About Us

Wild Dog Films is a pack of battle-hardened filmmakers actively looking to support and develop co-production projects. 

We specialise in producing a brand of dramatic, comedic and socially conscious video content.

From concept through production and post, we work with agencies, production companies and individuals to produce films, commercials, branded promotional videos and documentaries.

We like to think that we sit on the fringe of film production, there is mainstream and there is us. 

We are currently looking to collaborate with talented people to help support and develop their projects.
