Originally based by the George pub in Wardour Street London UK, our team has made animatics since the early days of test films, we designed one of the very first computer controlled rostrum cameras recording onto awful u-matic video tape, then awkward 'one inch' and then component betacam , a brave face was put on through the painful cost of the quantel/SGI years and things finally began to stabilise when the mac pro was suddenly producing broadcast ready material.
As imaging technology developed the company has kept pace; we were the original studio in the UK to use Cosa AfterEffects for animatic production with agency teams in 1993 and have stayed at the forefront of computer video technique as it has developed.
In the early 90s we moved near to the Coach and Horses in Great Marlborough Street in what is currently Sony headquarters and by the mid 90s we were opposite the legendary Dog & Duck in Frith Street with three edit/animation suites and a live action camera studio.
A couple of years with a satellite office and limited public house access in Canary Wharf came to an end around 2002 and we then had fifteen years solid graft in Frith St until 2017 ; downsizing to Greek St where we still have a nice bolt hole near the Three Greyhounds.
The future seems to be unattended/remote sessions at pre arranged prices which is fine, but the beer consumption has suffered since the pandemonium!
