The wider team
We have a pool of directors, journalists, editors and freelance talent who enable us to deliver to brief and produce high value films.
Each year we welcome interns into the team. It's a great way to offer undergraduates hands-on experience in a production company, to share our experience and knowledge and to benefit from their energy and enthusiasm in the office.
