M J W PRODUCTIONS has a long and distinguished record of producing award-winning film and television, particularly in the area of music and arts, but increasingly moving into drama and feature film. Many of their films have involved international co-productions and collaborations, and they have worked extensively with new talent.

HAMLET, a film version of Royal Exchange Theatre’s sell-out production starring Maxine Peake was shown in cinemas across the UK receiving much enthusiastic praise. In feature films, they are currently developing: THRILL (working title), a UK-FINNISH co-production and TELL ME THE TRUTH ABOUT LOVE, both to be directed by Margaret.

MJW have made many short films for television exploring the relationship between choreography and the camera such as ONE MAN WALKING for Channel 4’s STREET season. In 2014 they produced RANDOM ACTS: BIG DANCE 2014, a series of 5 UK-Brazilian dance film collaborations, also for Channel 4. MJW have also made films with leading choreographers such as David Bintley/Birmingham Royal Ballet, Wayne McGregor, Jiri Kylian/ Nederlands Dans Theater, Maria Muñoz and Pep Ramis of Catalan-based company Mal Pelo and Cathy Marston/Danza Contemporeana de Cuba. 

MJW have a particular reputation for music-dramas. Their film versions of Benjamin Britten's PETER GRIMES ON ALDEBURGH BEACH and OWEN WINGRAVE (both directed by Margaret Williams) were received with great critical acclaim. ARMIDA, a specially commissioned work by composer Judith Weir, was shown on Christmas Day on
Channel 4.

As well as their feature film projects, MJW are currently in development on a number of new arts programmes for television.
