How it all began
Lost Tapir Productions was formed by three friends who always talked about working together again but never seemed to make it happen. Until they did! Over a cooked breakfast at a greasy spoon café, the trio discussed what was to be their first project: 7 Minutes in Heaven (2021).
From there, the company has since expanded as they move to tackle new ventures across theatre and film! And the rest, as they say, is history.
What we do
Lost Tapir Productions is a dynamic, multi-disciplinary company that strives to produce both Film and Stage Productions, with an emphasis on narrative storytelling and comedy. Each of the Core Team has a wealth of experience, and are working in collaboration with one another to create more of what they love to see in creative spaces; projects that explore topics such as a mental health, LGBTQ+ representation, and existentialism while still retaining an element of fun.
