Big Picture Charity Films are the UK’s only Registered Charity that exists to support the work of the third sector through the production of films and visual media.
Formed in 2012, we have since worked with a wide and diverse range of charities, producing films for them to primarily use to either directly promote their services and work, or to celebrate their achievements. Our production team have worked in film and television for around 25 years, in locations across the world, producing diverse content for various market sectors. Big Picture Charity Films was born from a realisation that in today’s digital age, charities have a need to engage and communicate in a way that is relevant to society, yet very few have either the technical or financial resources to be able to do this effectively.
As part of our DNA, Big Picture believe that charities should be able to hold on to the vast majority of their funds and be able to use them in their projects. We had seen, on so many occasions, charities charged what we saw as excessive fees for film-making services and felt that there was something we could do to help. Thus, Big Picture Charity Films was formed. We undertake our own fundraising events throughout the year, which in turn allow us to charge far, far less than commercial film-making professionals, whilst still being able to deliver broadcast quality services to our clients. We have travelled extensively across the UK and Europe, working for various charities.
