Sundog believes in the power of film to change the way we see the world, that’s why our founders, Sam Branson and Johnny Webb, started the company. Uncovering, exploring and starting conversations about the world we live in is what makes us tick.
We produce premium factual content with intelligent and accessible story-telling. Sundog is proud to bring new audiences to important subjects, regardless of the platform on which the story is told. The passion and commitment which we apply to our films is matched by our production values, ensuring an emotional punch that delivers real impact.
We also bring extraordinary talent to our projects to attract the biggest audiences – diverse voices that include Morgan Freeman, Brian Cox, Mary Portas and Rita Ray.
Our clients include the world’s leading broadcasters, platforms and brands – BBC, Channel 4, Channel 5, Google, Netflix, YouTube Red, National Geographic, Smithsonian Channel, NFL, Virgin Media and Jaguar Land Rover – and our content has been sold to every corner of the globe from New Zealand to Nepal, Poland to Papua New Guinea and Iceland to India.
Sundog’s work breaks new ground with new audiences. We create:
DOCUMENTARY FILMS AND SERIES THAT MOVE YOU: exemplified by the critically-acclaimed The Trouble with Dad, an extraordinary portrait of David Baddiel’s relationship with his father who suffers from a rare form of dementia – a film called “brutal, brave and sometimes very funny” by the press.
CONTENT THAT GETS NOTICED: such as #DeathPenaltyFail, which shone a new light on America’s broken system of capital punishment. Using various storytelling methods – an animated comedy, a testimony-driven documentary and a visceral reconstruction of what happens in an execution room – we started a global conversation about this taboo issue. A Lethal Injection, our reconstruction, garnered over 10 million views on YouTube alone.
BRAND-FUNDED STORYTELLING: including VOOM campaign offers entrepreneurs the chance to pitch their business ideas to Richard Branson. We produced a range of content, working with award-winning director Bruce Goodison and shot atop the snow-covered Swiss Alps with Richard Branson, to inspire businesses to apply.
WORK FEATURING THE WORLD’S BEST TALENT: such as multiple-award-winning broadcaster Brian Cox. In 21st Century Race for Space/Billionaire Space Club, Brian discovers how, in just under 100 years, we have gone from the first manned air flight to the very real prospect of privately-owned space tourism and exploration.
