107 South started as an idea like most things. With Covid 19 at its height in the summer of 2020, Erik decided that there was an even playing field with everyone at home and it was time to make a dream a reality. When the idea was pitched to a group of friends, the most enthusiastic was Aaron. From there, the two intensely started working out the kinks from mission statements, to even creating their logo from scratch. When thinking of what to call themselves, they felt it was a no-brainer to go with that stretch of rural highway where they met. There’s only one way in and out of Cullowhee, and the guys quickly adopted the slogan “All Roads Lead Here” as their statement and purpose. At Western Carolina University, they not only learned their craft but also cultivated a mindset of approaching filmmaking with southern hospitality. They value the true things in life like friends, family, and the little things; and that’s what they set out to capture. Their goal is to create high-quality content while embracing their clients with the “mom and pop store” comfortability. For Erik and Aaron, the sky's the limit. They believe in taking on any opportunity that’s presented and giving nothing but their absolute best. They hope you embark on this journey with them!
