History
GNOMON Production is a Czech production company, based in Brno. We develop and produce fiction and documentary films since 2009. We cooperated on several television and cinema projects, eg. Accept, Cyril and Methodius, Dust of the Ground, Big as Brno, Return to the Red City.

We produce also commercials for companies, music videos and videos for non-profit organizations. We believe there is a story hidden behind every object, specific and yet universal. To find it, capture it and present it; that is our goal.
