So who are Creative Colony?

We’re an award-winning team of creatives with a wealth of visual marketing experience and a passion for using our skills to help drive change.

And what exactly do we offer?

We provide a surprisingly rich mix of film and photography related services that continues to evolve.

See what we’ve created through our Corporate Film service and our Community Film Unit… and hear for yourself what clients think of our team.

We’re that passionate about film making and photography that we decided to start teaching it. Most notably at our Surrey Film Academy. We also enable clients to develop their own filming skills and competency via services like “You Film It, We Edit It” and Smartphone Video Support.

How do we work?

Using a blend of traditional techniques and cutting-edge technology, we can provide you with initial creative concepts right through to script-writing, filming, editing and production.

We’re customer-focused and outcome-oriented. Whatever the project, we’re ‘there for you’ - often at the end of a phone - and always guided by certain strong principles, beliefs and commitments. (Scroll down to see Our Ethos.)

And why are we here in the first place?

“I STARTED THE CREATIVE COLONY IN 2011 BECAUSE
I WANTED TO HELP PEOPLE GROW USING VIDEO,
WHILST ALSO CREATING MORE OPPORTUNITIES
FOR THE NEXT GENERATION.”

MATTHEW JOBLIN. Founder & Managing Director, The Creative Colony

 

OUR ETHOS

We believe in…

> Making a difference. We want to use our skills and ideas to enable positive change and to create opportunities for disadvantaged communities where possible.

> Using the economy to have a positive social impact. We reinvest a percentage of the profits from our corporate work to deliver free film-making training to disadvantaged young people who want to break into our industry.

> Youth opportunities.  Realising your dreams should not be limited by either your age or experience. We champion opportunities for young professionals and young people
wherever possible.

> Challenging the status quo: We believe in creating models and using techniques that push boundaries, challenge standard practice and create unique solutions.

> Making filming more widely accessible. Particularly to those also looking to make a positive difference, or who are disadvantaged, or are restricted by limited budgets.

> Developing our own capacity to create great films. We delight clients, not just with a final product that has the desired impact, but also in the way we collaborate to get there.
