OUR 2022/23 PILOTS AND SERIES.
We are looking to develop our productions into cultural and heritage TV content. If you are from acquisitions and would like to be part of one our projects then get in touch and..... LET'S MAKE FILMS!
All of our pilots get developed in house at our sites in Hackney Wick or Leyton in London. They are made with love by our passionate filmmakers and with support this year from the Creative Enterprise Zone Grant. BigFaceArt is an official Mayor of London awardee for 2022. Our pitch was to roll out broadcast Netflix approved cameras to develop our cultural and heritage content on with the agenda to push our content towards TV broadcast and to help the arts and culture be more widely represented and shown on TV. We develop all our pilots and projects into online mini series using our new broadcast equipment; and all of our online pilot series are available for commission from broadcast acquisitions. If you are interested in developing any of our heritage content further with us, please get in touch, (contact details are on the contact page), and LETS MAKE FILMS!
