Truth is stranger than fiction
Art is the lie that enables us to realize the truth
Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known
The cure for boredom is curiosity, there is no cure for curiosity
Times change but storytelling remains the same. While opportunities for enjoying audiovisual content are blossoming and becoming mobile, there’s more demand for bigger and better image and sound quality at home. Our conviction is that compelling, inventive, creative, cinematic storytelling, and excellent broadcast journalism are more in demand and more needed than ever, whatever the platform, wherever you are.
Quince Media was founded in 2014 to provide inspiring drama and documentary, filmed around the world by our experienced team of journalists and filmmakers, and our wider network of talented storytellers across a broad range of cultures and geographical spaces.
The company draws on the experience and passions of its core team and their dreams – to make thought provoking television, documentary films in the best traditions of that craft, entertaining life-enhancing popular television, and to explore new and innovative forms of visual storytelling with emerging technologies.
