WHO WE ARE

JIM FRANKS is a BAFTA-nominated TV producer and director with over 30 years experience of film-making for TV and the web. 

Having begun by cutting his teeth as a cameraman on nuclear submarines, Jim worked his way up through the world of film and TV as a cameraman and editor. He became a successful director-producer working on documentaries (such as David Attenborough’s natural history programmes) and science and current affairs programmes (including Equinox and A Week in Politics) for the BBC, Channel 4 and others. Along the way he also worked on music videos and the Rolling Stones’ Steel Wheels tour.

Now that the world is starting to move away from terrestrial TV to the web and new technology makes film-making a practical, affordable option for all, Jim works with a much wider range of clients. He specialises in making films for researchers in academia and education, charities and NGOs. 

Having worked at the leading edge of new and innovative technology throughout his career, Jim can help you take advantage of new media opportunities - digital, multi-channel, social media - to get your message out faster, maximise your reach and minimise costs.

FRANCES STEVENSON is, amongst other things, an award-winning humanitarian aid worker (in her case the award is an MBE). She has 25 years experience of research and writing, strategy and policy development and programme management. She negotiated her way through conflicts in Bosnia, Rwanda and Sri Lanka with Médecins Sans Frontières and others - not to mention several years as a trek leader in the Himalayas.

We work with a network of tried and tested freelancers and specialist sub-contractors. This enables us to scale up for larger projects and deliver the same excellent quality.
