About Us

One mission:
To create high-end TV and film productions that
inspire and empower people through entertainment.



Two passions:
 To uplift the UK regions with 'glocal' productions,
and give voice to female-led stories using female-rich teams. 

Our Story

We are an independent production company founded by actor and writer, Sarah Preston.

After being involved in the industry for nearly thirty years, and experiencing first hand the need for more diverse and female-led projects – both in terms of roles for actors as well as opportunities for behind-the-camera talent – Sarah felt compelled to redress the balance. It is our focus, here at Bamboo, to develop and create high-end TV and film projects ​that aspire to do just that.

 

We also believe very strongly in bringing attention to the regions throughout the UK, in particular, the North East. The majority of the team are from the area and we are pleased to say we will be relocating the company from London to Newcastle.

 

With the huge initiative this year to develop a sustainable creative industry in the North East, and uplift the area, we are proud to be a part of that forward drive with our first show – a TV serial thriller set in Newcastle – which is due to head into pre-production this year.

 

Alongside this, as part of our paying it forward philosophy, Bamboo will be working with the local colleges and government to implement an apprenticeship/mentorship programme to help both new and returning creative talent living in the North East.

 

2022 promises to be a significant year and we all look forward to lift-off and expanding our already amazing team.
