About The Company

In short, Proud Motion are a full service production company, but the long version is that we are very creative people who offer everything from the spark of an idea to high end video & TV content and everything in between. We create content that is full of consideration for detail and bursting to be seen and we help businesses put ideas in motion.

Ideas are what make us different. A carefully written script, precise choice of music, colouring, balance, timing, casting, location, the list goes on…, is all essential to make your production memorable. Whether it’s a TV campaign, a cinema ad, an event or an overview or documentary, we film and edit outstanding content and manage all pre and post production.

The best producers pick the best team for the job. We’ve been doing this for a long time and are privileged to have worked on some of the best sets and with the best crews in the business. We hand pick talent from make-up to voice artists and we have a pool of the best suppliers who partner with us to bring reinforcements when needed – we are consciously light, fast and responsive and proud to have a solid industry reputation and a punch that no-one sees coming.

Our story

David and Jill started Proud Motion in 2012. After almost 12 fantastic years of life-on-the-go in the Film & TV industry and Jill’s career as a Marketing Director, they became parents and the ‘Proud’ era was born. Proud of family, achievements, adventures and people around them – and full of creativity, Proud Motion was established to build a company that’s core focus is creativity, integrity and good times.

Our approach

Combining years of production, marketing and business experience for national and international brands, we keep our approach simple. We have fantastic in-house talent who are always hands on and who take care of everything a project requires. We are confident and we approach projects ready to make everyone win. We want to see you winning so we do everything in our power to help make that happen.

Our approach is to make great content achievable for any project of any size and to put eye-catching ideas in motion in ways you never considered. We take the lead because that’s what we are here for, but we will work with you every step of the way to deliver a powerful tool you can be proud of, that is memorable, compelling and demands attention.

We are proud of our business approach and we don’t stop working until our clients are proud too.
