The Halls Family

Monty and his family embark on a series of mini-adventures around the UK, celebrating family adventure, the outdoors and accessible exploration for all. More details coming soon…

  • Seadog TV & Film Productions was formed by multi-award-winning broadcaster and presenter Monty Halls. Originally providing support for marine and aerial filming operations, Seadog undertook a crowd-funding campaign in 2015 in order to expand its out-put, and is now achieving notable broadcast and commercial success in its own right.

    Our award-winning team produces factual programmes for major broadcasters worldwide, telling important stories about the world we live in. We also work with brands to create story-led video content that audiences seek-out.

  • Seadog has a policy of employing young, talented film-makers and combining this with experienced production veterans. As such, the company prides itself on nurturing new industry talent, whilst at the same time utilising relationships and experience that has been built up over many decades.

    Such a blend has created two series for Channel 4 in 2017, and an exciting raft of ideas in development for 2018.

  • Seadog’s first commission was the much-acclaimed WWII’s Great Escapes: The Freedom Trails for Channel 4. Over four episodes, Monty Halls trekked the Freedom Trails of WWII, discovering what it took to escape Nazi Europe and meeting the ordinary men and women who became heroes in the process.

    The series, broadcast in Autumn 2017, received high praise from the public and industry alike for its accurate and sensitive retelling of these incredible journeys. It was also noted for its cutting-edge interview techniques and spectacular drone footage.

  • Seadog’s commercial branch has created branded content for major corporate clients such as Land Rover, The National Trust and The Mayo Clinic. We now offer a full video production service, and with extensive knowledge of the online and offline worlds are able to craft our output based on genuine experience and enthusiasm to create maximum impact from any campaign.

    Based on founder Monty Halls reputation and track record in the leadership training sector, Seadog has also launched Leaderbox – a truly innovative technique for training the leaders of tomorrow.

  • Seadog represents a truly modern story – a regional independent production company, created using community enthusiasm and investment, staffed by the next generation of industry creatives, and guided by mentors with decades of media experience.

    Whether we’re producing a documentary series for television, a commercial, or anything in between, Seadog’s philosophy remains the same: to create content that reflects our own passion and expertise, that reaches the highest industry standards and captivates audiences through powerful stories that are beautifully told.
