Documentary Producer

New Channel Media

New Channel Media is the documentary and multimedia production company established by Michael Fox.

New Channel Media aims to bring new awareness of topics that miss mainstream news and can be by-passed by the latest technology.  This will be achieved by designing, producing, and distributing content in film, photography, print, and multimedia formats that is compelling, entertaining, challenging, and "in your face."  We are happy to work with non-profit organizations, commercial sponsors, and philanthropists to ensure maximum coverage of humanitarian and social issues. As well as developing an evolving medium for sustaining the value of visual journalism, New Channel Media continues to plan, produce, and distribute important documentary content via the One Life Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to effectively representing those in need, to an empowered global audience.
