Maximus Pictures UK Ltd

Maximus is the development and writing division of Our Time Productions UK Ltd, a film and television production company founded by writer and producer Philip Walker. It was born out of a desire to write and produce striking British drama that sincerely reflects the world we inhabit. More than that, we wanted to entertain you. Film is the most dynamic medium and can move people to tears or have them howling with laughter. Our actors, crew and post-production team all share one goal, to produce work that can inspire and involve you - the audience.

We had humble beginnings, writing and producing a number of film shorts, including the Orange BAFTA nominated, silent short "Looking after Mum", an anti-war drama of family loss. Shortly after that we wrote and co-produced another award-winning short, the historical drama, "Elizabeth”. A behind the scenes look at what might have happened in the inner court of Queen Elizabeth, on the eve of the Spanish Armada. This was followed by "Waiting for Liz", a co-production with Claire-Monique Martin. A poignant love story short, depicting the love affair between Elizabeth Taylor and Mike Todd, who was tragically killed a year after they married.

We realised that we need to form our own production company, Our Time Productions UK Ltd, established to produce this new work. There are a number of original scripts ready for production, including the full-length feature, “OUR TIME”. Maximus CEO Phil Walker became the lead producer of the company and is working with co-producer John Dodds and our team on the upcoming production “Our Time”. We are currently putting together a strong team of highly experienced industry professionals to produce the film.

More details on this can be found on the Our Time Productions and “Our Time” pages.

New Writing

Maximus is the home of new and original writing. Writer Phil Walker is currently working on a number of original screenplays, including “100 Days”, “Armada”, “West Highland” and “What We Did In The Eighties”, with several other titles in development.

“Our Time”

This is a powerful story of one woman’s rise from abject poverty to within a whisker of becoming the most powerful politician in the nation.
“Five women take a journey from the poorest of beginnings. Two are successful, two are left behind and one is on the brink of greatness…”

This is a heart-warming story of five East End women, who in the face of great odds, determinedly take on the challenges of modern life. A positive tale which illustrates that everyone, whatever their background, has the potential to achieve greatness, but at what cost to themselves and their loved ones. It will engage and inspire audiences worldwide. Our Time Productions UK Ltd has taken the screenplay and is in pre-production on a new feature film “Our Time”
