THE CRITICAL FILM STUDIO POWERED BY THE COLLECTIVE
Our mission: bridging the gap between Climate Corruption, Science
and Pop Culture.
We alert, inform, and uncover topics that Governments and Big Corporations don't want us, Worldwide Citizens, to be aware of.
At Brakcshaw, we bitterly swallow them and redigest them into relatable, accessible, widely spreadable stories.
With a foot in Pop Culture, the Zeitgeist, and another in Degrowth-related academic research, and grass-root movements, we are fluent at translating complex concepts.
We're here not for a sprint but for a marathon to reshape Pop Culture and ditch greed, individualism and overconsumption.
The Capitalist system we're in
is not the present and future we desire.
Welcome to the Capitalocene!
Human activities unarguably are the leading cause of the climate catastrophes and biodiversity breakdown we're currently going through. Though, not all human activities are equal, compare the CO2 emissions of private jets in the Global North vs. a Global South population consumption.
Growing the economy for the sake of profit and capital accumulation is only benefitting the richest. It does not address wealth inequalities, people's needs to live a decent life or take into account the planetary boundaries. This is nothing but progress.
Call us the trouble-maker of "business as usual".
Excellence towards each other and the planet.
Excellence dictates -how- we work and -with who- we want to work with.
You'll never find us working for a planet-destructive organization, like Coca-Cola, Nike, Shell or Shein.
The same goes for our collective: we all have admiration for each other's works and enjoy time off set.
We actually choose the people we want to work with and have a strict no-a$$hole policy. We never settle for the crumbs, only for the whole damn cake.
We are an independent film studio powered by
We are award-winning and renowned independent Film Directors, DOP, Writers, Researchers, Creatives, Activists, coming together to form crews for each of the film projects we work on.
We are strongly connected with partners like investigative journalists, IPCC researchers, activists, influencers.
As a diverse bunch, from different countries, social backgrounds and curiosity, we are united by our witty sense of humour.
our playground is Europe and beyond.
Wherever produced, our films are always either English-speaking first or English subtitled, for maximum spreadable impact.
We believe in
Mind-sticking metaphors, cold showers, dark humour, awkward silences, turning shrugged shoulders into actions... are some of our favourite chopsticks to narrate sharp stories. Find us crafting anti-capitalist stories as well as any form of power positions like colonialism, extractivism, sexism, racism, animal exploitation.
Fiction is our jam.
Short films, docu-fiction, campaigns, music videos... no matter the format, we make fiction! We believe it's the best way to tell highly relatable, unorthodox, electroshock stories.
As a production studio, we spend 50% of our time on our own film projects, 50% on commissioned ones.
