Production Consultancy

John continues to produce and direct his own films but also works in collaboration with other producers as a consultant and/or executive producer.

DVD Monty Python Almost The TruthIt’s a service for :

* TV commissioning executives with too many projects to oversee and too little time to apply the critical eye that is needed at that crucial roughcut stage.

* Independent producers – perhaps struggling with a mass of material but no clear sense of the structure or how on earth to bring the film home on time and within budget !

* Distributors/investors – anxious whether the independent production team they have funded is experienced enough to handle a complex documentary project.

These are the kinds of people who have benefited from hiring John Edginton’s documentary production experience and his consultancy service.

John worked with Bill and Ben Productions and distributors Eagle Rock Entertainment as Production Consultant on the major IFC/BBC series : Monty Python – Almost the Truth. The Lawyer’s Cut.

John was the Production Consultant on the award-winning Freddie Mercury documentary, The Great Pretender
