We have won over 100 international film and television awards… and yet the next idea is the one that excites us the most.
Truly outstanding work involves blood, sweat and tears... and passion. Simply put, we love what we do.
Few things excite us more than the latest technology, concepts and trends in both video production and new media. Yet ultimately it is our skill as communicators that sets us apart.

We'd love to hear from you, so feel free to get in touch.
We are based in a Georgian house on the quayside of the estuary township of Laugharne (nine letters, one syllable – 'Larn') in Carmarthenshire, South Wales.
Laugharne's most famous resident was Welsh poet, broadcaster and writer Dylan Thomas. He dubbed it, '...the strangest town in Wales' and '...a black magical bedlam by the sea.' He wasn't wrong. The novelist Richard Hughes said Laugharne was, '...a fairytale.'
He wasn't wrong either. This is a curious and inspiring place where imaginations remain untethered, and ideas burst into life.
