Imagination says that given current economic conditions “it’s unsurprising that we’re seeing more challenging budgets and needing to exercise tighter control than ever over production costs. Lead times have also become shorter.” But the company says that despite this, it’s been “privileged to work on some great briefs in the past 12 months” that have included the challenges of “shooting on a rollercoaster and recreating a snowstorm in summer.”

Jack Morton’s head of moving image, Adam Norris picks out the Nokia INAUSTIN film and winning the IVCA Grand Prix as particular highlights of 2011. He says the speed of change within communications means hiring talent could be the biggest challenge in the near future. “Our work is diversifying and evolving all the time and we need really smart creatives who can think beyond their individual discipline. Design and moving image are merging into a single discipline which goes beyond the traditional 16:9 screen.”

2011’s big challenge, says DRP, was “clients expecting more for less, and ever decreasing notice periods/deadlines.”

New Moon saw success with the South Korean Winter Olympics bid film and remains bullish about 2012. “Communications are fundamental whether organisations are speaking to internal or external audiences,” says Barnaby Logan. “So the fact that we are potentially heading into recession makes no difference and there remain plenty of opportunities in the UK and abroad.

Radley Yeldar’s Dean Beswick says the past year has featured “surprisingly good budgets “ with lots of interest “in our integrated consultancy.” He says the outlook is very positive “for us as we now have a strong portfolio of integrated clients. However I’m not so sure about the standalone production companies who work in corporate documentary-type area.”

Pretzel says that despite tough economic conditions and falling budgets “clients seem to be a little more adventurous in the creative approaches they are willing to entertain in their corporate communications. Commissioning clients are getting younger, savvy with our industry and more at home with approaches akin to broadcast and advertising.”

“Much better – more clients and commissions out there. However, they still all want more for less,” is Jacaranda md, Katy Eyre’s take on the past year. She reckons the challenges will be the European and global economy. “Will returning clients of 2011 decide to give 2012 a miss? Will banks lend money against new business plans and investment in new technology?”
