Blazing Griffin’s film department is about making fun movies that people want to watch. Stories that have some heart and some brains and that most of all, you’ll enjoy watching. We’re all about action, adventure, science fiction and a bit of humour. And we don’t want the stories to stop when the credits roll. You should be able jump on your computer or pick up a comic and stay in that world as long as you want.
We’re also keen on using new technology to its fullest capabilities, and making big-looking movies for sensible budgets. Our first movie and full slate will be announced towards the end of the year. Watch this space.

We think there are some incredibly talented people out there who aren't yet well known. We want to find them and work with them to make great films.
Using some outside funding, our own money and a bit of crowd-funding, we help to develop writers and directors we believe in, all the way from initial ideas to shorts right up to features.
So far, of the four shorts we've worked on, one got a TV option and two have feature film deals with well respected industry players (in addition to ourselves), and we commissioned a feature script of another.
