MIPCOM Spotlight: Escapade Media


Escapade Media’s factual slate includes two animal-focused documentaries and one on mental health in Australia.

For the Love of Pets offers an inside look at the Animal Welfare League of South Australia at a unique time when pet ownership has never been higher.

The Healing also focuses on a welfare program, this time on the Thoroughbred and Veteran Welfare Alliance. The documentary follows as the rehabilitation program pairs traumatized ex-racehorses and veterans so they can help heal each other. “This beautiful story will resonate across the globe while offering a real possibility of hope,” says Natalie Lawley, managing director.

Osher Günsberg: A Matter of Life and Death centers on the eponymous Australian celebrity as he investigates how new science, innovative thinking and technology are helping prevent suicide and what Australians can do to reduce the national suicide rate.

Lawley notes, “All [these] projects are in line with Escapade’s mission to present unique and fresh content that resonates with global audiences.”
