Who we are
We're a Hereford-based production company and charity producing award-winning films and digital arts projects. Founded over 25 years ago by CEO Nic Millington, we have a reputation, locally and nationally, for telling powerful stories from unheard voices and nurturing creative talent.
Rural Media Charity works with communities, schools, groups and individuals to create issue-driven films, heritage and digital arts projects that raise awareness, influence change and celebrate rural life.
Rural Media Productions is the commercial arm of Rural Media. From music videos to commercial virals, from broadcast television to corporate films, we can bring your idea from concept to screen. We’ve already done exceptional work for the BBC, BFI, Channel 4, national trusts and foundations, the Welsh Assembly, local authorities, Hay Festival and more, and we’re now looking to expand our successful portfolio.
Wherever your content will be viewed – cinema, television, tablet, smartphone – we tell compelling stories to the highest production values, across all media platforms and our talented team operates out of the only dedicated professional production facility in Herefordshire (which you can hire, by the way). Income from production will be invested back into the Charity to ensure media participation and production continues to thrive in Herefordshire and beyond.
We can and do make a difference.
Even when our projects are finished, their legacy continues to have a positive and lasting impact.
Through our Charity projects people can:
- Engage with and gain a greater understanding of their communities
- Improve self-esteem and confidence
- Learn practical filmmaking and creative digital skills
- Share and tackle the problems of rural isolation
- Influence policy and help determine their own future
- Promote a better understanding of their culture, history and way of life
- Actively participate in cultural production
Productions shows that talent and skill exists in abundance in rural communities. You can get the most professional, most effective and most impactful media made outside the major cities.
