Hi,

Welcome to Auteur Film Productions UK Ltd; we are an indie film production company (originally Films First Productions) founded by Sean Mukherjee & Neil Mukherjee). Our company is relatively new where both Sean and I further our steps in film-making and creative story-making.

Meet Neil Mukherjee

I'm Neil Mukherjee and I work on script-writing, pre-production as well as being involved in directing and cinematography and am also producing and co-producing a series of projects. I am a trained actor and have appeared in a number of our films. I am currently represented by BMA Artists. 

​Meet Sean Mukherjee

Hi, I'm Sean. I trained in Digital Filmmaking at SAE Institute, Oxford, the UK and I am continuing my training with Richmond American International University in London from 2021. I will continue to work in my production company whilst completing my studies. We have been making films together since moving to Oxford from Greater London in 2016/2017.

We both have a keen interest to work with artistic talents and freelance crew from all backgrounds. We are also involved in working internationally.

 

I work with my younger brother, Neil at Auteur Film Productions UK Ltd, as a Producer, Director, and as Director of Photography. The very first film I directed under our UK indie company was 'Dilemma' which won awards at the Calcutta Cult Film Festival in 2020 and at L'age d'Or International Arthouse Film Festival and our film was also nominated for the Golden Fox Awards in 2021.

In our auteuristic films, we take an artistic look into films and have a great sense of ownership and responsibility in making great stories of interest and significance for a contemporary as well as for an inter-generational diverse audience. 

 

The Work We Do:​

Together we give a unique edge to film-making by blending youthful exuberance with retro artistry. We are keen to take on project requests from clients as freelance operatives and we seek to work with clients, professionals and artists who have a story to tell and share through their individual presence, artistic take and with collaborative teamwork.

 

If you have a project in mind, contact us on our contact page and we would be happy to send you a quote within 3 working days.

Meet Our Film Production Apprentices - Introducing Joanna (In her own words):

Hello, my name is Joanna Alty and I am one of the apprentices at Auteur Film Productions UK Ltd. since November 2021. My love for film began from a very young age; I have a huge passion for a whole range of cinema, and I am particularly a fan of the works of Christopher Nolan. After learning more about the film-making process from taking Film Studies at school, plus learning the art in-depth using resources at home, I’ve honed a meticulous and critical eye for film and have expanded my theoretical skills. My main interest lies in directing, as I would love to have free reign of the creative process one, and hope to contribute to the industry with a visually striking motion picture one day.

 

I was a part of the BFI Film Academy in 2016, run through Film Oxford, where I was the director of my group’s short film: “Leave”. This was screened at Pinewood Studios in a graduation-style ceremony. I also took a Theatre Directing course, run by James Farrell, at the Oxford Playhouse in 2018, where I learned even more about the craft of directing. In my spare time, I enjoy script-writing – I have several that I’m working on, ranging from shorts to feature-lengths.

 

Since starting at Auteur Film Productions, we’ve been working on the development of Mountains of Glory: both its TV Film version (“Mountains of Glory - Snow Leopards of Spiti Valley”) and its feature film (“Mountains of Glory – A Himalayan Tale”). The film outlines the dangers of poaching on snow leopards: the human impact which is propelling their endangerment. I am very much a fan of supporting environmental causes, so this prospect within the narrative is one that affects me emotionally, and is something I believe is important to share on a grand scale. The process of developing these towards the production stages has been fascinating so far, working with script alterations and looking into potential cast, crew and businesses to work with on these; I’m learning more about the business side of film.  I look forward to further exploring the realms of independent film-making as I continue on in my role here.

Meet Our Film Production Apprentices - Introducing Lola (In her own words):

Hi everyone! My name is Lola Creed. I am an apprentice working for Auteur Film Productions UK Ltd.

 

From a young age, I have always loved learning about the film industry and what goes into making a film.

 

I studied Media Studies at school achieving a Distinction Star at Level 2, to then go on to complete a year of college in Creative Film/Media Studies. During these years, I have gained experience in a variation of pre-production, production, and post-production skills. This consists of casting knowledge, treatments, finding and identifying correct and appropriate

props for production, set design etc. I gained plenty of experience with editing techniques using Adobe Premiere Pro and experimenting with different shot types I captured on set, providing a variation of shots for the editor.

 

At the moment, our team are working on two PG/Universal animated productions: A short film, ‘Mountains of Glory (The Snow Leopards of Spitti Valley)’ and a feature film, ‘Mountains of Glory (a Himalayan Tale)’. As my first big production, this is something I am excited to dive into as we have a strong narrative and an amazing perception of the lives of snow leopards.  The feature film takes place after the short animation where you will follow one of our characters, Devi with her storytelling of her encounters with the snow leopards. The narrative follows Devi’s encounters with snow leopards, and how it has changed her life for the better as well as for the snow leopards which leads them towards trusting Devi as a human girl who has built a bond with them.

 

As previously mentioned, this a PG/Universal animated film so our primary target audience is therefore going to be children. This may help to educate young lives on climate issues as well as other environmental problems that the world is trying to solve.

 

I hope you look forward to these productions by Auteur Film Productions UK Ltd.

 

Lola Creed.

 

 

Our productions require the support of cultural organisations, enthusiastic entrepreneurs and interested clients seeking to get a film project done, we also collaborate with film and TV charities who are keen to work with us in financing and supporting our films as key stakeholders with a positive approach towards film-making.

Thank you,

Sincerely Yours,

Neil Mukherjee & Sean Mukherjee
