We’re Sweet Patootee. As producers of documentaries and heritage interpretation, we bring inspiring, compelling and diverse stories of real people to an international audience.
Stories that deserve to be heard
All of our work is underpinned by our belief that people from all backgrounds have stories that deserve to be heard. We don’t do unemotional, academic history, because for us, history is personal. You’ll see that in our work with the East Enders of London for example, Caribbean First World War veterans and the people who lived through the Singapore mutiny.
Stories told with honesty
Whether it be for an exhibition, documentary or online platform, the content we create reflects our ability to build relationships that allow people to open up and share their stories with honesty.
Stories that move you
We want people to love the art of storytelling as much as we do, so we throw all of our energy into producing work that entertains and inspires our audience. As far as we’re concerned, there’s no excuse for boring. You might feel happy, sad, surprised, maybe even angry when you experience our work – but we can promise you you’ll always feel something. If something moves you, you’re more likely to remember it – and the stories we find should never be forgotten.
Tony T and Rebecca Goldstone
It’s been nearly 20 years since we put our heads together and decided to found Sweet Patootee. We realised that if we combined our experience as producers, writers, researchers and editors, with our slightly geeky, totally passionate love of history and storytelling, we might be onto something. Since then, we’ve worked with some of the best directors, technical crews, partner organisations, production teams and executive producers in the business – who have all bought wholeheartedly into Sweet Patootee’s mission.
