We’re an award-winning British commercial and music video production company based in London.
Bob Lawrie and James Studholme set up shop in 1985 with the vision of creating an animation studio with an unconventional approach. Since then, we’ve evolved into a live-action production company with animation, design and film craft sewn into our DNA.
Over the years we’ve gained a reputation for discovering and fostering new creative talent, and proudly launched the careers of many acclaimed directors. We’ve worked hard to become one of the most respected names in commercial production, consistently producing innovative, beautifully crafted and intelligent work.
We actively avoid any semblance of a "house style", striving to nurture a diverse group of directors who work across the advertising spectrum.
We’ve seen a few awards in our day but there is no use dwelling in the past, as our best work is still ahead of us.
Reared in the arctic paradise of Canada, Max Sherman grew up on a steady diet of ice hockey and B-movies, which evolved into a strangely misplaced love of Premier League Football and Independent Cinema. His encyclopaedic knowledge of film is the clear consequence of a misspent youth.
Max is known for his offbeat brand of performance-driven comedy. He believes that the best comedy comes from the most honest place - the truth.
