Embankment is one of the world’s premiere independents providing scripted and unscripted entertainment to distribution platforms throughout over 70 countries globally.
Founded in 2012 by Tim Haslam and Hugo Grumbar, Embankment specialises in global commercialization of high-quality, award-winning filmed entertainment.
British producer Kevin Loader joined Embankment in 2022, further contributing to the Company’s industry-leading pedigree.
Together they share a career roster of over 350 productions made for global distribution in cinema and all platforms, as well as catalogue management of over 1000 titles. The 3 principals combined have close to 100 years of experience in film.
Embankment is highly skilled in the assessment of market opportunities and the assembly of pre-sales and independent financing of productions in a manner that allows filmmakers to maintain ownership in their films.
To describe the “uniqueness” of its skills, Embankment adopted the moniker of “Converter”, meaning Embankment converts high-quality and ambitious IP from development to production, through to delivery to distribution platforms and global audiences.
Effective and consistent ‘Conversion’ requires a complex set of highly developed skills. Embankment provides those skills with individually tailored solutions for each project.
Embankment’s rate of conversion is over 95%; when the company decides to proceed with an opportunity, filmmaking talent and international distributors can rely upon successful greenlight to production, completion and delivery.
Embankment’s creative expertise includes co-developing and talent packaging with filmmakers, of scripted and unscripted, fiction and factual entertainment for targeted commercial audiences throughout the world.
The company provides filmmakers, international distributors, global distribution platforms and broadcasters, first class global marketing and technical delivery.
Embankment is a team of energetic and international executives, all empowered, multi-disciplined, proactive and innovative.
Each Embankment executive is a highly ‘storied’ Converter and shares a genuine passion for entertainment media.
Embankment is inspired by “storytelling”, the combined brilliance of filmmakers and market-driven distribution, and by delivering high-quality entertainment to consumers.
