to see that its films on disability

Vista does most of its work in the
live events sector and says that
“working with a variety of new and
existing FTSE top 100 clients” was a
highlight including BMW, BT, Lloyds
Banking Group, EDF Energy, TSB
“while delivering some of the largest
and most exciting projects in the

Cheerful Twentyfirst says that a highlight
for the company “was winning a five
agency competitive bid which was in a new
sector for us.” It says that although it’s
“producing more projects for our existing
clients” and also seeing “an increasing
number of opportunities to work with
new clients directly relevant to our core
business,” the overall climate “remains
tough with additional competition. All
jobs now require much more detailed
responses which in itself adds to the
company running costs.” Clients also
“expect to see more WOW! The staging has
to be more elaborate and content requires
greater use of higher end visuals.”
