Making Films that Matter



Katalyst Productions is a London-based film & television news & documentary production company founded by Emmy award-winning Producer/Director Sharron Ward.

We believe in “Making Films that Matter,” and we’re committed to making unique well-authored films about the human spirit, inspiring individuals, organisations and people who make a difference in today’s world.  We have an ability to gain exclusive and intimate access through our network of contacts which gives us a more nuanced understanding of complex issues currently in the headlines, particularly in the Arab world. We focus particularly on the real story behind the headlines and often on unreported and under-reported issues and stories around the globe. Our focus is predominantly on gender based violence, violence against women, human rights, social justice, current affairs and democratic abuses around the world, and we make independent short and long form documentary films, as well as feature length documentary films from an inside perspective.

We produce observational international feature-length and short form documentaries, self-shooting mostly on DSLR, as well as working on more contemporary popular factual documentary formats for the UK & international market. We also make campaigning films PSAs and documentaries for NGOs, the UN, Brands, Government bodies and the Third Sector.

With our extensive experience in Producing/Directing, Filming, Investigative Journalism, Television Commercial Directing & Promo Producing, we are well equipped to make heart breaking, creative, noisy, innovative films that get noticed and have an impact globally.

You can see some of our work on the Katalyst Youtube Channel or on Vimeo.  For news updates please see the Katalyst Blog.
