|WELCOME TO ALCHEMY FILMS
Alchemy Films produces documentaries for the international broadcast markets as well as film festivals and educational fields. Our clients include National Geographic International, National Geographic US and International, Discovery, PBS and ARTE.
As filmmakers, we often find our documentary stories at the intersection between nature and culture and we are known for forging ahead under our own steam with stories that have caught our eye and captured our imagination. We have a love for heroes and visionaries, as well as anti-heroes and underdogs. From the beginning of every project we are thinking beyond broadcast to the outreach and social media potential of our projects, in particular considering how each documentary will connect the audience with the film’s subject. We invite crowd funding into our projects with as much passion as we do broadcast partnerships.
