Several novels optioned from bestselling authors.

Traditional pieces of work are enhanced through additional experiences that bring an audience deeper into the world of the play.

Who We Are

Two Friends. One Vision

In 2004, two guys met at a climbing gym.
One came from the world of high finance, trading and stocks. The other came from theatre, film and classical music.
With these complementary skills, and bound by a love of storytelling, finance and the outdoors,
they have joined forces to form Five Four Media.
