Bad Wolf Economic Impacts

Bad Wolf are leading the way for the Film and TV sector within Wales, creating programming that is viewed all around the globe. Jane Tranter and Julie Gardener's dream to create a world class company in the heart of Cardiff became a reality in 2015, and have since gone from strength to strength in creating top quality TV shows. They have worked with a multitude of top broadcasters, including Sky, HBO and the BBC, creating incredibly popular shows such as His Dark Materials, A Discovery of Witches, Industry, and I Hate Suzie.

Bad Wolf share our desire to encourage people to pursue a career in the media by actively demonstrating the vast number of roles that are available in this area of work throughout schools, colleges and universities within Wales.

Alongside Screen Alliance Wales, Bad Wolf have created training programmes that have so far involved 122 work placements and 51 traineeships, with many trainees going on to become leading professionals in their fields; working on productions not only at Bad Wolf, but throughout the booming industry across Wales.

The economic impact of the work that is carried out by Bad Wolf has been phenomenal, generating more than £110 million for the Welsh economy, with just under half of all production spend being spent within Wales on labour, suppliers and intellectual property holders. By investing in local businesses, Bad Wolf are ensuring that the future of the TV and Film industry in Wales continues to thrive for many years to come.

The future is looking bright for Bad Wolf, with two of their productions nearing the end of principle photography and several exciting projects soon to be announced. They have also recently been awarded the "Production Company of the Year" award at this year’s Edinburgh TV awards; a well-deserved accolade for a brilliant company.
