About Us...

We go back to 1995...

Monty Funk Productions began in 1997 as a production company and studio facilities for the BBC. After more than 1000 programmes made for BBC Radio 4, Radio 3, Radio 2 and The World Service, Monty Funk progressed into audio trails and early podcasting.

This naturally brought us into the heritage interpretation world, where we began producing interpretation panels and interactive displays for the National Trust among others. This then melded with our technological roots and we began to redesign old telephones into oral history presentation systems, this then led into iOS & Android app development.

Our offering to the heritage interpretation world now includes: graphic design, illustration, photography, interactive map-making, audio production, electronics black-bock design and manufacture and of course app development.

What People Say

The support from you and your team has been exceptional throughout the project and made my responsibilities much lighter. Thank you.

“Excellent from the outset; my colleagues and I were very impressed... We had a tight deadline and they pushed the boat out to help us... Nothing was too much trouble...  They were very focused to ensure that we had the product that we wanted...  I fully recommend them.”

“We wanted to make a series of podcasts about the industrial heritage of our area and had no idea where to start. Monty Funk were fantastic, managing the entire project plus translations into German, French and Dutch on time and on budget.
 

Monty Funk were extremely helpful, friendly and professional at all times, we are thrilled with the quality of the podcasts and have had great feedback from our customers.”

“We have worked with Monty Funk Productions on various projects and it is refreshing to come across such a creative team.

 

They combine artistic flair with a conscientious attention to detail.

 

We have felt that our projects were in the ‘safe hands’ of experienced individuals but also in the hands of people who connected with our projects and enriched them”.

 “Prior to Monty Funk Productions’ delivery of this project, average visitor dwell time was around an hour, or an hour and a half if we were lucky. Now, it’s three and a half hours"
