WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
Filming with Trevor Nelson for Self Portrait UK 14-19 (C4)
Media19 is an innovative digital media company with extensive experience of producing award winning factual programming for network and regional television in many genres including arts, history, observational documentary and education. We also produce multi-media projects with charities, organisations and communities who need to engage and work alonside their own user groups to present their ideas, issues and experiences on important issues.
We are a producer of highly successful cross-platform large scale public participation projects that engage with contemporary ideas about our identity, society and culture, producing work that enables, provokes, engages and informs.
We combine production experience for broadcast, online and new media platforms with project, event and exhibition management.

Using digital filmmaking, photography, visual arts and writing, we involve people in a creative process to produce their own media content for use on the web, television, mobiles, in conferences, exhibitions or print, often as part of local or national debates, campaigns or consultation. They produce work about the things that really matter in their lives; their experiences, challenges, hopes, fears, expectations and aspirations.
