FILM & VIDEO PRODUCTION
BROADCAST. ONLINE. EVENTS. EXHIBITIONS.
Cornucopia is an independent production company that specialises in long- and short-form filmmaking for broadcast, online, events & exhibitions. Founded in 2000, our portfolio covers everything from documentaries, promos & performances, to case studies & courses. To date, we’ve produced hundreds of hours of programming for broadcast, online, events and exhibitions, collaborating with cultural and educational organisations of all sizes.
We have the skillset to manage multi-dimensional commissions, and the flexibility to respond to smaller-scale projects with a fast turnaround. We work with the most up-to-date camera formats and workflows to ensure that our filmmaking stays relevant, affordable and consistently high quality. At the heart of what we do is compelling story-telling and beautiful image making, and a trusted roster of in-house expertise and freelance talent. Take a look at what our clients say about us here

Cornucopia has been filming in hundreds of schools around the world since 2000. We make documentaries, classroom resources and videos to support online learning and CPD. Our audiences are policy-makers, school leaders, teachers and students, and our partners include everyone from global organisations and broadcast TV to small charitable foundations. Telling stories about teaching & learning is in our DNA.
We develop and produce factual films that have strong narratives based around people and places. Recent work has included a pair of films for Tate and a raft of short form documentaries for online channel 451life.com together with long form documentary films for exhibition screenings and events. These are contemporary stories told through beautiful imagery, natural sounds and the subject's own words.
We love making promotional videos with corporate & non-profit clients who have a passion for what they do. From reinventing the author profile to capturing the energy of a live event, our promos tell an engaging story while getting the message across. Sometimes that requires fast editing, graphics and music. Sometimes it is gentler. We can work to tight briefs or from initial ideas and always like a challenge.
Cornucopia was founded through a collaboration between a documentary film maker and a theatre producer back in the year 2000. So we have always had an affinity with performance. Our work includes feature length films of major staged productions in front of a live audience, in depth exploration of rehearsal processes, short documentaries, EPKs and TV programmes. We think the stage on screen (or the screen on stage) always presents exciting opportunities for artistic collaboration.
The principle behind our Ambient Video approach is to take long, single, locked-off shots and allow the scene to develop in front of the camera. Decisions are taken about season, time of day, subject, precise location and composition, choice of lens, and camera setup, to achieve the desired effect with minimal editing. The same care and attention is taken over the accompanying soundscape. The intention is to create truly immersive experiences - a moving art form for many different locations and audiences. On screens or projected, they reward attention or they can set the tone subliminally.
