STIRRED, SHAKEN & AWAKENED
Off the Record (OTR) specialises in stories from people who live on the fringes of societies around the world. We like the gritty, the raw and the real.
Our work is character driven. It’s important to us that we take on diverse topics across the globe in real and honest ways. We want to offer genuine human connection throughout the viewing experience.
We’re extra passionate about storytelling with social impact potential, and we like to weave today’s top intersectional issues into our stories that entertain and inspire.
We tell said stories in docuseries, feature documentaries, shorts for NGOs, news pieces and 60 second Public Service Announcements.
While OTR works all around the world, we’re currently based in Afghanistan – the most incredible country in the world for making the stories that we love.
Stories that leave the audience stirred, shaken and awakened.
ENTERTAIN. STIMULATE. INSPIRE.
We create media that generates action.
