Independent Film Enterprise: G&S Productions

M20 worked with these guys at our Live in the Village event in November 2014, and they produced an excellent short video on the event – so we know they can deliver professional results for projects with social and creative purposes!

Here’s a little bit about them from one of the team Will Plastow.

Gravel & Sugar Productions is a new independent film production company serving Manchester’s creative community. Bringing together an international team of award winning and festival-shortlisted filmmakers we aim to be distinctive, collaborative and creative in every project we take on.

To put it simply, we work closely and creatively with our clients to see their vision through from conception through to delivery – be that a live music film for a band in the Northern Quarter or a street performance with a cast of a hundred for a University research project in Uganda (actual examples).

All members of our team have received filmmaking training to postgraduate level in addition to experience in professional videography and post-production. We’re passionate about making films both we and our clients can be proud to put their names to. Gravel & Sugar Productions specialise in live event and musical performance films, artistic music videos and documentary shorts.

Email or call us and we’ll talk about turning your ideas into reality.
