Vertigo Films is a British television and film production company based in London, England. Vertigo Films has been responsible for the production and distribution of Bronson, StreetDance 3D, and Monsters. It now focuses solely on the production of television series, with subsidiary company Vertigo Releasing taking over film distribution.


Vertigo Films was created in July 2002, by producers Allan Niblo (producer of Human Traffic and South West 9) and James Richardson (producer of Kiss Kiss (Bang Bang)).[2]

Director Nick Love (screenwriter and, prior to company formation, director of Goodbye Charlie Bright and The Football Factory) and distributor Rupert Preston (distributor of Chopper, Chasing Amy and Bride of Chucky, among others) joined a year later,[3] while entrepreneur Rob Morgan began investment in November 2004.[4]

The company was formed for the express purpose of distributing and producing two films, The Football Factory and It's All Gone Pete Tong. Vertigo Films's film releases were distributed on home video by Entertainment One.[5] Vertigo Films teamed up with Film4 and Ingenious Media in January 2008, to form a sales company called Protagonist Pictures.[6] They also own a post production company in Berlin called The Post Republic.[7]

Having built up one of the most successful feature film businesses in the United Kingdom, encompassing production, distribution, sales and post production, the company is now solely concentrating on television production.[8] Film distribution is currently handled by Vertigo Releasing, launched in 2014, for the sole purpose of acquiring films for release.[9][citation needed]

Its first two shows, Britannia and Bulletproof, were commissioned by Sky, with both programmes renewed for a second series.[10][11]
