Heretic Productions Heretic Productions

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 Jampa-Ngoen

Amille is a British/Thai writer from London, who graduated from the National Film and Television School with a diploma in Writing and Producing Comedy in 2020, where she was mentored by Naomi De Pear at Sister Pictures (This is going to Hurt, Landscapers, Chernobyl). Her graduate film "Saudade" won her a filmmaker bursary, which led to work on Sara Pascoe's "Out of her mind" (BBC) prior to graduation.

Amille has also written for BBC Radio 4's Drop the Dead Panda for which she was shortlisted as a finalist for the BBC Audio Drama Awards in 2022. Her second short "Pet Name" was released in 2022 and is currently screening at BIFA and BAFTA qualifying festivals.

Prior to working in film, she worked for over 10 years in drug development, as a scientist in the UK and abroad.

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 freelances as a script editor and is developing a slate of short and long-form projects.
