About Mockingbird Pictures
Mockingbird Pictures was formed in the Spring of 1999.
The name is inspired by three things. First, Harper Lee’s novel and the film starring Gregory Peck entitled “To Kill A Mockingbird.” The subject is integrity, and the execution of both pieces pure artistry. It is the marriage of those two concepts that we aspire to achieve. Second, the mockingbird is the only songbird that regularly changes his tune. We feel it is important to flow with our circumstances: to live, and learn, and be open to the people and opportunities surrounding us. Finally, the mockingbird is a fierce defender of its nest. This is how we feel about our projects, as well as the many individuals who work with us on each of them.
We have comedies and thrillers amidst our slate, as must every company with an eye towards diversification in the marketplace. There is great value in entertainment. And yet, many of our projects – indeed, the ones that we feel most committed to – reflect our desire to tell stories that will impact our audiences in ways that stay with them well beyond their time in the theatre.
We want the process of filmmaking to be rewarding. Our goal is to have every filmmaker, crew member, and financier that works with us want to repeat the experience. This means being responsible to the budgets, and yet flexible enough to meet the constantly changing needs of artistic enterprise.
So, the goal remains the same: artistic integrity in product and process.
Mockingbird Pictures is located in Los Angeles, California.
