There are five tastes: sweet, salt, sour, bitter and umami. Umami is the fifth and youngest taste: it was discovered late as 1908, many centuries later than the other four. Nevertheless it turns out to be a very important taste: it amplifies the other tastes.
Umami Media is a young production company founded by Wim Boven, Niek Teunissen and Casper Eskes. We have our own way of producing. We create films, series and tv shows that are just different from what you saw before. Not a budget brand, but the premium quality version. With a clear focus on the target audience.
We know that with the mix of the right people, ambition, efficiency and creative flexibility everything is possible. The combination of the right tastes. We amplify these tastes and make sure its creation is greater than the simple sum of its parts. We once started with huge dreams and minimal means, and we still produce in the same way. Because now the means are growing, the dreams grow too. We always get the most out of it. And a little more.
