Midnight Odyssey Productions (MOP) is no different. We're a unique creation team bringing an insightful approach to the journey of filmmaking. From writing scripted TV series and feature films, to producing and directing, we always look for the road less traveled.
The team behind MOP joined forces professionally in 2011 to collaborate on various projects. We take advantage of our diverse backgrounds in journalism, travel writing, humanitarian work and photography to develop character-driven narratives that are intimate and thought-provoking with dark, cinematic realism.
We tackle global themes and diverse subject matter in our pursuit of complex characters and unique storylines. Establishing strong links with international co-productions, diasporas and under represented actors is our goal.
