Bertolt Brecht  |  German Dramatist



James Coleman II, Co-founder and Lead Director, has always had a camera in his possession. At eight years old he was using a VHS camcorder to script, direct and produce small films. His passion for filmmaking grew as time went on. He attended a career-technical high school, specifically their video production program. During the program he had the opportunity to work for a local production company, where for two years he produced video content for the City of Reno, independent television shows, award-winning documentaries and much more.

In 2016, with the help of his partner Elspeth Summers (Co-founder and Director), Tweaking Reality Studios was created. They began their company producing small documentaries about local Reno artists. They were captivated by the artists’ passion for creativity in the community. From there they built their business on the principle of consistently producing grounded, professional content for their clients. 

Since the beginning they have been fortunate to work with a wide variety of clients in a wide array of industries. Their clientele consists of University of Nevada Reno, Bishop Manogue High School, Nevada Museum of Art, Carson High School, Carson City Tourism Authority, Truckee Meadows Community College, Carson City Library, the State of Nevada, Nevada Momentum, St. Teresa School and Sierra Arts Foundation.
