Founded in December 2018 Skipyard Productions is an independent production company based in the North East. We are developing a diverse portfolio of impactful, engaging, entertaining and inspiring film and TV projects that reflect the pivotal societal and environmental issues of our time.
Our mission is to harness the power of film and television to create "must see" content that raises awareness of key issues, generates a conversation around them and ultimately contributes to positive change.
Skipyard can provide creative talent with unique access to scientists, environmental groups and policy makers - and seeks to build a group of changemakers to conceive, develop and produce stories for positive change.
The UN’s Global Goals for Sustainable Development are a key touchstone for Skipyard’s projects. The company is a BAFTA albert affiliate
