Established in 2009 by Claudia Bluemhuber, Silver Reel is a home for the world’s most exciting talent behind and in front of the camera. We develop, produce, and finance relevant, pioneering, and high-quality content, entertaining and impacting audiences around the world.

Bringing to life both feature film and scripted TV projects, we have built an international reputation and a proud network with studios (incl. HBO, BBC, Sony, Disney, A24, Fremantle, Working Title Films etc.), agents, and A-list talent.

Silver Reel is the company behind Emmy nominated series 'Most Dangerous Game', Academy-Award nominated and Golden Globe winning 'The Wife', Academy-Award nominated 'Loving Vincent', critics’ darling 'Under The Skin', and acclaimed works such as 'Official Secrets', 'Breathe', 'Eye In The Sky', and 'The Railway Man'. Current projects include 'Fallen', a series directed by Matt Hastings (EP on 'The Handmaid’s Tale') based on the #1 NY Times bestselling novel series of the same name, and 'Paradise Highway' starring Academy-Award winners Juliette Binoche and Morgan Freeman.


We are a relatively small team with many active projects. This allows for a broad range of exposure to all aspects of a production company and a wide variety of day-to-day responsibilities. This may include reading scripts, writing coverage, research, assisting in a specific area of a project and with general office duties. You will spend time across our Film and Television slate, in both development and production roles, on a project-focused basis.
