WE LOVE WHAT WE DO

For the last 25 years, we’ve been helping a diverse range of clients harness the power of video, to successfully deliver their messages with impact.

Our clients trust us to devise tailor made approaches that achieve the results they need – whether it’s for product or service promotion, building brand awareness and loyalty, or training or communicating with employees.

We love a challenge and we’re passionate about bringing ideas to life. And we have the experience, knowledge, skills, and the resources, to make it happen. We attend to every little detail along the way – from planning and scripting through to filming and editing.

We like to build long lasting relationships with our clients – by saying “yes it can be done”, and going that extra mile to achieve the best results.

It’s great when a client says “… you always understand exactly what we need … we treat you as part of our team because you behave that way … we can trust you to deliver … you make our life easier …” . 

WE HAVE ALL THE RESOURCES IN HOUSE

Based near Guildford in Surrey, we have all the resources in-house and provide a complete package – from script and storyboard development, through to filming and editing; for producing videos, animations, interactive content, and TV commercials. We work with a range of experienced voice artists, and we have an extensive music library.

Everyone in our team has years of collective experience in their specific field of expertise, and we can bring in other specialists to suit the requirements of a particular project.

Our neighbours, Realm create Computer Generated Illustrations, CG fly-throughs, and VR. We often work together to create the component parts for a video. We created their promotional video as well.
