We are Trunkman Productions, producers and creators of internationally acclaimed live events, podcasts, documentaries, web series and other things of that ilk.
A lot of our work focuses on the collision of art and science. We like to think that what we do is curiously entertaining, and entertainingly curious.
Based in London in the UK since 2005, we were founded in Australia in 2001.
Founders of The Cosmic Shambles Network, we work with the best and brightest in their fields on camera, behind the camera, on stage and back stage.
Some of our recent work
