Urban Tales is a full production services boutique. We nurture each project from development to completion. We develop the script, put together a solid production package, structure finance, hire cast and crew and oversee production through post-production. Based per project we can also secure sales agent or distribution. We do all of the above while keeping a physically responsible budget and maintaining our creative signature.
While we have in-house talent and work on developing our own materials, we are always on the lookout for new projects. We are open to co-productions in all genres.

“Unlike all the other art forms, film is able to seize and render the passage of time, to stop it, almost to possess it in infinity. I’d say that film is the sculpting of time.”
– Andrei Tarkovsky
