We think our commissioned films archive offers you an insight into the sort of work we help produce, (as well as being an entertaining and interesting watch!). You can get a taste of our commissioned films in the trailer below.

'Working with Exeter Phoenix to realise Shuttlecock was an amazing journey, and really shines a light on how important regional arts centres are, especially now. I’d urge every filmmaker to use and work with the arts venues close to them, as they can really push you to make your best work!” 

Tommy Gillard, director of our 2019 commission SHUTTLECOCK, which was awarded Best Short Film at the prestigious BFI London Film Festival 2020.
