Grant’s Hotel Secrets, among others.

Michelle Crowther said: “Whisper’s core values were a huge draw for us in joining them; their drive and ambition are infectious to be a part of. They’ve been hugely supportive and the partnership provides a great opportunity to learn from one another.

Mike Reilly added: “We set up Moonshine Features to bring real cinematic storytelling to our talent-led, factual and arts slate and partnering with Whisper really allows us to be ambitious, as we realise our next stable of commissions. The possibilities going forward feel limitless.”

As part of The Whisper Group, Moonshine Features joins sport and entertainment company, Whisper as well as unscripted entertainment specialist East Media and motion graphics design agency Chapter 3 Graphics.

Having them onboard as Moonshine Features brings more significant experience to the Group and strengthens our overall offering. It also boosts our growing presence in non-scripted and scripted entertainment. We look forward to supporting Moonshine as needed, as they develop and grow.”
