We have worked with multinationals, government departments, HRH The Prince of Wales, international broadcasters, theatres, charities, tech start ups and individuals. We specialise in creating striking and intimate film-led campaigns and our clients all have one thing in common: an interesting and timely story to tell.
Our specialty is in communicating often complex issues to stakeholders, ultimately through putting faces and stories to the issues at hand.
