Sundog is a world-class, multi-award-winning storyteller in Film and Television. We make engaging and imaginative films that make people feel something. We believe that emotion is the power behind our work – it is the most memorable and persuasive way to tell a story and can change minds, win hearts, and inspire action.

As documentary filmmakers, we know how to find, cast, and film with brave and exciting people from all over the world. We make the television that people talk about at work the next day, real stories that stick with them, that inform the way they view their environment, that surprise, educate, and inspire – and we do it for big brands and charities too.

We work with our community of critically-acclaimed Directors, Hollywood A-Listers and Britain’s best-loved presenters to craft beautiful and original films that bring authentic experiences to the screen.

In a world where brands have to work extra hard to create deeper engagement and build stronger relationships with their customers, bold, brilliant, and compelling content is crucial.

We created Sundog to change the way people see the world. We believe that change begins by evoking emotion, and starting conversations about stories that matter.

This video contains images that some viewers may find offensive. A painstaking reconstruction of a real-time execution by lethal injection that highlights some of the very specific issues relating to the USA’s preferred execution method. Using CCTV footage, authentic set design and a script based on real life events, the reality of a lethal injection is heightened to uncomfortable levels.*

*This video is a dramatized execution and features fictional characters.

#DeathPenaltyFail

Meet Anthony ‘Ray’ Hinton, a man who spent 30 years on Alabama’s death row. Ray was innocent. #DeathPenaltyFail explores a very human story of loss, and unpicks the devastating impact that the death penalty can have. But Ray’s story is not entirely unique, we learn that there are many others who have suffered the consequences of this flawed system. A total of 156 people have been exonerated from death row in the U.S. The question is: How many innocent people have been executed?

#DeathPenaltyFail

A fast paced ride through all of the facts and stats that you need to know to be armed for a debate on this issue. Despite its dark humour and irreverent tone, a human presence is maintained in the storytelling. The stick-man inmate drags us through the reality of the death penalty, and debunks some of the common assumptions. It’s intentionally provocative, reminding those watching that ultimately this is about the taking of a human life.

This cartoon is a co-production between Sundog Pictures and animation studio Flickerlab and is designed for the undecided. No matter what your politics, the problems within the system are broken beyond repair.

#DeathPenaltyFail

Pat Monks, a proud Texan Republican, meets a number of conservatives who have first-hand experience of the death penalty process. Pat meets Ron Briggs, who was involved in bringing back the Death Penalty in California in 1977; Mimi Kelle, whose brother was brutally murdered in Nebraska; Governor Mark White who signed off on the executions of 19 men; and also Alfred ‘Dewayne’ Brown, the latest innocent man to be exonerated in Texas.

Unlike liberal arguments that we’re more used to hearing on this issue, we re-examine the facts. Whether it be the cost implications, the lack of closure it delivers to victims’ families, or the inaccuracy of the system – their testimony is explosive and unwavering.

#DeathPenaltyFail

Ever since the night of the 23rd of June 2016 and the EU Referendum result, we’ve been walking around in a daze, wondering what’s going to happen – to the country, to our businesses, to our families – and how we go about picking ourselves up and carrying on. We want to know what it is to make things better and we want someone to have the answers.

 

Sir Richard Branson has thought endlessly about what he can do next and now he’s reaching out to small businesses all over the country to try to find the answers to how we can kick start the British economy again. Sir Richard used to be a struggling business owner; now he’s the big guy, he wants to know what he can do to help out the small guys. Because he firmly believes that small businesses are the lifeblood of the British economy.

 

Sir Richard wants to unleash everyone’s potential, and to make small businesses the entrepreneurs of the future. A key element of running a small business is their broadband, and what is absolutely critical is to give every single business in Britain more speed than they need. The above film ends with a game-changing offer of help – and a challenge for others to step up to the mark.

We produced a headline three-minute film, five short films for online, and a 60s and 30s TVC currently showing on C4 and More4.

The competition launched on Monday 22nd March.

With unrivalled access to the inner workings of the UK’s largest car manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover, we produced a 15-minute documentary telling the story of the design, development, and engineering of the brand new Range Rover Velar. Our film accompanied the global launch of the vehicle at events worldwide and online, and preceded our full-length in-depth documentary to be released in the summer of 2017. The clip above features the testing of the door handles for the new Range Rover Velar in the climatic ice chamber. The film is narrated by Damian Lewis.

To celebrate the new partnership between Jaguar Land Rover and Virgin Galactic, we were asked to make four inspirational mini documentaries featuring key members of the two companies – as well as a special launch film for the New York Motor Show.
