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.
Born and raised in the Hague, Bram studied film at HKU University of the Arts in Utrecht. He first gained recognition in 2005 when his graduation film “Marriage” was selected as the official opening film for the Curta Cinema Festival in Rio. This was the beginning of a long stream of awards for Bram - most notably, his short film “Sevilla” won the prestigious Golden Calf at the Netherlands Film Festival and was one of Vimeo’s “Best Of The Year”.
Bram’s natural talent for beautifully cinematic and honest story telling has made him an extremely sought after director in the world of advertising. Highlights include his award winning commercials for “Sensoor” and “Menzis”. More recently his powerful film for Fonds GehandicaptenSport, which shows the daily obstacles faced by a disabled athlete, won a Bronze Lion at Cannes 2017.
