Beach House Pictures can be involved in a co-production in any number of ways, from a co-financing arrangement in which partners provide partial funding and split production duties, to more complex arrangements that involve joint creative control over projects. Our co-production partners can include broadcasters, distributors, independent producers, multinational companies or other production companies.
Beach House Pictures is equally adept at producing corporate films as we are at producing international television shows. Our successful corporate track record is proof of that claim. Clients include Microsoft, Nokia, ING Private Banking, NEC and the LTA.
