Revealing the humanity behind headlines 

Honeypot Productions is a women owned and operated production company. Our documentaries change the narrative behind global issues through visually stunning, intimate, character-driven storytelling. We foster conversations of growth, compassion, and understanding in our world.  


We prioritize hiring female identified crew and staff from diverse backgrounds. Stories by women told by women.


Rae Ceretto and Kelly Scott founded Honeypot Productions in 2020. Seeking Asylum is an expansion of their award winning short doc, We Do Not Live Here, which was featured in Rolling Stone Magazine. Seeking Asylum is both Rae and Kelly’s first feature length film.
