Welcome to the real world

We are a growing production team specialising in documentary films for brands and NGOs. As directors and producers, we’ve been making films, commercials and documentary TV series for UK and international audiences for more than 10 years.

Documentary storytelling requires a very different set of skills and approach to what most video producers know or understand. Brands rarely take on documentaries because of this. And that’s why we exist: to support ambitious organisations to voice their purpose in powerful ways through authentic storytelling.

Our Clients

We have worked with United Nations agencies, governments, broadcasters, and academic institutions across the UK, Europe, and Asia.

Our work has been broadcast on Sky History and BBC Earth as well as advocating for social and environmental change at European Parliament and the UN General Assembly. And in 2021 our original film The Scarecrows was nominated for best short documentary at The Grierson Awards, the most prestigious award in the British documentary industry.

Why branded documentary?

Brands and non-profits are taking ever greater steps to engage with their audiences and customers through meaningful content: educating, celebrating, and challenging the world as we know it. And documentary can help you do exactly that.

Documentary helps to communicate what you believe in, what you’re doing and where you’re going in the most genuine and compelling way. Documentary production also allows for flexible budgets and discreet crews without sacrificing story or aesthetics.

How we work

Our work with clients is driven by research. First, we look at what, how, and why you do what you do. Then we look at your industry: what is it thinking, what challenges is it facing, and where are you going within it?

Just as TV production companies pitch to broadcasters, we use this primary research to explore and pitch ideas to you before you’ve even spent a penny. Whether or not you go for exactly that idea doesn’t matter. It’s about getting a shared creative process going, digging deep and together identifying your best story.

Throughout the production process, we focus on creating a collaborative environment with you that gives us the best chance of capturing a story that is both candid and sincere.
