Most people are hailing your Open Day film as the best film the University has ever had made. It had some of our teams in tears with pride!

Leon Mallet | University of Sheffield

These are brilliant – everybody who has seen them so far absolutely loves them! Well done. :)

Katie Smith | Children's Food Trust

Just a quick note to say great job on the health at work film for us – as usual I'm getting great reports about working with you!

Sam Care | British Heart Foundation

Just to let you know that the film was really well received at the Green Heroes event on Friday. The award winners were really proud, and the audience loved it.

Miles Sibley | The Conservation Volunteers

I can't thank you enough for your patience and what a great job you have done within the time and resources.

Arlene Astell | University of St Andrews

Our Availability

Although it is often the case that we can be available at short notice for your project, we are often completely booked several weeks or even months into the future. We would therefore advise getting in touch AT LEAST two months in advance of the project deadline, ideally longer. This will also mean that there is enough time to avoid rushing through the necessary pre-production, production and post-production phases.


We can also advise on industry freelancers available for hire and can ourselves work as freelance production consultants, camera operators, editors and directors.
