This London company’s operations span the whole life cycle of a film, from production and international sales to theatrical and home distribution. It was set up in 2012 by Will Clarke, 46, who founded the film distributor Optimum Releasing in 1999 and then sold it to Studiocanal in 2006, and Andy Mayson, 53. Altitude co-produced the 2014 thriller Big Game, starring Samuel L Jackson, and executive-produced 47 Metres Down, the most successful independent film of the year in the US. Because of the volatile nature of film sales, revenue fell to £10.9m in 2017, but is forecast to rise to £18m in 2018, when the firm plans to expand into TV.
