About Mudskipper

ABOUT MUDSKIPPER

Mudskipper Labs is a premium factual studio dedicated to producing films that create global impact. We believe in the incredible power of storytelling and are driven to bring about transformative change in human consciousness through the Epic stories we tell.

We believe there is nothing like the power of cinema to inform and inspire people across the world. By combining dramatic storytelling with larger than life visuals and epic character journeys, we have managed to successfully create a new genre in factual films that are both meaningful and entertaining.

With a strong belief that great stories resonate universally, we are rooted in the tales of our land, its wildlife, its people and are passionate about taking these untold stories to the world. Through our films, we touch upon not just social and environmental issues but raise questions about our collective future.

We work on large scale, immersive and experiential films. Our expertise lies in a wide network across the globe, thorough research processes, access to the latest filming technology and A-listed creative talent. We believe in diving deep into our subjects and providing never-seen-before perspectives with a hope of inspiring our audience to bring about real change.

WHY MUDSKIPPER?

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. I hoped that it might have a clearer understanding of itself with the world it lived in.”

Similarly, we are committed to this journey of a collective evolution where we have a better understanding of our world through our stories.
