Some of our recent productions

The Spy Who Stole the Atom Bomb

This Oxford Digital Media documentary, charts the story of Soviet spy Ursula Kuczynski.  Based in Oxford, Sonya spent ten years from 1941 relaying atomic secrets to the Russians. Operating under the noses of MI5, she outsmarted Britain’s star interrogator of the day, evaded capture and even managed to escape Stalin’s great purge.

To tell Sonya’s story, we gained access to her MI5 files, recently released to the National Archives, and enlisted the skills of drama director Bill Thomas (The Berlin Wall, Churchill’s Toyshop, Nazi Megastructures) and DOP Gary Clarke (The Plantagenets: Britain’s Bloodiest Dynasty).  Drama reconstruction was filmed in Oxford, with many scenes recreated in the places they happened, such as the gravestone Sonya used for dead letter drops.

Sonya: The Spy Who Stole the Atom Bomb was directed and produced by Hannah Veale with post production by Oxford Digital Media.

Poison Flower

Gundega, a Latvian former prison officer, is on the run from a drugs charge. Surviving on benefits in a makeshift camp in the woods in Harlow, UK, she befriends Melanie, a heroin user mourning the death of her Latvian boyfriend. Their friendship provides each of them with something they crave.

Poison Flower grew out of a chance meeting between Oxford Digital Media and Christopher Michael Tew at Sheffield Doc/Fest. Chris had amassed hours of footage documenting the lives of Eastern European immigrants living among Harlow’s established homeless community. Working with producer Hannah Veale and editor Matt Greenham we crafted a cohesive narrative from the chaos. The result is an exceptionally intimate debut feature documentary and a compelling, shocking, and deeply moving portrait of an unlikely friendship.
