CENTERED ON THE HUMAN BEING
Documentary is the ultimate encounter, wavering between the predictable and the unpredictable. We offer films and series that come to life around the major themes of society and encounters on a human scale. Identity, art, music and the environment are some of the areas of reflection we favour, through portraits, investigations and discoveries.
WITH THE HEART
A foray into the wonderful world of fiction via the youth series ON S’EXPOSE , which you will soon be able to watch, opens MUSTANG’s blinders for other wonderful adventures based on stories full of meaning, beauty, humour and even…terror!
AU-DELÀ DU DIVERTISSEMENT
Over the years, Swan Productions has produced a variety of original magazine programs, covering areas as varied as decoration, psychology for children and adults, aboriginal community issues, paranormal phenomena, inventions, cooking, nutrition and health. MUSTANG is carrying on with those subjects and offers a variety of productions that are just as substantial and decidedly entertaining to enjoy without moderation!
Born out of the desire to move forward, to surpass oneself and to open up to new forms of distribution, MUSTANG’s mission is to produce content that reflects human realities and thoughts. Whether it is through documentary films, genre series, service magazines or youth programs, we always bet on the quality of our proposals.
Open to the world, MUSTANG offers projects on various platforms, both in Québec and across Canada, that correspond to the realities of the market. Always on the lookout for current issues, our team promotes a personalized approach to meet the needs of our clients while suggesting compelling topics and characters that are sometimes larger than life!
MUSTANG is an eco-responsible production company that promotes transparency in all stages of production. At MUSTANG, we care about the talent of our creators and all the actors who contribute to the successful completion of a project.
To create quality projects for the national and international markets.
To develop series with strong editorial guidelines.
To encourage authors’ points of view and visions that stand out from the crowd.
2020 signals an important year for MUSTANG, with the acquisition of the Swan productions catalogue.
2020 also symbolizes a year of development and production of several projects that will finally come out of the “box”. These include ON S'EXPOSE (TFO) with SLALOM productions, 50 FAÇONS DE TUER SA MÈRE, an adventure project for UnisTV, and several coproductions under development that we will soon be able to announce. Also, as associate producer and co-writer, we will begin production of the feature-length documentary AU BOUTE DU RIEN PANTOUTE.
Joining our forces to produce relevant, human, interesting and entertaining content is the DNA of MUSTANG. To do so, coproducing reflects a more than desirable modus operandi for the completion of multiple projects. People in video production companies sharing the same vision make content creation viable.
