At Magali Pettier Film & Photography, we create short and feature documentaries and dramas, and corporate films for TV Broadcast, government bodies, charities and private companies.
Magali's work spans a wide range of topics, from national / international social or political issues through to the craftsmanship of established businesses; all reveal the diversity of the world we live in from an emotionally uplifting perspective.
Magali also works as a freelance shooting Director / Producer and Photographer.
Most recently, Magali has co-produced / directed and shot a documentary titled ‘A Jacket for Life’ about Barbour - a film which is now featured on Portable TV and entered into the festival circuit (vimeo.com/54563494). She has also produced, directed and filmed ‘Addicted to Sheep’. This feature documentary which received funding from Northern Film & Media at Sheffield Doc Fest in 2011, is now in post-production (vimeo.com/28116403). Additionally, ‘Reflections on Glass’ is also one of her latest films (vimeo.com/43497706).
In the last ten years, Magali has received funding from several bodies in the North East (i.e.: Helix Arts, Arts Council, Northern Film & Media, The Cyrenians, IPRN, Darlington Arts Centre, Crisis, Gem Arts, Newcastle City Council). As a result of this, she has worked on a number of commissions such as 'Bread Winners', a photographic research about migrant workers in Singapore, 'Halo', a multi-media exhibition about the involvement in the arts of five community groups in Darlington and '100 faces, 100 stories', a site-specific multi-media installation in collaboration with the award-winning theatre director Alan Lyddiard. Moreover, she developed an extensive body of work titled ‘2005-2061’, a project which examined the influence of the west over the Nepalese lifestyle through documentary photography. This work was exhibited at Sunderland University, The Biscuit Factory in Newcastle and The French Alliance in Cork, Ireland and led her to a nomination for 'The Guardian Student Media Award Student Photographer of The Year 2005'.
Furthermore, Magali’s role as a Lead Artist / Facilitator on participatory projects with homeless people and women sex workers led to the publication of two books 'I see, you don't see' and 'A Day In Our Lives' (see samples of this work on www.magalipettier.com/galleries/photography).
