OUR STORY

Founded in 2018 with an aim to revolutionize the world of factual filmmaking by combining the power of storytelling with the latest in cutting edge technology and the collective power of creative talent from all across the world, Mudskipper has managed to create a unique model of cross border collaborations.

A name inspired by the process of evolution itself. The humble Mudskipper has the ability to adapt both on land and in water, immortalized by Douglas Adams in his book Last Chance to See where he says- “I suddenly felt, well, terribly old as I watched a mudskipper hopping along with what now seemed to me like a wonderful sense of hopeless, boundless naive optimism. It had such a terribly, terribly, terribly long way to go. I hoped that if its descendant was sitting here on this beach in 350 million years’ time with a camera around its neck, it would feel that the journey had been worth it.”

Similarly, we are committed to this journey of a collective evolution for a better tomorrow through our stories.
