Bonfire Films of America began life in 1995 as a music video production company. In its first decade, Bonfire worked with a number of talented, young directors to produce iconic videos for blink-182, 311, Papa Roach, They Might Be Giants, Ben Folds Five, Incubus, the Connells, Edwyn Collins, Cake, Knapsack, Cypress Hill/Fugees, and many others.
In 2009, Bonfire partnered with OK Go to produce seven videos off of their Of the Blue Colour of the Sky album, including the Rube Goldberg-machine classic This Too Shall Pass and the Grammy-nominated All is Not Lost.
