Visual storytelling, in the form of multimedia documentary films, requires the fusion of photography, film, music, sound, storytelling and words to create a compelling and moving narrative.

In Altamar, we believe our strength is our team and through combining our individual, specialised abilities we are able to develop creative visual narratives.We work closely with NGO’s, companies and individuals to create both short and full feature productions that are visually powerful, with a meaningful storyline that transports the message that is to be conveyed.We offer to manage the entire film production process: from developing a concept and in depth research, through to filming and post-production.

We also offer once-off consulting services, focusing on specific aspects of projects in their different stages of production. This could be building a multimedia trailer, concept development and project pitch.

Our services include:

  • Film production
  • Film Direction
  • Photography
  • Script writing, building storyboard and creating narrative
  • Writing project proposals and developing project concepts
  • Grant applications
  • Music and sound design
  • Multimedia production
  • Postproduction and editing of content
