A quick history of all things Offkey. In 2014 Steve Whiteley wanted to incorporate his experience as a comedy improviser into the world of producing film content. So he launched a YouTube channel, collaborating with a bunch of creative and funny people to make a series of sketches, which were featured in Buzzfeed, The Huffington Post, The Metro and more. This led to producing an array of comedy branded film content. The YouTube channel was nominated for ‘Best Internet Programme’ at the 2014 British Comedy Awards, whilst the branded content work led to a nomination for a Cannes YDA producer of the year award.
Fast forward to 2020 and our scripted work has been nominated for an Edinburgh TV Festival New Voices Award for Best New Pilot, the 1.4 Awards and won a couple of Lovie Awards. Our shorts have screened at BAFTA and Oscar qualifying film festivals including Palm Springs ShortFest, Rhodes Islands Intl Film Festival, Encounters and more. So we’re like big time now.
