about

about limbo films

The name Limbo may sound like we have commitment issues, but nothing could be further from the truth! Our name was actually inspired by the dance, since we bend over backwards for every client to create the most effective, memorable and striking video communications possible.

True to our roots and core capabilities, we are a video production company pure and simple. Not an agency hybrid, digital virtual vortex or any other combination of new age terms. We are Filmmakers.

We truly love what do, which is creating & producing all types of modern digital media; Broadcast Commercials, Video Web Content, Corporate Videos, Documentary and Narrative Films. Our Producers and Directors are passionate about delivering the highest quality digital content no matter a given productions challenges.

Based in the creative hotbed known as Portland, Oregon and established by award winning Director/Cinematographer Gary Nolton in 1992, Limbo Films is constantly shooting fresh videos for clients all across the United States. We always deliver a well orchestrated, efficient production while making sure it’s a fun journey every time!

Gary Nolton

Director, D/P

Our founding Director/D.P. has done it all, but specializes in Lifestyle/Sports/Americana. Detail oriented, fast and perpetually upbeat, Gary is a treat to work with. Also an award-winning photographer, you can see his still work here.

Anders Osterballe

Anders Osterballe

Director

Anders is a Danish-American who’e European sensibilities are perfectly mixed with a unique wit. He’s also often at work on indy film projects and has a wonderful calm authority on set.

Guy Baker

Guy Baker

Director

Guy has 9 years experience as an editor & sound designer here in Portland, but is a relative new-comer as a Director. We are excited to have him join Limbo and know his fresh point of view will be well tempered by all those years of client relationship experience. In just 2 short years Guy has directed 2 noted Short Films and several broadcast commercials, the best of which you can see right here!

you’ll love working with us

  • Limbo listens and works hard to achieve our creative vision. We know that they will bring ideas to the table, are flexible on set to make great things happen and will see the project through to the last bit of finishing if need be. They have made us look very good to our clients.

    CRAIG OPFER - CREATIVE DIRECTOR - MAGNETO BRAND ADVERTISING / PORTLAND
  • Working with Limbo Films is always a wonderful experience. The team is buttoned up from a production standpoint and creatively, the work is always stunning.

    EMILY BARROW - BROADCAST PRODUCER - ZIMMERMAN ADVERTISING / FT. LAUDERDALE
  • No matter what the project, Limbo adds excitement to our idea, finds ways to knock down roadblocks, and gives it their own creative spin to make it the best it can be. That’s why we’ve done dozens of projects together over the years!

    TINA TACKETT - EXECUTIVE CREATIVE DIRECTOR-LOOMIS ADVERTISING / DALLAS
  • We have been working with Limbo Films for several years across many assignments. The team consistently delivers and exceeds our creative vision. Gary is a true talent who is passionate, collaborative and always gives 110%.

    LAUREN FLEMMING - EXECUTIVE CREATIVE DIRECTOR - EPSILON / CHICAGO
  • When placing a creative concept in the hands another, you must have complete trust in their ability not just to execute upon it, but to truly bring it to life. This is why I have turned to Limbo Films for my most important projects over the last 20 years. They don’t simply meet expectations, they exceed them. Every time.

    GARY FULKERSON - PARTNER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR, DVA ADVERTISING & PUBLIC RELATIONS IN BEND, OREGON
  • I can’t say enough about my time with Limbo Films, during the 3 spot campaign production of MicroSoft’s launch of their new operating system (MS365).  With our aggressive schedule, and no real margins for error, I thought it best to work with Limbo throughout the production, in order to keep us as flexible/efficient/true to the creative.  It was one of the best production decisions I’ve made, because NOT only did we produce such GREAT work (on time, and in budget), but we had an AWESOME time as well.
