We are a women-owned film production company. We span from Washington to Arizona to Colorado!


Carolyn Dean and Madelyn Kurpgeweit have established a collaborative presence in the field of

filmmaking, a partnership that originated during their early years and they have been friends for 16 years. Madelyn, having recently earned her Bachelor's in Filmmaking from the New York Film Academy, is complemented by Carolyn's notable role as the host of a local film festival. Their most recent achievement is the successful completion of the feature film "King Tara" which will be premiering in Colorado at the Historic Park Theatre. Presently, the duo is embarking on the pre-production phase for their upcoming project, "Lottie's Girl."

Gail Kurpgeweit, CEO of Pivot North Consulting

For several years, I've collaborated with Star of Magnolia and Middle Fork Films, producing commercials and video content for our CPG food products. Their exceptional professionalism and creativity have consistently delivered outstanding content, which we've strategically utilized across diverse media platforms.  What I have appreciated most about working with this team is their ability to take direction to stay on-brand, while bringing innovative ideas to keep our content vibrant, relevant and stop-the-scroll buzz-worthy.  Together, these companies bring fresh, young perspective with the knowledge and experience necessary to play on a national media platform.  It is truly impressive what they have been able to accomplish.  As my company continues to bring exceptional food products to market, Star of Magnolia and Middle Fork Films will play an integral part of our marketing and content creation strategy.
