Literally Films was founded to specialise in creative documentaries for both the UK and the international market. The company is currently in production of two feature-length films: THE DIVIDE and LONDON SYMPHONY. 

In 2015 a new production company, Disobedient Films, was launched to produce interactive and experiential films. Our first film is THE LONDON RECRUITS for the V&A. Disobedient will be strongly aligned with Literally Films.
