The Whisper Group announces today it has invested in Moonshine Features, a new production company specialising in cinematic, scripted and non-scripted formats for domestic and international TV.
Founded and run by award-winning Creative Directors Michelle Crowther and Mike Reilly, Moonshine Features is built on over thirty years’ experience and focuses on creating content that ‘opens doors into worlds you never thought existed’.
Its directors have worked with some of the biggest names in entertainment, such as Michael Sheen, Helena Bonham Carter and Micky Flanagan, and produced a range of successful, non-scripted prime-time shows such as Billy Connolly's Route 66 and Billy Connolly's Made In Scotland, Micky Flanagan's Detour De France, Tate Britain's Great Art Walks and the critically acclaimed Richard E. Grant’s Hotel Secrets, amongst many others.
Moonshine Features was drawn to The Whisper Group by its strong purpose and established infrastructure, as well as its growing reach and presence in the industry.
Michelle said: "Whisper’s core values were a huge draw for us in joining them; their drive and ambition are infectious to be a part of. They've been hugely supportive and the partnership provides a great opportunity to learn from one another.
Mike added: "We set up Moonshine Features to bring real cinematic storytelling to our talent-led, factual and arts slate and partnering with Whisper really allows us to be ambitious, as we realise our next stable of commissions. The possibilities going forward feel limitless."
As part of The Whisper Group, Moonshine Features joins unscripted entertainment specialist East Media and motion graphics design agency Chapter 3 Graphics, which have both grown significantly since joining The Whisper Group last year.
Sunil Patel Whisper CEO commented: “Mike and Michelle have both demonstrated many times in their careers a real skill for working with incredible on-screen talent to tell engaging, cinematic stories. Having them onboard as Moonshine Features brings more significant experience to the Group and strengthens our overall offering. It also boosts our growing presence in non-scripted and scripted entertainment. We look forward to supporting Moonshine as needed, as they develop and grow.”
