Posh Boy Doc


We’re delighted to share our documentary project co-directed by our founder Kevin Lee Brown and Caswell Coggins

‘POSH BOY – Fighting for a Future’ is a portrait of struggle and aspiration, against the odds, for four young boxers from London’s inner-city boroughs.

Production started in 2019 with the original intention of making a long form Documentary. Mother Brown Films supports the project, providing production, crew, cameras, kit and post-production support from our in-house facility.

But then Coronavirus hit and everything changed. The pandemic didn’t just pose a threat to our film production; it also rendered the communities at the heart of POSH BOY in real difficulty. They were at risk of losing everything. 

We didn’t hesitate. We’d been so inspired by the characters we’ve followed that we wanted to respond to the crisis in a decisive way. With the positive endorsement of the community, we decided to press on with production and began to share our existing material through a series of web-based short films, releasing two films per week on Instagram. 

We mixed the extensive content we’d already captured pre-Covid with lockdown footage taken via group chats and self-shot diaries. As lockdown gradually eased, we’ve been back filming. Working under strict industry Covid guidelines, we’re continuing to film new stories as they unfold.

To date we’ve released over 25 short episodes, via Instagram, and the drama continues.

We’re so grateful to the team behind POSH BOY, which continues to expand as the project grows. They’ve consistently given their time, talent and total commitment not only to the production but also to our films, communities and their futures.

We’re really proud of what we’ve achieved so far on POSH BOY and would love for you to follow as the story continues to unfold. @Poshboydoc on Instagram.
