Grace and Cary are a husband and wife team whose passion for photography and filmmaking extends to food, farming, and foraging. Together they co-founded GeoCore Films, which has evolved into GeoCore Creative, Inc. to pursue diverse ways of storytelling that encourage positive and profound change, build community and feed their selfish needs to make the world a better place.
We believe stories draw audiences in, capture their attention and provides a platform to introduce new ideas and opportunities. We want our audiences to not only remember but to have a lingering connection and feel the emotional tenor in our work.
GeoCore Creative, Inc. specializes in branding through storytelling via video, photography and print. We have combined our skills to form GeoCore Creative, Inc. to offer authentic visual storytelling fortified by a keen sense of strategic marketing, distribution and educational awareness.
GeoCore Creative, Inc. is a woman- and minority-owned business.
Grace began her film career in Vancouver, Canada where she moved through the production hierarchy from production assistant to production manager and then transferred to the art department (set design and props) in the late 90s before moving to Thomasville, North Carolina. From 2003 to 2010, she worked as the marketing director for a start-up law firm, which began with two attorneys and a staff of 5, overseeing television, radio, social media, digital media, direct mail and print advertising campaigns. By the time Grace left the law firm to start GeoCore Films, the law firm had out grown their leased space and moved into a newly bought building to house 5 attorneys and a supporting staff of 23.
Cary Kanoy began his filming career in a less traditional environment as an adventure videographer filming the wild waters of West Virginia and then eventually founded his own adventure travel company specializing in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands, and Guatemala.
Through his travel company Core Expeditions, Cary Kanoy worked as an international program field logistics consultant and videographer. He developed and supervised programs such as donor trips for non-governmental organizations, employee field orientation, local site assessments for new medical programs, medical missions to rural mountain and rainforest regions in Ecuador, and site logistics for swift water rescue courses in cloudforest and rainforest regions.
Cary Kanoy was a trained wilderness first responder instructor and WEMT for Landmark Learning and NOLS Wilderness Medicine (formerly Wilderness Medicine Institute).
