How we got our name

13 August 10

Years ago, my wife stumbled across the longest, and most unusual, name she’d ever come across. It was that of an English leather merchant and Puritan preacher, Unless-Jesus-Christ-Had-Died-For-Thee-Thou-Hadst-Been-Damned Praise-God Barebone.

At the time, I was producing a film for BBC Arena about the role of artists in war. My new production company needed a name and Barebone Films was born. When setting up this press, I decided to resurrect the name, christened after the man who gave his surname to the Barebone’s Parliament of the English Commonwealth of 1653.

Welcome to BBB. And don’t worry. We’re a lot friendlier than our brimstone-eyed namesake!
