We have a wealth of experience in broadcast and in building relationships with non-governmental organisations involved in ground breaking environmental and human rights issues globally. This and our relative size enable Handcrafted Films to develop stories accurately for in-depth programming.
Formed in 2006, by Paul Redman (director & camera) and Tim Lewis (producer & sound), Handcrafted Films have worked in many different and challenging locations around the world. Whether filming indigenous forest dwelling communities or logging companies in the equatorial rainforests, ethnic Burmese refugees along the Thai-Burma Border or amongst the student activists of Amnesty UK we endeavour to document with integrity, accuracy and creativity.
Our logo is based on the signature of some of the oldest known artists, our pre-historic cave painting cousins. When they finished a work of art they would place their hand on a surface and spit red ochre to create an impression. A unique handcrafted signature that stands the test of time. We would like all our work to have the timeless quality of these early paintings. Our work should be a benchmark for what life was like in our time arranged into classic, good strong stories.
We hope our stories show human kind to be full of inspiration and endlessly fascinating.
