What we do

We make films that serve a just cause. Our work is character-driven, emotional and meaningful.

Don’t take our word for it

“Kerrin and Pascale are utterly professional and above all a joy to work with. I would recommend them to anyone wanting to work with committed intelligent and insightful people who don’t require to be asked to take the initiative, and deliver high quality results.”

Jamie Telford, Director, Producer Langholm Stories. London

“Being a first for me, working in front of a camera was a scary thought. All until I came across a calm, professional set with Kerrin and Pascale managing each moment as it unfolded. I’m thrilled at the outcome of this film! It’s a powerful tool in our hands!”

“I was fortunate enough to work quite intensely with Pascale in 2014 on a multimedia project called Coughing Up For Gold, which investigated the problem of silicosis and TB in former gold miners.  She produced outstanding work – sensitively, beautifully shot, and richly conveying the poignancy and hardship of these miners’ situations. At all times she treated her interview subjects with respect and sensitivity, and beyond this brought a refreshingly can-do attitude to our practical challenges.”

“Meeting and working with Kerrin was one of the best things that came out of working on the Sun Exchange. I learned so much from her, and obviously, without her on board, we wouldn’t have had the beautiful finished product that we ended up with. Kerrin helped solve our trickiest visual moments on the infographic and brought a level of professionalism to the project that helped move things smoothly and swiftly along. I only hope I get the opportunity to work with her again in the future!”
