ABOUT US

Five Fifty Five is an independent film company, employing a diverse network of writers,
designers and producers who create impactful, innovative content.

Five Fifty Five is committed to ‘content worth creating’,
using real film to tell ground breaking stories that effect change.

Our film & TV department creates hard hitting narrative while our commercial
department focuses on pairing often larger budgets with equally large causes.

Our palate is broad, mixing new technologies with old to get to the heart of every story,
shifting perspective on age-old-tales, that are right for the now.

 
 
If you come at four in the afternoon, I’ll begin to be happy by three.

“Well,” said Pooh, “what I like best...” and then he had to stop and think. Because although eating honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn’t know what it was called.
