Princess Pictures is a film and television production company that has forged a reputation for producing projects with some of the most innovative talent in the country.
Princess looks toward new ideas, stories that haven’t been told or ways of telling stories that make audiences look at the world in a different manner. The company has already gained a powerful reputation in this area, having acted as a link between the vision of intensely creative talent and the practicality of distributors and networks.
Princess was started in 2003 by Laura Waters, an experienced producer with credits not only in current affairs and documentary television, but also entertainment and narrative comedy. Born in the United States, Waters trained and worked in Boston, London, Washington, DC and Los Angeles before settling in Australia. This unique history infuses Princess Pictures with a broad view of where ideas can fit within the creative and international spectrum.
Princess Pictures’ has a ‘quality vs. quantity’ philosophy toward ideas, developing fewer projects with more time, resources and energy. We are convinced that a well-developed idea supported by a bottomless pit of commitment will always find a home.
Because Princess loves these projects and the talent behind them, we have developed ways of protecting both the creative ideas and the people who are financing them. Acting as a bridge between these two very different parties but understanding that they both want the same thing – reaching an audience with an exciting new idea – is the driving force behind Princess Pictures.
I believe this company would be suitable for our mockumentary. In the past it has supported such series as 'summer heights high', a mockumentary by Chris lilley. similar to ours, this show combines the ridiculous with the everyday normalities, creating an even greater humour. We support their ideology to promote untold stories, highlighting the originality of our subject.
