From Short Films, To Documentaries and Music Videos
About The Studio
Dulwich Studios had its humble beginnings in the back garden of Josef Pitura-Riley who as a teenager started making short films as a hobby. He quickly found success with films such as The Secret Of Pirate Island, for which he won the SOLO Award for Best Director Under 20 and Spaceship Street which had its premiere at The Brixton Ritzy. Josef's ambition of creating entertaining short films remains at the heart of Dulwich Studios and has never been more evident than in our latest (and most ambitious) projects Being A Superhero and the 10 part web series Stars Of The Future, which both pushed the boundries of independent filmmaking.

Meanwhile the studio has also worked on a variety of different productions over the years, working with clients such as The Intergenerational Foundation, Woofstock Festival and WoodlandsTV. Combined we have shot over 100 short documentaries, "how-to" and promotional videos in a wide range of locations from the wilderness to Westminster Palace. We're extremely experienced in this area and have built up a solid system that allows us to produce high quality films every single time. In addition to this we've also filmed showreel scenes for actors and filmed several live productions including "Between Us: The Musical" at The Mermaid Theatre and "My Fair Ladies" at The Prince Of Wales Theatre in the West End.

The last few years has seen the studio expand into music too with Dulwich Studios having worked on several music videos, live gig recordings and the many cover songs Josef Pitura-Riley has released on YouTube. 2018 also sees the launch of our brand new Acoustic Live Videos so if you're a musician and need a great video to promote your music, look no further! We also have our own production studio where we've recorded and mixed new music by local musicians, voiceover and singing reels for a variety of artists and worked on audio projects for high profile clients such BMW and Rolls Royce.

This welcome return to the world of short films doesn't end here with other projects in the pipeline which will begin production very soon.
