About Journeyman Pictures

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.

The Journeyman Team

Mark Stucke

Founder and managing director of Journeyman Pictures. At the age of 21 Mark was dodging bullets in the Russian Afghan war, working on his first conflict documentary. In 1990 he established Journeyman and moulded it into a support and sales hub for freelancers operating in conflict zones around the world, establishing strong relationships with all the world's leading broadcasters. If selling short news films was the crucible of his distribution training, the decision in 2000 to focus on documentary distribution and co-production was what branded the company as one of the leading factual distributors globally. Today that expertise has embraced the digital age with Journeyman becoming one of the few factual distributors to achieve direct partnerships with Apple, Google, and Amazon.

Emma Simpson

As company manager Emma’s role at Journeyman is wide-ranging, including acquisitions of documentaries and short reports, sales, development projects and editorial. But her main love is running the post production department, mostly handling reversioning of feature length docs for the TV market. Just so long as the office doesn't run out of tea she can solve pretty much any problem thrown at her.

Dominic Keen

Dominic's Journeyman experience began in the bustling technical department, helping to meet manic broadcasting demands. Having stepped into the role of accounts and business affairs manager, he now uses his understanding of the in-house systems to keep Journeyman's customers and film owners up to date with all our activity. He also flexes his literary muscles helping with weekly promotional copy writing.

Annie Edwards

After graduating from Cambridge University, Annie cut her teeth in corporate videography, language teaching and cocktail mixing before settling into Journeyman’s sales team. Handling documentary sales around the world, Annie puts her multi-lingual skills to use getting our great films out to global audiences

Lindsay Murray

Lindsay heads up the busy Digital and Technical department overseeing all of Journeyman's Broadcast and VOD output. He brings a plethora of knowledge with creative credits including Film Restoration for Tim Burton's Dark Shadows as well as artwork concept for Led Zeppelin's Mothership. Lindsay's passion for legacy audiovisual formats promises meticulous attention to detail for archive production from film, analogue video and digital realms.

Catherine Foot

Our acquisitions co-ordinator Cat is responsible for all of our documentary releases and promotion strategies, as well as looking after our talented filmmakers. She recently graduated from Cambridge alongside working as a judge for the Watersprite film festival. When she's not helping us search for the best new docs she can be found somewhere muddy, training for triathlons.

Matt Price

Matt got his first taste of the Journeyman library when he joined the team as a digital assistant, helping to bring historical reports and docs to new audiences on our online platforms. He now uses this knowledge of our collection to drive footage research and sales. From the topical to the obscure, to the downright bizarre, he can help you find that perfect shot for your project.

Harry Amies

Harry first began working with Journeyman Pictures in 2008 when he built the online platform that serves all Journeyman's Video On Demand content. With an extensive background in both online and film-making, he now advises on Journeyman's new projects and online media development.
