We love telling stories using film. Whether it is a simple interview or a complex shoot in multiple locations, our in-house team have extensive experience filming around the world and in different sectors. We are more than point and shoot and can look after everything from concept to creation. That means initial ideas, scripting and storyboarding (if needed), interviewing, motion graphics and subtitles. We can also help with translations.
We can create short explainers, four-part series and even animated epics. Our animators, designers and illustrators have a range of different styles, including illustrative, graphical or character. Our animations are often used in place of film to explain complex subjects or to offer an engaging alternative to capture people’s attention. We also blend motion graphics into our films to bring them to life or get across key messages.
Design and Illustration
Simple design often makes the most impact. We like our work to be thoughtful and reasoned with great ideas at the heart. Design is often the starting point for all of our projects, whether it is a storyboard for an animation; initial designs for a campaign; or motion graphics for a film. We like to make sure our designs can be used across a range of assets, whether digital or print.
We use photography in lots of our work. Great photography is often a cost-effective way to build campaigns, keep websites feeling fresh and give people a real sense of what you do. You will never find us using stock photography in our work, even if it’s an image of a mobile phone. We would much rather take it, meaning no one else has it and provide the rights so our clients can use it wherever they need.
We are at our best when we can come up with brilliant ideas to get campaigns started and bring in a number of our skills. Whether that’s blending film and motion graphics; photography and design; or other services such as podcasts to engage audiences.
More about film
While we regularly explore the latest equipment – we have a drone and various gimbles and rigs as well as a range of cameras, lenses and lighting – we are at our best when it comes to ideas. We really love talking to people and letting them share their story. We have interviewed everyone from the intern to world leaders. Our background in journalism means that we understand what makes a good story and even the most challenging interviewees leave with a smile (mostly). Constraint is the friend of creativity and while it might sound strange, we relish a tight budget and timeline to bring out the best in our team. We regularly film and turn around the edit within a week or quicker. But like everyone, we would prefer to have as much time as possible!
More about animation
We also create shorts, GIFs, animated screens and posters and a range of other elements to help build an animation into a campaign. We like to be part of projects from the start where we can offer ideas, full illustrated storyboards, scripting and we even have two professional voiceover artists, which provides flexibility and help us with those quick turnarounds.
More about Design and Illustration
Several of our in-house team also blend illustration into our design work, which means we can create a suite of assets in a range of styles.
More about Photography
While we can shoot a range of imagery, we prefer to focus on documentary or reportage photography. Think one or two days capturing real people in real locations rather than staging shots. We do provide headshots but we recommend natural imagery, where we spend time with people rather than a quick flash. We also build global photo libraries for businesses including rights to the imagery. It is a cost-effective way to have assets that can be used for a range of purposes.
