For over twenty years Journeyman has distributed and co-produced, provocative, profound and original factual content, working with the top players in the industry.
We're one of the leading independent suppliers of award winning stories to the world broadcast market and pride ourselves on a position at the spearhead of the factual agenda. With a very successful catalogue covering a myriad of subjects and styles; commercial, current affairs, and feature docs, we always keep at heart a central journalistic ethic that goes to the very roots of the company.
After years reporting from dangerous war zones across the world, company founder Mark Stucke began formulating a unique distribution system that would bring a greater return for the valuable copyright he and fellow producers were risking their necks to create.
Twenty years on our agenda remains the same: to always be looking for new ways to create revenue for the stories our partners tell - and that's no easy task in a world in which serious factual content is rapidly disappearing from mainstream outlets.
We operate 3 departments: documentaries, news, and footage. At the heart of our sales operation are our media-rich newsletters, 'The Journeyman Weekly' and 'Doc of the Week', which offer an overview of our latest documentaries and go out to over 6,000 buyers worldwide.
These are just part of the most sophisticated online marketing campaign mounted by any distributor, incorporating our award-winning You Tube channels and VOD platforms. All this is supported by a hungry sales team with a strong understanding of the broadcast market.
The combination of interactive web platforms, a powerful publicity machine and a topical sales focus means our films target both broadcasters, and the consumer directly. And our Google partnership means the films are always discoverable and continually kept alive, even years after launch.
In a world driven by ratings and a quick entertainment fix, it is becoming increasingly difficult to get intelligent, international coverage seen. It is a challenge we thrive on. We’re constantly pushing forward new developments to keep ahead of an ever-changing game.
