We specialise in producing highly-crafted documentaries around subjects other production companies may not tackle. Whatever the film, we always ensure that story-telling is at its heart.
For the past 12 months we’ve been working hard on a commission from CBBC. The Racing Set is a 5-part series following 4 young racing drivers as they compete in the Ginetta Junior championships. We document the highs and lows of this exciting sport as brother and sister team Ollie and Jamie race against best friends James and Harry. But who will be crowned winner of The Racing Set? Catch it on iPlayer here.
In 2013 we made a documentary for CBBC’s prestigious series ‘My Life.’ Breaking Free tells the story of Ruben, Harley and Nicole who are three very different twelve year olds, with one very big thing in common. They all have a dream and they won’t let anything stand in the way of it – especially something as unimportant as having Down’s Syndrome. Having been wrapped up in cotton wool by their parents since they were born, we follow these three extraordinary children over the summer that will change their lives. Breaking Free had an amazing reception, and received nominations for both a BAFTA and PRIX JEUNESSE award.
Our BBC Two documentary Are You Having A Laugh: TV and Disability, attracted over 2 million viewers and won a Royal Television Society award. Narrated by David Walliams, it featured a host of celebrities and comedians including Stephen Merchant, Ben Miller, Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson, Jimmy Tarbuck and many more.
We have also recently produced six short films for BBC Inside Out London. The first investigated claims that London would be able to provide suitable hotel accommodation for disabled people during the Paralympics. Including hidden camera footage and challenging interviews with London’s top politicians, the film brought a fresh, youthful take to a current affairs investigation. The second film focussed on the technology available to Paralympic athletes enabling them to be the best they can be. Our very own Paul Carter was fitted with his own pair of prosthetic ‘blades’ to see for himself if they really do turn people into Paralympic athletes. (Spoiler: they don’t).
