Online Co-Production Case Study: A Dog Called Money

12 Nov 2020, 11:00AM - 12:00PM
Online (Zoom)

Following on from the second edition of our Co-Production Club, Creative Europe Desk UK is organising series of online case study sessions on film co-production throughout the autumn that are free and open to all.

We've picked some of the most exciting films in cinemas and on VOD in the UK right now, and will present a case study exploring the financial and creative process behind those films. This is a chance for UK professionals to learn directly from the producers behind some of the most celebrated films on the circuit.

The sessions will be held on Zoom. All three will be captioned for those that are D/deaf or hard of hearing. If you have any other accessibility needs please do get in touch.

Online Co-Production Case Study: A Dog Called Money

In A Dog Called Money award-winning war photographer and filmmaker Seamus Murphy explores the creative inspiration behind PJ Harvey’s album The Hope Six Demolition Project, filming her in a London recording studio and charting their travels together in Afghanistan, Kosovo and the U.S.

PJ Harvey fans and film lovers alike will be captivated by this thought-provoking documentary—both an intimate journey into the creative process, and a kaleidoscopic travelogue in zones of war and social unrest. Dreamlike and elliptical, this is a stunning portrait of an enigmatic musical icon.  We are delighted to be joined by Seamus and the producers behind the film to hear about how ithis UK/Irish co-production came to be.  

This session is held in collaboration with Docs Ireland.


  • Katie Holly, Producer (Blinder Films – Ireland)

  • Isabel Davis, Producer (Pulse Films – UK)
  • Jim Wilson, Producer (JW Films - UK)
