We create intimate short films (and some longer documentaries) to help you communicate your story.
Our specialty is in communicating often complex issues to stakeholders, ultimately through putting faces and stories to the issues at hand.
Gingerwink was set up in 2008 by Georgie Weedon.

More recently we have produced a 30 part series for BBC Arts about the Belarus Free Theatre.
