We are a production company based in Manchester, England.
Blue Shoes Productions creates innovative digital content for organisations that are implementing social and cultural change. Drawing on a background that combines historical research with filmmaking, we are well experienced in delivering meticulously-crafted narratives and enthralling visual content.
Much of our work attempts to illustrate the fountain of artistic wealth found in the North West of England. We attempt to disseminate the unique tales and hidden histories found in the region. We are especially passionate about locating and circulating the untold stories of those who are traditionally underrepresented and seldom heard in society to offer a platform for social change.

One of our goals is to highlight the artistic wealth of the North of England, and we create promotional videos to represent the arts and culture in the region.
Alongside our visual content, we also record interesting discussions and debates to create audio content, and have developed these into podcast series.
