About Us

Originally an independent film production company specialising in creating narratives with young people, we found ourselves being drawn more and more into commercial film making and educational workshops.

We found that in order to survive in what has become a fiercely competitive marketplace we needed to redefine who we are and what we do. What we realised was everything we did came back to the same thing:

STORY

Narrative is at the heart of what we do. We’re storytellers, and we’d love to help you share YOUR story.

Commedia

Commedia dell’arte is a 16th Century Italian art form which remained popular until the 18th Century.

Traditionally a troupe of actors would travel from town to town performing popular stories using a variety of stock characters.

The plays would often use nonsensical language and were portrayed in a very stylised way. People were familiar with the different characters which helped to propel the narrative.

The mixture of music, comedy (particularly farce), improvisation, social and cultural references and archetypal characters created a performance style that was accessible by both young and old and from all sections of society. Indeed, the traditional English Pantomime actually uses many of the original commedia dell’arte conventions.
