From concept through writing and storyboarding, all proven creative communication techniques are applied to ensure an attention-grabbing, captivating and bear-huggingly memorable finished product. In short, an immensely powerful tool to have in any business armory.
What’s the Big Idea?
You believe you need a video, but do you know who you’re speaking to, what’s likely to grab their attention and then hold onto it? Our creative director is known for narrowing down the target audiences, carving out strong selling propositions, arresting attention with Big Ideas then taking the reader, viewer or listener on a journey to conviction and action. He has been applying these skills for Disneyland Paris, Dimplex, Renault, Mercedes-Benz and many SME’s and market leading businesses.
The ability to captivate an audience by telling them a story is one of the most powerful ways of winning new friends of an organisation or brand. Whether communicating a brand, product attributes or information, we manage and craft the project from storyboard and script all the way to the final cut. Our experienced producers will ensure that your message or story is presented with the style and tone that accurately projects your organisations ethos and values to your target audiences.
The serious business of animation
Since the earliest cartoons, animation has captured our imaginations and entertained the boots off us. It wasn’t long before the serious business of commerce and education caught on to the communication power of this specialist craft. It has evolved to become a perfect medium for making the complicated easy to digest and the ordinary to appear extraordinary. Our creatively blessed animators produce highly crafted, highly watchable films for all sorts of purposes from the clear explanation and demonstration of processes, breathing life into statistics or dramatising the virtues of a product.
Our team are constantly researching and investing in the latest technology. Our CAA licensed drone pilots are not only trained operators but are equally skilled and experienced camera operators. They can capture the scale of your operation, excite an audience with aerial views and surprising angles creating movie experiences that no other filming methods can achieve. We are fully equipped and trained to film underwater and are now work with leading-edge virtual reality technology which is already paving the way for the future of multi-media for use across the world’s industries and commerce.

Top Of The Pops
We were happy to work with both UMC and BBC to create this short but sweet animation for Top Of The Pops. Although the animation is only 20 seconds long, it highlights 5 characters and 5 generations of music. The purpose of this animation was to create something that Top Of The Pops could use across their social platforms showing their fans how their logo, branding and style has changed over the years to stay fresh for their audience. UMC wanted us to capture the correlation between the evolution of Top Of The Pops and how the devices used to play or stream music have developed over the years along side one another.
