Nonfiction Unlimited is a commercial production company producing spots and branded with some of the most notable documentary directors on the planet.
We’re all about bringing the filmmaker’s creative talents to nonfiction and scripted projects alike and a holistic approach that informs the work from casting, to production, to post.
Our collective personality is unlike any other production company in the world. We began, in 1995, with one idea: a roster of elite award-winning documentary directors supported by an innovative production staff, formed in order to take a revolutionary approach to commercial documentary projects. In the years since, Nonfiction’s directors have created uniquely compelling commercials, complex branding campaigns, episodic series, branded content, narrative features and, of course, creative documentaries.
The filmmakers at Nonfiction are undisputedly some of the most respected documentary filmmakers in the world. And Nonfiction is the premiere production company bringing their considerable talents to projects for advertisers.
