About Maya Vision:
Maya Vision International is an independent film and television production
company that grew out of just plain Maya Vision. Since 1982 we've built a solid reputation for producing quality
documentaries and drama, completing numerous commissions for the BBC, Channel 4, Public
Broadcasting Service in America, the British Film Institute and the Arts
Council as well as cable, satellite and European broadcasters.
We've filmed in too many countries to name, gaining global expertise and
contacts. We like to think that the number of awards we've won around the
world are a reflection on our innovative, creative approach to production.
While awards and recognition are always nice, the fact that we've earned a
name for nurturing fresh talent and ideas is something that is far more
important to us. We're happy to say that we have been pivotal in launching
