Producer Simon Richardson says the past year hasn’t been too bad: “Dare I say it, but this year has been somewhat easier than last. New clients are emerging and, although budgets remain lower than pre-October 2008, for the most part, most of our clients are still in business and still keen to make films of one sort or another.” Over the past year, 15% of Proudfoot’s turnover came from television production, 15% from new media, while 70% was derived from corporate. Its corporate clients included Sony Bravia, Rolex and Nike. “Most organisations are aware that content is crucial these days,” adds Richardson.
