Want to make a movie?
We’re a film production company, focused on creating purposeful films, made by talented directors. We have committed ourselves to contribute towards a greener film industry. An exciting endeavor today, a necessary self-evidence tomorrow.
Just as the Flemish Cartographer Gerardus Mercator - who pioneered with a new way of projecting the world onto a canvas - we too have shifted our perspective in the content that we make for the digital canvas of today.
Not only is it the sole origin of our true passion, culture brings people together. It enhances our quality of life and has the astonishing power of creating a story for the world we live in. We are co-writing the story of that world, together with artists and performers alike.
The planet will forever be the most beautiful film set ever built. Because we’re looking forward to many more years of filming in the Holocene, we focus on working together with projects and organizations that are actively involved in contributing towards a green transition.
No sustainable world without thriving communities. No thriving communities without individuals living life towards their full potential. Only when all plants get the light & water they need, the garden will be healthy. We focus on telling human stories: small in context, big in heart.
Mercator.tv was founded, strange as it may sound, on a plane above the African continent. On the way back of a film adventure in Gambia, we took a deep breath, 10.000 meters above ground, and started questioning our ways of working. We haven’t stopped doing that ever since.
With different backgrounds in the Belgian film industry, we connected through a shared search for meaning. Above all, we desired a sense of purpose while losing ourselves in doing what we love most. Making film.
We are on a mission to build a socially responsible company without compromising on our urge for adventure and creative expression.
We honestly believe that a passion for the craft and a love for people and planet can go hand in hand.
We are aware that there is still a lot to learn, and that the challenges are grand. But trial and error will be our guide.
We don’t know all the answers, and we never will, but the least we can do is try!
