The Farnham Film Company produces fine content for screens of all sizes. Learn more about bespoke productions and production services.

We started out, surprisingly enough, in Farnham, near London, and formed the company in 1985 to produce international television programming. The company is owned and run by Ian Lewis and Melloney Roffe.

We have produced or co-produced series shown by most of the UK’s main broadcasters, and a number of digital channels, and several of our programmes have won awards.

Highlights include discovering, developing, and writing scripts for the worldwide success Mona the Vampire, a 65 x half-hour animation series, a large-scale drama-doc on the ITV network, The Chef's Apprentice, and smaller scale animation from the vastly popular Gumdrop books.

More recently we have been involved in the production of several low-budget feature films, and more similar projects are on the way.

We also produced a long-running Internet TV food series featuring top chefs and restaurants, coolcucumber tv (all in broadcast standard HD).
