Our ethos is to invest in the spirit of collaboration – so we work with each production to create what they need.

We draw upon our experience across many media – theatre, film, motion capture, VR – to problem-solve and devise new techniques for story-telling, with the flexibility to innovate and deliver as required.

Ultimately, it is about finding the best way to realise the artistic vision unique to each project.
