The Unique Longship Approach

Unique Approach


Longship Films produces highly engaging and consumable feature films through a process we call ‘Seat of the Pants Filmmaking’.

This approach is based on a the combination of our experience with indie filmmaking and lean start-ups. Independent filmmaking is all about the story and the experience. We bring human stories to the screen. Lean start-up is a methodology which allows teams to focus on value producing activities, and not waste time and effort. Longship Films uses lean filmmaking tactics to create and market wonderful human stories.
