Short Films is a London based production company situated in the heart of Soho. Started with a view to offer an alternative to big multi-director companies, it has the specific aim of creating something more efficient, flexible and personal. Since its launch in 2004, Stephen Mead and Holly Hartley have concentrated on the production of innovative and evolving content throughout commercials, films and music videos.
The combination of their experience allows access to a worldwide network of established production facilities. Providing the necessary support to execute productions in different countries simultaneously. There is also a very successful association with Quad in Paris and Tempesta New York, extending the London office facilities and pool of talent. Short Films, in addition, has a growing research department whose task is to explore new avenues and bring interesting ideas to the attention of the directors. They work to develop concepts, working alongside agencies when pitching for new business. We care about keeping the standards of the visual image high and not ever making a mass-market brand look 'mass market'. In our opinion there is no better endorsement of our work than when our clients receive Effectiveness in Advertising Awards. We feel the job has been well done when the product has done well.
