One of our close collaborators is acclaimed documentary maker Paul Duane. We produced his award-winning, critically praised documentaries While You Live, Shine, following an eccentric musicologist’s quest for the oldest music in the western world, and Welcome to the Dark Ages, about KLF pop stars-turned artists Bill Drummond and Jimmy Cauty’s epic project to build a pyramid from the ashes of dead Britons. We also did the grading, sound mix and delivery for Best Before Death, following two years of Bill Drummond’s curious 12-year world tour.
Nick Franco directed and co-produced Before the Big Bang, a documentary episode where some of the world’s greatest scientific minds – Stephen Hawking, James Hartle and Thomas Hertog – explore the possible origins of the known universe. We’ll soon be embarking on a new documentary about quantum wave theory, so watch this space.
We also recently produced, edited and finished SatNav, a black comedy written, directed and filmed by renowned cinematographer Eugene O’Connor, who has worked with top music artists including Paul McCartney, Lady Gaga, Prince, Madonna and U2.
We produced a trilogy of animated music videos for reggae stars Toots and the Maytals, featuring Ziggy Marley and Ringo Starr, for Zak Starkey’s Trojan Jamaica label, and we’ve produced or created art films for acclaimed artists such as Kalliopi Lemos and Annette Holzwarth.
As a committed creative partner for agencies and brands, we work closely with you to create and deliver outstanding commercial, digital and branding content across all media and creative technology platforms.
We’re collaborating with Burning Bridges to bring you a new streaming website for art documentaries. We’re working hard to bring a lot more films up on the website so we’d love it if you’d keep an eye on it. Some of the films we produced and worked on are also available to stream right now.
