We have written, produced and directed original films for television and online. Here are some of our best bits.
“It’s safe to say that having online video as part of a company’s marketing efforts is finally universally accepted.”
“One of our clients did something truly amazing

We know what makes
When Andrew Moody showed us his pioneering research on vehicle crash repairs, we knew it would make great television.
Channel 4 loved our idea and we worked closely with ITN Productions to make Dispatches: Secrets Of Your Car Insurance.
We arranged media training for Andrew so he came across brilliantly to 1.2m viewers. That was just the start. By maximising the buzz around this primetime programme we generated significant all media coverage. Industry forums went wild.
The film led directly to Andrew addressing a committee of MPs and Lords at the House of Commons and appearing as a paid speaker at a prestigious insurance conference.
He is now regularly invited to comment on legal, automotive and consumer issues by a wide range of high profile news providers.
Secrets Of Your
Dispatches: Secrets Of Your Car Insurance was first broadcast on 7 January 2013. It investigates claims that major insurers cash in when you have a crash.
