About Us

Why us?

Because we’re Nicer.  Faster.  Leaner.  Better.

You CAN have it all…

Nicer

A collective of friends who have met over years of experience in the industry and have been cherry-picked for their approachable, willing, smart, reliable nature. We all share a lot of expertise and are extremely well connected – we’ve found a little bit of goodwill goes a long way.

Faster

We have a nimble, flexible approach to production. We pride ourselves on putting bespoke, smart solutions together so we always deliver on the most challenging brief – whether its putting together a production spanning 18 countries and involving 800+ cast and crew, shooting a Hollywood actress for a beauty spot or quickly booking a 2x man self shooting unit for an interview.

Leaner

Our business model allows us to create cost efficiencies that set us apart from other production companies. We shrink and grow in-between projects, we don’t have posh offices in town which generate huge overheads and we never waste money on unnecessary extras. We believe in sharing these savings with our partners – both our clients and our teams – in a fair and honest culture where everyone benefits.

Better

We really believe you can have it all…we should be able to enjoy what we do everyday and make miracles happen within the ever-tightening budget and time constraints that modern business demands.  This should never be to the detriment of creative output or production quality, and our model facilitates this by ensuring we have the very best people for the job with the necessary talent and tenacity to make it happen.

What We Do

We specialise primarily in moving image – by way of short form, branded content, commercials, idents and music promos. We love the odd documentary, too.

Our creative network stands at the core of our offering. We start by addressing a project’s needs and build bespoke teams to meet its requirements.

As well as finding traditional experts for our projects, we believe that sometimes an unusual combination of creative folk produces the strongest results. For example, we have been known to couple a graphic designer with a live events director or a photographer with a film DoP.

In short: whatever needs making, we will happily and nimbly sort it.

Mali cut her teeth at the prestigious Done and Dusted offices in London. She was brought in to co-ordinate a shoot that was meant to last 10 weeks, to be shot in 10 countries. It ended up lasting for 9 months across 18 countries.

Mali’s tenacity, calmness, can-do attitude and attention to detail enabled the (sometimes) daunting tasks of moving people, equipment and money around the globe to run smoothly and efficiently.

She went on from there to freelance for a while – working on a variety of productions ranging from Nintendo commercials to a stint at BBC’s Casualty as a Production Co-ordinator.

In 2008 Mali was hired by IMG’s in-house commercials arm and left 5 years later as a Producer. She looked after various award-winning projects from the £5k-£500k range, working with clients such as The Premier League, HSBC, Wimbledon, Rolex, Nike, Sainsbury’s, Sime Darby and Channel 4. Mali really learnt her craft here, getting the opportunity to work with different directors and a high turnover of production.

Headhunted by Rankin in 2013 to help with his film department, Mali enjoyed incredible success with projects including Miley Cyrus, Mr Hudson, Heidi Klum, Missoni and Prada.

She then went on to spend some time with top fashion agency Art Partner and has produced multiple campaigns with iconic photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot – delivering moving image and stills work for the likes of Gucci, Vogue, La Perla, Lancome and Stella McCartney.

She has been quite the busy bee.

Dolly’s introduction to production was as a youngster on the last series of Spitting Image. She originally worked as a puppet co-ordinator (a sort of 2nd AD) and was promoted to running the show’s workshop. It was a solid foundation for pulling people together to make things – often at a moment’s notice.

After a stint at Sydney Film School, Dolly returned to London and was engaged in a permalance capacity at Channel 4’s creative services department (which went on to form 4Creative). The work was hugely variable in terms of size, budget and personnel and, like Mali, she really learnt her craft here.

Then followed some regular work with Viacom, with Dolly looking after multiple commercial campaigns for brands airing on MTV and Nickelodeon channels. Clients varied from Nike and Adidas, to government departments wishing to promote Apprenticeships, to sweetened yoghurt drinks.

After some years of building her reputation as a highly respected Producer specialising in commercials, short films and branded content, Dolly was approached by Done & Dusted to produce a music promo. The final brief was to shoot in 18 countries, using 17 directors and to sing in 16 languages. 1 year later Dolly effortlessly delivered a record-breaking 12min music video and launched it at Cannes Film Festival (the Hanging Gardens of Babylon being the only wonder of the world she didn’t manage to fit in).

Since then Dolly has continued working with established commercials outfits and agencies such as Karmarama, Kream, Fallon, Wieden & Kennedy, AMV BBDO, ITN Productions, ITV and Mustard – specialising in mass production and multi-delivery. Overseeing the output of large volumes of content, Dolly has successfully produced projects for many established brands including Westfield, Ann Summers, Nokia, Nike, Nintendo (over 80x spots), Paddy Power, Gatorade and Capital FM.
