We are a UK-based film production company that produces re-visionary, subversive, and transformative audiovisual works.

We are artists, activists, storytellers, esotericists, and educators devoted to the practice of occultural production, which, of course, is nothing more than the quite literal: production of occulture—a particular and distinct form of cultural production.

Our mission is the continuous re-vision of ourselves and the cultures that we are embedded in. To give ourselves new eyes/I's to see and empower others to do the same.

​If you would like to work with us or have a story you want us to help you share, we would love to hear from you!

Our mission

01

Entertain.

Everything begins with our desire to produce beautiful, intellectually-stimulating, affective, and captivating content that audiences will love to watch.
02

Enchant.

Magic in its earliest form is often referred to as 'the art.' I believe this is completely literal. I believe that magic is art and that art, […] is literally magic.
—Alan Moore

All Art is Magick.
—Aleister Crowley

03

Educate.

This production company emerged directly from a PhD research project, and our Creative Director, Cavan McLaughlin, is a Senior Lecturer in Media, Communication & Culture and Media Production.
04

Empower.

Progressive values of inclusivity and diversity have always been central to our work. So too has the democratisation of power. We believe in empowering people, and ensuring all voices are heard.

What actually is occulture?

Occulture is a word that was inevitable. ⟦…⟧ At any given moment our sensory environment is whispering to us, telling us hidden stories, revealing subliminal connections. This concealed dialogue between every level of popular cultural forms and magical conclusions is what we named ‘occulture.’
Genesis P-Orridge, In: Abrahamsson’s Occulture: The Unseen Forces That Drive Culture Forward

Occulture is a complex concept, which is very tricky to succinctly define. The two most important places to start looking for more information are the life and work of Genesis P-Orridge, who is widely accepted as having coined the term, and Christopher Partridge, who introduced the term into the academy. Hopefully, when (our Creative Director) Cavan McLaughlin’s PhD on ‘Occultural Production’ is completed, he will be able to widely publish works that will add to the discourse on occulture. For a bit of an overview of the concept of occulture, here is a talk Cavan gave at the appropriately entitled Occulture Conference, in Berlin, 2018.
