British indie incubator Greenbird Media has bought into another UK producer, as it grows its portfolio of investments.
Greenbird has taken a stake in Flicker Pictures, which Colleen Flynn and Nick Underhill have founded. The company already has investments in eleven companies, including Kalel Productions, Top Hat Productions and Big Light Productions.
Flynn was previously KEO Films’ creative director, while Underhill ran the prodco’s digital division as managing director.
Flicker will aim to create factual programming for 16-34s, and branded content for the kikes of Yahoo, Marriott and TKMaxx.
“Colleen and Nick are exceptionally strong creative talents, with an extraordinary track record of developing some of the biggest talk-about series on television. Combine that with their very strong branded content experience for global brands, and they are quite the force to be reckoned with,” said Greenbird’s joint managing director, Jamie Munro.
“Whether producing content for broadcasters or our creative input and production values are the same – to deliver great content for viewers to engage and entertain in equal measure,” said Flynn.
