Funding Story:

We have provided Tin Roof Media Limited, a London- and Chepstow-based diverse media content company, with £2.5m in refinance and working capital support 

Tin Roof Media works with major Broadcasters including the BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, Disney+, Discovery Channel and National Geographic and has produced titles including Meet the Chimps, Treasures Decoded, Remarkable Places to Eat, Sarah Beeny’s Renovate Don’t Relocate, Tom Kerridge Barbeques and Mummy Mysteries amongst many others. It operates under the brands Blink Films and Outline Productions. 

Blink Films is a BAFTA award-winning production company set up in 2007 by Dan Chambers and Justine Kershaw and has produced over 400 hours of factual documentaries, features, factual entertainment, drama-doc and comedy programming.

Outline is an independent TV production company set up in 1998 by Laura Mansfield and Helen Veale dedicated to creating factual entertainment series and formats for British and international markets, with a high calibre and bold editorial style over a broad range of subjects, from food and gardening to business and health.

Rockpool approached ThinCats for funding to streamline the business’s finances, as well as to further develop their offering to respond to a growing demand in the market.

Rod Henwood, Tin Roof Media: “Notwithstanding the challenges of 2020, we are proud to have traded profitably and are very much looking forward to returning to normal levels of business in 2021. We have a fantastic order book and development slate which gives us great confidence going forward. Thanks to ThinCats and Rockpool for supporting us throughout."

Stuart Thompson, Director, Regional Business Development, ThinCats: “Tin Roof Media have an impressive back catalogue of globally recognised titles, and we are very pleased to be able to support them and enable them to look towards an extremely exciting future with a whole host of programming possibilities. It has been a pleasure to work with both companies, and we look forward to seeing the new productions in the future.”

Tin Roof Media have performed well amidst the challenging conditions of 2020 and have continued to deliver successful titles adding to the already impressive back catalogue. We were extremely pleased with how ThinCats approached the refinancing and look forward to working with them as Tin Roof Media continues to grow.
