If you have no idea what you’re after, we’ll think of something for you. And we’ll make sure it’ll knock your audience’s socks, brogues, trousers and underwear right off.
We’ll create a detailed blueprint for how we’re going to build your brand, before we bring in the jumping castles and declare you open for business.
Every great on-screen romance begins at the desk of a lonely scriptwriter, in a remote corner of the office, hammering at the keys after everyone else has gone home. Don’t worry, we make sure they eat.
Our middle name is ‘After Effects plugin’. Okay, except for Finance where it’s actually ‘Mabel’. We’ll take care of your promo’s every last bevel, emboss and motion blur.
You know the old maxim: a picture tells a thousand words? So do our Avid editors, who are so well-versed in the art of visual storytelling, they communicate with each other through mime.
Imagine your well-edited promo as a Greek salad. Now imagine it garnished with cherry tomatoes, a splash of balsamic, seasoned to perfection and accompanied with a chilled glass of white. Yummy.
From product launches to conferences, and roadshows to rallies, we'll get your show on the road!
We’ll set the perfect score to match your promo. We’ll get especially enthusiastic if it involves melodicas.
We’re not confined to just fiddling with footage. We’ll go greenscreen, shoot live and produce on-location, as and when necessary.
This is where we’ll add all the reverb, creepy violin music and Cher-effects your heart desires.
Only need our little black book and awesome organizational skills? Big or small we're at your service
