Mother Mountain Productions Community Interest Company was founded in 2016, with the mission to give a voice to vulnerable groups. Our first project, funded by Big Lottery, was to tackle rising hate crime in the North West of England. Such was our success that we went on to gain a number of prestigious public sector contracts which have enabled us to progress innovative and cutting-edge research and data collection processes, pioneering 360 VR filming techniques to address social issues such as knife crime, cyber bullying and sexual exploitation. As we have grown, we have incorporated virtual reality expertise into our portfolio as our main offer. Our current clients include Greater Manchester Police and Wigan Local Authority.Our work has been covered by BBC and ITV News.
We pride ourselves on our collaborative and person centredapproach. Co-design is fundamental to our iterative development process, involving customers at every stage of production and testing. Our aim is to deliver a bespoke product every time which exceeds your expectations. We believe that learning is lifelong and should be engaging and challenging, and to this end we have developed strong links with a number of UK universities including Manchester and Liverpool. These partnerships have helped us trial and fine tune our work to the highest possible standard.
