Welcome to Workshy Films! We do things a bit differently here. We make films about people and ideas (big and small) with heart and meaning.
Our documentaries delve into everything from independence movements to mental health, from interesting quirks of geography to cinematic travelogues. If you enjoy our work, like and subscribe to our YouTube and social media channels.
We have sites in both London and Manchester.
Here at Workshy we don't limit ourselves to one genre. Where there's a story, we'll be there.
Our first film, Mercia Unchained, looks into the phenomenon of separatist groups through the lens of Independent Mercia, an organisation devoted to freedom for the English Midlands.
Our second film, Grin and Bear It looks at the relationship between adult ownership of soft toys and improved mental wellbeing.
Our third film, Magnum Opus is a short comedy about one man's race to produce a literary masterpiece.
We have a crack team of workshy professionals.
From our arty cinematographers to our down to earth sound crew, our small team are all experts in telling stories they care about with passion (and at least one of us has genuine professional camera training).
In the depths of the English Midlands, Independent Mercia, a campaign organisation, fights against the illegal control of the United Kingdom. Its members call for freedom for Mercia, a former Anglo-Saxon kingdom, which hasn't existed for almost 1000 years.
Can they free Birmingham from the oppression of Westminster? Can they rally the people of Stoke, Tamworth, Leek, Nottingham and Leicester to unshackle themselves from the Norman Yoke and bring pride back to the Midlands?
They're with us all through childhood, and then what? Studies have shown that around 44% of us Brits keep our teddy bears into our adult lives. For many they are a source of comfort and solace in times of trouble.
Grin and Bear It charts the experiences of three people and their bears. With the rise in mental health problems, especially among adolescents, can our furry friends go some way to making us feel better?
A procrastinator sits down to write the greatest work of literature the world has ever seen. Easy, right?
