About us

We make beautiful films to reveal the untold stories of remarkable people across the world. We throw ourselves into the heart the action, immersing ourselves into cultures, communities and human rights movements across the globe. We do this with the sensitivity and care the stories and those telling them deserve.

From persecution in Pakistan to discovering Zambian rock and roll to wheelchair users embarking on a mission to conquer the Swiss Alps, New Take Films pushes the boundaries of documentary film making to create positive change within society. From shoot, to final edit - we can oversee as much or as little as is needed to make the film as impactful as it should be.

New Take films was launched by James Dann in 2015 from Manchester, UK. New Take operates across the UK and globally for indie productions and broadcast commissions.
