In 2012, a group of friends—all filmmakers, storytellers, and artists—led by X Vallez started a production company in a small garage in Mandaluyong. Guided by the teachings and storytelling philosophy of the late National Artist for Film Marilou Diaz-Abaya, Overmind grew into a production outfit known for its emphasis on the power of story and for nurturing creative environments for creativity to thrive.

Overmind has now evolved into a storytelling company. We create stories, we help tell stories, and we teach how to tell stories. We believe that storytelling is a key strategic tool for organizations. This is why we strive to develop story and storytelling-based products and services in the hopes of unlocking the power of story in bringing out an organization’s competitive advantage.

Change the World, One Story at a Time. This is the summary of our beliefs, values, and philosophy. With our team of storytellers from various fields—music, theatre, visual arts and design, film and digital arts, and even history and education—we commit to providing humanistic and holistic solutions not just to your communication needs but to your storytelling needs.
