Who We Are
We are a production company based in Saudi Arabia focused on quality storytelling. Having produced the biggest Saudi film to date ‘Born a King’, we have the experience of working with foreign co-productions and continue to build an ecosystem for Film Production in Saudi Arabia. Our team's combined experience covers feature films, commercials, music videos, short films, live events, and new media content.
BORN A KING tells the extraordinary true story of 13 year old FAISAL, the younger son of the first King of Saudi Arabia, who in 1919 was sent on a diplomatic mission. In the frenetic post-WWI atmosphere, young FAISAL becomes the first Saudi Royal to visit the UK on a politically precarious trip lasting 5 months. FAISAL ultimately became the hugely popular King of Saudi Arabia (1964 - 1975), implementing modernization and reform.
