At Whalebone we like to tell stories that get under the skin of the lived human experience. We feel that documentary storytelling is at its best when it reaches across our planet’s many cultural, geographical, political and other divides, and works its magic in making the seemingly unrelatable, relatable to a vast range of audiences.
In all of our work – across charity, commercial and independent cinematic docs – we leverage documentary’s ability to communicate ideas, engender empathy and offer journeys into little understood worlds. We believe that the personal can often be the best way into the political, and that upclose micro stories breathe life and colour into the macro picture. In our commercial work we are diverse and responsive to briefs and can offer services across filmmaking, animation, photography and even audio. What characterises all of our work regardless of format, however, is always a thoughtful and considered approach, a strong artistic vision and emotionally taut storytelling that can move you from laughter to tears in one fell swoop.
