Vertigo Films never wanted to be just another production company. Founded in 2002 by Allan Niblo and James Richardson, it was set up to produce and market films with a difference. The company became synonymous with films which were deeply original, knew their audience and had production values that hugely belied their budgets.
These films include No.1 box office smash hits like STREETDANCE 3D and THE SWEENEY, the biggest independent UK film on DVD of all time, THE FOOTBALL FACTORY, cult classics such as BRONSON and ITS ALL GONE PETE TONG and original, genre defying hits such as MONSTERS.
The distribution arm of the company has won multiple awards for its innovative and eye catching marketing campaigns and trailers which helped grow audiences for films such as SPRINGBREAKERS, THE HUNT FOR THE WILDERPEOPLE, SNOWDEN and HAWKING to name a few.
Having challenged the film industry with its original films, it is now doing the same for Television.
The company’s first drama, an epic 9 part series, BRITANNIA, (for Sky and Amazon) has award winning Jez Butterworth writing for TV for the first time. Nick Love¹s first TV drama series, BULLETPROOF, stars Noel Clarke and Ashley Walters in an action cop show for Sky 1.
Vertigo also set up the successful post production company THE POST REPUBLIC based in Berlin and London and is a partner in the prestigious sales company PROTAGONIST PICTURES along with Film 4 and Ingenious Media.
Vertigo Films is delighted to be working in and being a part of such disruptive and exciting times in television.
