Award-winning video production

engaging, shareable films

Work

We produce stylish, engaging and newsworthy films for brands.

From elaborate multi-camera productions to ‘quick and dirty’ behind-the-scenes news packages – our passion is to create highly shareable content.

We specialise in creating films that are crafted to deliver for a wide variety of channels including high impact news packages suitable for high value online sites and broadcast media.

In 2019 we launched our own production company St Marks Studios – which produced over 80+ films in 2019.

Taking Notting Hill Carnival Digital

During COVID cultural events across the country got cancelled so we teamed up with Notting Hill Carnival to help take the event digital for the first time in its history.

The multi platform campaign helped amplify Samsung’s ‘Shoot in 8K. Watch in 8K.’ marketing campaign which shone a spotlight on the superior filming and viewing resolution of Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S20 phones and QLED 8K TV range.

We brokered the partnership and are oversaw all creative and production – with all the video content shot on Galaxy 20 phones in 8K.
