Film & TV
Independent film production
Featurebank started making films in 2011 and got into broadcast the following year with a short for Motors TV.
We’ve worked with incredible people to produce and promote great factual content, including Channel 4’s award-winning investigative current affairs programme, Dispatches, acclaimed feature docs We Are Many and Radio Waves, and experimental short Supernatural8.
“Melody is the best, a rare mix of boundless energy and positivity. She can make the seemingly impossible possible, and has the charm to calm allsorts – the eccentric, the executive and the prima donna.”
Bob Hickey, Director of Radio Waves and 12:34
Featurebank has organised a wide array of successful events, from press conferences to film screenings and benefit concerts
Event Production Award
We were very proud to run children’s charity The Flying Seagull Project’s fundraiser at London’s Union Chapel, which won the Special Recognition prize at the 2017 Event Production Awards.
Curated by Ed Harcourt, it featured Carl Barât of The Libertines, Colin Sell, Kathryn Williams, Lock, Simon Munnery, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, The Magic Numbers and Tom McRae.
In a wonderful finale, Charlotte Church lead a spine-tingling rendition of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah.
The 1,000-strong audience played their full part and many more watched live on Facebook and Twitter.
“We couldn’t have asked for more deserving winners, picked by our esteemed and diverse panel of judges.”
Duncan Siegle, Event Director, Event Production Awards
Featurebank was originally created as a vehicle for bold investigative journalism
15+ years later, this ethos underpins everything we do. Our md Neil Kennett is one of the UK’s leading automotive journalists, with prestigious credits on tv, online and in print.
Following an overwhelming response to his 2018 article “Autonomous now: the shift to self-driving”, he launched Carsofthefuture.co.uk to provides news and views about driverless vehicles in the UK.
“Neil is a great journalist with an in-depth knowledge of the motor industry. He was invaluable to the Dispatches investigation – tenacious, creative and thoroughly likeable.”
George Waldrum, Series Producer, ITN Productions
