Stories are our lifeblood.

They allow us to feel and share in the experiences of other people. They enable us to learn and grow, and see things anew. Powerful and memorable stories are what we’re known for.

Our slate of factual and fiction projects is held together by our determination to pay attention to the world. We’re interested in the human condition. That means delighting in all manner of stories from unknown characters to famous folk. Our work spans genre and form. We tell stories with compassion and curiosity.

Our work has played around the world for all the major broadcasters, BBC, National Geographic, PBS, Disney+, Discovery, CBC, ARTE, ABC and SBS, and has been showcased at prestigious film festivals, including, Sundance Film Festival, Cannes Film Festival, London Film Festival.
