Who we are
Growing up in the Swiss town of Basel developed Rebecca’s natural flare for problem solving and keeping calm – naturally, she became a film producer. She packed up her lederhosen and vaulted the Alps, moving to London at 17.
She established her first film production company in 2009, Achilles Entertainments with Ian. Their first feature, KickOff, sold internationally and had over 20 festival screenings. With a passion for entrepreneurship, storytelling and equality, Rebecca strives to seek out stories with a social cause.
Originally from Scunthorpe, Ian moved to London to study acting at the Arts Educational Schools. In 2016 with Rebecca they co-founded Sharp House.
Whilst still treading the boards in various productions from the BBC's Happy Valley, Code Of Silence, Les Miserables and more, Ian has produced and executive produced multiple feature films. Credits include: The Marker, Homebound, Monsoon, Martyrs Lane, Undergods, Northern Soul and the official Sundance Film Festival selected Halston and Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist. Ian has recently produced, The Matriarch for Disney Studio’s/Hulu and 2022’s Screen Star of Tomorrow George Jaques directorial feature debut Black Dog, executive produced by Oscar winning producer David Parfitt at Trademark Films.
Ian is also the founder of the London based talent agency Revolution Talent, which represents leading international creative talent plus an investor in multiple media companies ranging from podcasts to blockchain startups tackling film rights ownership.
Head of TV
Paul is a former Head of Development at Disney, Development Exec, Series Producer and writer across a range of genres: comedy, drama, adults, YA, Family and kids, specialising in a string of successful long running series, from BBC2’s first transgender rom-com, BOY MEETS GIRL, SKYs 26 episode YA drama series, THE ATHENA, as well as a range of long-running YA series.
The broad range of genres can be seen in the current slate from High Action YA to period dramas through to procedurals and comedies.
Having started his career as a writer on Channel 4’s DESMOND’S, he carries that ethos of nurturing scripts from new (and older) marginalised diverse voices on the outside looking in but very much with a worldview he wants to bring to the screen. Less keen on the bottom-drawer idea, he would rather help realise the passion project the writer didn’t even know they had in them. With the world a smaller place, local (and personal) stories are tomorrow’s global hits. Now is the time for the insiders to look out.
