pilgrim pictures: introduction

Pilgrim Pictures is a small production house specialising in creating original screen content for cinema release, TV, the web and such.

Our areas of expertise range from scriptwriting, project development and production, production management through to post-production and distribution.



We are situated in the Garden City - on a country island called Singapore (sometimes known as the little red dot).

Our goal is to create compelling and entertaining stories with an Asian perspective, and to share them with the world.

In the very near future, we also look forward to collaborations with international partners.
