ from Linus. Bridging the gap between science and humanity. Every day.
