About Us

Opalite Media is a forward-thinking creative production agency built for a complex and ever-changing world. We understand the power of stories that convey feelings and deliver messages that stick. In a time when people are increasingly rejecting “hard-sell” communications, our work takes a people-centered approach to connecting with audiences through shared values and experiences.


We’re small by design, allowing for a personalized, dedicated, and hands-on approach to every project. We go above and beyond to leverage multimedia production to help solve complex, real-world challenges.
