Clients DC100 Concept Car Reveal for Land Rover; Ford Evos Concept Car Reveal for Ford; Ford Fiesta ST Brand Film for Ford   

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.”

3 THE EDGE PICTURE COMPANY

Md Phil Blundell Tel 020 7836 6262

Md Dale Parmenter Tel 01299 250 531
Clients Monthly Briefing for Sainsburys; Connect for Thomas Cook; Corporate Film for Worcester Bosch

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

=7 NEW MOON
www.new-moon.co.uk
Exec producer Barnaby Logan Tel 020 7479 7010
Clients PyeongChang 2018 Bid Campaign for PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Bid; This is Home for Royal Bank of Scotland; Change Agents for Microsoft

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.


=7 RADLEY YELDAR

Mds Andrew Gibbs and Carl Radley Tel 020 7033 0700 
Clients  Global acquisition films for Pearson Group plc; Biomass for Drax; Follow my Future for Ernst and Young

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.”

9 PRETZEL FILMS
www.pretzelfilms.com
Md PJ Bickford
Tel 020 7580 9595
Clients Inspiration films for Accenture; Scanner promos for Canon; Inspire for Balfour Beatty

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.”

=10 JACARANDA

Founder and Md Katy Eyre Tel 020 8741 9088
Clients Behind-the-scenes Olympic Sponsorship TV commercial for BP; The Barclays Chairman’s Awards and Woman of the Year Awards 2011 for Barclays; ASOS London Fashion Week for ASOS

“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?”
