Insignia makes films driven by compelling characters, pressing social issues, and surprising stories that shed light on the diversity of the human condition. We produce long-form series, craft feature documentaries, and create innovative digital content.  For more than 30 years we have tackled subjects as varied as the conquest of the American West and the legacy of Bush v. Gore; epic journeys through the Grand Canyon and the story of the world’s smallest opera company; efforts to save gorillas in the Congo and the unlikely rise of a thoroughbred named Seabiscuit. Our work has appeared on PBS, HBO, Nat Geo, the New York Times, and has won Emmys, the Cine Golden Eagle Award and been honored by the Writers and Directors Guild of America.
