We make darkly comic films imbued with plenty of pathos and a splash of the surreal.
Our favourite stories centre around outsiders, underdogs, complex family dynamics and, of course, dysfunctional relationships.
We’re always looking for new projects to develop with like-minded writers and directors.
Amille graduated from the National Film and Television School with a diploma in Writing and Producing Comedy in 2020. The aim was to quit her job as a drug development scientist, but then the pandemic hit. Needless to say she has forcibly remained in employment but continues to write, produce and script edit. She’s always been fascinated by characters with sociopathic ambitions and definitely anything to do with death, which is honestly all she’ll talk about at your birthday party.
Amille has recently finished writing on a BBC Radio 4 comedy pilot and is currently developing a slate of films that basically involve a lot of trauma.
Dan is the more likeable and approachable of the two, with the crushed idealism of someone who at one point completed a Masters in International Peace and Security. He has almost a decade of experience working with major broadcasters and brands, producing and directing mostly documentaries for the big and small screen. He does all the budgets for Heretic despite the fact that Amille has 2.5 scientific degrees, because he enjoys it, not because he’s an absolute misogynist.
Dan is broadly hanging on by a thread after recently directing his second scripted short in the middle of a fuel crisis/pandemic.
