Their business is run out of the living room of Balogun’s Gottingen Street apartment in north-end Halifax.

He edits on a donated desktop computer. Hannebohm sits across the room in a comfortable cushioned chair doing news budgets and writing scripts on a laptop computer.

With donations from family and friends, the pair rents camera equipment as needed for video shoots.
