THE EXPERTISE YOU NEED

From concept, through to post-production and delivery, Coolbox make it happen.

It’s a competitive field. If you want to play on it then it’s worth signing the best team.

We’re CREATIVE

There’s a lot of production companies out there. So go with one who can steer you through an ocean of mediocrity, tacking firmly away from the continent of ‘meh’ to lead you to an island of something truly wonderful. (That’s right. You can stop looking. You’ve found us).

How do we do this? Well, we could tell you, but we’d much rather let our work do the talking, nay singing, for us. But we like ideas; and come up with lots of them in order to find the best one that will fit with you.

 

We get STRATEGY

Sure, you want a video. But what do you want it for? Who’s the audience – internal or external? Is it a one-off messaging piece or is it going to fit into a wider campaign? What kind of tone are you going for?

These are just some of the many questions we like to go through with any client in order to try and work out how to deliver the best film for your budget – and we’re not necessarily chasing an Oscar for every film we create. But crucially we have the skills to put it all into practice.

 

We’ve got TASTE

We’ve been doing this for a long time, and all the team have been recruited for their aesthetic sensibilities (as well as being all round fabulous people). That means that we have a light touch and know when and where to apply the magic dust that brings a certain something to any film.

Taste is about knowing who to cast, how to direct, where to shoot, where to put the camera, what lenses to use, what to put in the edit, what to take out, what music to use, what look to give the film, where to apply titling… It’s a thousand different micro-decisions, born from experience, that all lean towards creating something truly special.

 

We have FUN

We’ve got the best job in the world, and we know it. Yes, we like to get the job done, on time and on budget, but we like to have a good time while doing it.

This is one of the many reasons that we’ve got clients who stick with us for years – without wanting to get too fortune cookie about it, life is a journey, so you may as well enjoy the ride.

But we are the people who know how to drive, fill the car up and tell good stories along the way. We’ll have fun, but we’ll never let you down.
