frontier is a 26-part live action sci-fi television series created and developed by Steve Begg and John Needham. The commercialisation of outer space runs amok as a newly discovered planet is recklessly plundered for the benefit of Earth's plutocrats and oligarchs. Unfortunately for them, the solar system's uninhabited newcomer chooses to fight back.

1884: Yesterday's Future is a full-length animated feature film and the brainchild of its director, Tim Ollive. The film's creative executive producer is Tim's long-time friend, mentor and boss, Terry Gilliam, who has this to say about the film, "It's an extraordinary script, the ideas are extraordinary and the design is amazing and the style is what I think is unique, with this mixture of handmade things and modern computer techniques, so it creates a texture, an ambience that is really special."
