Stills and Motion make film and photography.
As a core team, we regularly work alongside other professional makers, thinkers and doers in film, photography and other industries. We adopt a documentary approach to each content project that we are involved with. Together with collaborators we employ curiosity and integrity in identifying, crafting and delivering images and film that inspire and resonate.
Our projects are made in partnership with agencies, brands, charities, publishers and sometimes just for ourselves. The content packages we produce are made up of short films, photography, or at times just a bank of footage. We are happy to work on smaller bespoke projects, and also larger content banks.
We take projects from a rough idea to the finished piece, but we are equally happy to get involved at intermediate stages of the process. We are able to carry out post production in-house, and at other times call on trusted collaborators. We are nimble but when needed are able to scale up to meet the demands of a bigger content project. We own medium format and super 35 stills cameras, a two-camera super 35 cine camera kit, lenses, gimbals and a whole host of extras; from time to time we use rental houses to get special pieces of equipment.
