Meet The Gnar Gnar Honeys

Today we’d like to introduce you to The Gnar Gnar Honeys.

Please kick things off with some background for our readers.
The Gnar Gnar Honeys began as a group of friends who love surfing, skating and doing anything and everything gnarly. Within a few weeks of hanging out in Venice, we learned we all work in creative fields as filmmakers, photographers, producers, art directors and everything in between. As women in media and athletes ourselves, we often talked about the gap in action sports content and the female representation we wanted to see. Morning surfs turned into weekend trips and we started to compile a whole reel of footage –– visuals and stories we’d been looking for our whole lives. We realized we could create the change we want to see, together. You can find everything we’ve done so far at thegnargnarhoneys.com.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Although The Gnar Gnar Honeys started as a side hustle, we have quickly grown over the past year. We all work 9-5 jobs and carve out time after work or on the weekends to make every project happen, often with little to no budget. In the beginning, we had to get creative with our resources until we landed a paid gig. Fast forward to present day, we now have director representation on a roster for branded and commercial content. We’re looking forward to what we can accomplish with more women in 2020!

Please tell us more about your work. What do you guys do? What do you specialize in? What sets you apart from competition?
The Gnar Gnar Honeys are a collective of creators based in Los Angeles. Our mission is to show diversity and female representation behind and in front of the lens. We function as a production company, where we produce, direct, shoot and edit original content from start to finish in-house.

All of our productions focus on amplifying women in front of the camera, and what sets us apart is our emphasis hiring and connecting women behind the scenes too. We believe we can present more authentic images of women in media if we create a space where we are also the ones shooting. Together, we can keep working towards building a strong, inclusive network that is competitive with other creatives for hire in a male-dominated industry.
