Production 100, 2015 Back to Reports & survey Listing

Below is the list of true indies. They are companies that are truly independent, and are run by their owners rather than a US studio, UK broadcaster or private equity group. Entrepreneurial in spirit, they are among the fastest growing companies in the Production 100.

Avalon tops the list on the back of a strong year that has seen revenues at the comedy and entertainment outfit climb from £66.3m to £87.1m.

Hat Trick has done well too. Turnover is up from £37m last year
to £47m this year. Another indie to perform strongly is Arrow Media. The factual indie has seen turnover leap from £7.8m to £10.9m.

Elsewhere, indies such as Wild Pictures, Burning Bright, Eleven Film, Oxford Film and TV, Minnow Films, Sixteen South and HCA Entertainment have posted strong growth. HCA, for example, has had a swathe of shows in production for multiple broadcasters.

New entrants to the list include JJ Stereo, Woodcut Media, Sweet TV, If Not Us Films, Clean Cut Media, Firecrest Films and Amos Pictures.
