Bow River Films is a brand new production company specialising in long and short form branded content.
At the heart of all our content is story and the heart of any good story is a good character. Take Lauren, for example. In 2013 she tried to row across the Atlantic Ocean. She spent 96 days at sea and got to within 270 miles of land before the rudder fell off her boat and she ran out of food. Undeterred, she came back in 2015 and 'smashed it' - breaking the record for the fastest female crossing.
At Bow River Films we particularly love adventure. So if it's outdoors, celebrates landscape and involves inspiring characters, then we want to be part of it.
Simon Tucker, MD Bow River Films.
Bow River Films was set up last year by Simon Tucker, a television producer with over 25 years broadcast production experience in the UK and overseas across a wide range of programming from documentary to factual entertainment, reality to branded content. Simon’s UK credits include major primetime shows such as I’m A Celebrity, Pop Idol, Survivor, Lad’s Army for ITV and Bring Back…… for C4. He also specialises in localising international formats through his Russian venture Mir Reality (www.mirreality.ru) where he has produced shows such as Dragon’s Den, Next Top Model, MasterChef and Top Gear.
Within the realm of branded content Simon cut his teeth working with BAT in Malaysia where he produced local TV series Golden Dreams. He has subsequently worked with the likes of Diageo, Nike, Skype, Nissan, Proctor & Gamble and OLX - creating original formats and/or integrating products in existing shows.
Simon set up Bow River Films to bring his story telling expertise to the world of branded content because at the heart of every brand there should be a story that excites, inspires and engages.
