Funded in 2014 by Fumi Gomez and Juan Echenique, Horatio Productions is a company specialised in science fiction, genre pieces and new writing for theatre and film.

Horatio Productions are members of the UK Science Festivals Network and count with the collaboration of King's College London and the charity Collage Works.


Horatio Productions has created the plays H7 (International Playwriting Festival 2014, 2015), Red Button (Cockpit Theatre 2015, Camden Fringe 2016, Edinburgh Fringe 2017), ReGen (Arts Council England Funded, The Space 2018, Pleasance Theatre 2019), Antarctica (Arts Council England funded, programmed for Pleasance Theatre 2020, but cancelled due to COVID restrictions). Their newest work is CHAPEA (Pleasance Theatre 2023).

They are also the creators and organisers of the Science Fiction Theatre Festival, the biggest of its kind in the United Kingdom. The festival ran for two editions (2018, The Space Theatre and 2019, Pleasance Theatre), and was programmed for a third season in 2020 at Pleasance Theatre, but sadly had to be cancelled due to the global pandemic.


Horatio Productions founded the Making Films guerrilla filmmaking festivals in 2017. The festval ran for six consecutive season. During that time, Fumi Gomez and Juan Echenique curated over 60 short films, producing 10 short films themselves. 

Their short film Hot Water was part of the Colchester Film Festival selection, 2019. Their short film Forever Hold Your Peace was finalist in the 1st Monthly Film Festival, and part of the selection of the Amsterdam Lift-Off Film Festival.

They have also produced the feature films Coffee Run (2018) and Message Sent (2020).

Right now they are developing the feature film Alice and Bob, and working on several TV and Film projects.


The company is specialised in new writing for science fiction theatre, with a strong focus on science. Their goals are:

- To be a bridge between the worlds of science and arts.
- To divulge the work of scientists and collaborate with their outreach programmes.
- To create an accessible film and theatre, where all types of audience can be represented.
- To create working opportunities for BAME, female, non-binary, trans and working class artists, building the necessary platforms to put their work in front of an audience.

The core members of Horatio have been working together since 2008, both in Spain and in the UK. Horatio Productions is formed by Director Fumi Gomez, Actor/Writer Juan Echenique and Producer Yuki Asami.
