“After nourishment, shelter and companionship,
stories are the things we need most in the world.”

Philip Pullman

saskia vischer productions (SVP) is an award-winning story and film production company located in the centre of Europe, working with talent from all over the world, devoted to the creation of innovative and magical movies for international audiences. The films are high-profile director-driven movies of independent spirit: original, intelligent and meaningful stories with distinctive style, attracting top level cast to build efficient production and financing strategies.

Managed by Swiss Australian entrepreneur Saskia Vischer, the company is a tight network of diverse skills required in the filmmaking process. The administrative headquarters are in Switzerland, supported by the main digital laboratory and post-production facilities, geographically close to the directors and production staff.

The choice of projects and directors is a highly selective process. Once the vision for a project is clear, SVP actively supports the directors' work to create the best film possible - designed for artistic and commercial success. Independent film projects are at the heart of the company's organisation, structure and strategy.

Film industry affiliations include Ateliers du Cinéma (ACE), European Audio Visual Entrepreneurs (EAVE), CineMart Rotterdam, Cannes, Berlinale, Locarno and Swiss filmmakers' associations.

Founded in 2004, the company has managed over 60 projects in the creative industries including TV, advertising, music, photography, corporate, festivals and art. From 2007, the business shifted focus and is now completely devoted to international cinema.
