The company began in 2012 as a sole proprietorship doing videography and short films in Buffalo, NY. In 2013, their no-budget short film, Scope of Practice, attracted many filmmakers in the local film community as well as the Buffalo and NYS film commissioners. Due to it’s success and immense local press coverage, several ties were created which enabled them to launch their first feature film, Dwelling, in 2014. During post-production for Dwelling, BeWILdered Media became an S-Corporation shifting it’s focus strictly to independent film and video. In 2016, Dwelling was picked up for distribution and released through Sony Pictures Home Entertainment in August 2017.
