Flying Mile Films is a contemporary independent production studio founded by award-winning director Ben Lawrie.

We make engaging documentaries for premium brands and international broadcasters.

Our films have played live on Facebook and premiered worldwide on Amazon Prime.

Projects range from 30-second shorts for social media to documentary features for global TV broadcast.

First and foremost, we are exceptional visual storytellers – creators of smart, innovative content that will challenge assumptions and shape perceptions.


We come from backgrounds in primetime broadcast TV, producing and directing headline-grabbing, character-driven films, with audiences in the millions, for major channels like Discovery and the BBC.

Our broadcast heritage ensures that we work quickly and cost effectively, often much more so than traditional corporate production companies.

We are agile, collaborative and globally experienced, with a flexible structure that allows us to work direct-to-client or through an agency.

We manage everything from story development to distribution.

All our films have a premium broadcast TV documentary ‘feel’.  People – and their own personal stories – are at the heart of everything we do.

Please get in touch to find out how documentary-style filmmaking can engage and inspire your audience.
