We are visual producers with a focus on human rights, climate change and sustainable development. We only work with the non-profit sector.

Our skills cover design and delivery of media campaigns, documentary, investigative journalism, human rights research, creative writing, policy analysis, participatory video training and programme management. We believe that this distinctive mix sets us apart from regular agencies and production companies. We offer experience, creative excellence and total commitment to your project. 


Shape your communications for the people you want to reach. Be strategic in form, content, messaging and delivery platform.




Enrich your communications with immersive and interactive online experiences. Non-linear narrative can open up a subject, strengthen viewer engagement and provide different pathways to mobilisation.



Transform your communications with powerful imagery and real life stories. Record witness testimony, generate an evidence base, integrate documentary methods into monitoring and evaluation.



Train your staff to be skilled video gatherers. Empower your partners to be agents of their own advocacy and media representation. Build a sustainable, localised skill-base and strategic resource with participatory video.


  • We loved ERA Films commitment to the work, the quality of the products delivered, but most of all their passion about the message we wanted to convey. It was an empowering collaboration.
    Tina Lain, IUCN-NL
  • We are very proud of the way it showcases a complex project …The film has led to increased interest in the project and our work, and has led to the project being featured in a major new piece of digital marketing
    Shivonne Graham, AMREF
  • Ben has communicated our main messages through moving individual stories of working people and their families. It has been a pleasure working with him on a professional as well as a personal level. Within a clear and agreed framework, he has the respectful and yet decisive attitude it takes to drive a project to a success and deliver in time and to budget,
    Jeroen Beirnaert, International Trade Union Confederation
  • Working with ERA Films has been a positive experience from start to finish. The fact that they understood the culture and development issues involved meant that the footage truly depicted the real life experiences.
    Stina Dodds, Shared Interest International
  • ERA films provided us with an excellent service. They understood quickly what we required and what our key messages were. They were extremely easy to work with, accommodating and highly professional. We’re really pleased with the four films that they produced for us.
