Who We Are

Inspired is an award-winning film and video production company, creating effective, entertaining and engaging content, from branded content, campaign films and motion graphics to TV commercials, Virtual Reality 360 and feature films.


Described by Televisual Magazine as one of the UK’s “Top 50 Corporate Production Companies” in 2018, Inspired’s talented, award-winning creative team has a track record in delivering broadcast quality content across every format and budget level. We mix the very best talent from the world of commercials, features, corporate, TV and animation; all working together to meet client’s deadlines and exceed their expectations.

Above all, we like to inspire viewers with the films we create. Let us inspire you…

Our Approach

We approach film-making from a fresh perspective, think differently and are passionate about how your film is perceived by your target audience.

We don’t believe in creating content for content’s sake. Video has become an essential marketing tool, but it needs to be effective, relevant and connect with the audience. It is essential to know who is being targeted and how this relates to the finished film – all films must be created with an end game in mind.

Whether the goal is to increase sales, raise profile, share knowledge, provide production services or simply capture essential footage on B-roll, Inspired Films delivers. No task is too big or small. You want to interview a CEO in a boardroom? No problem. Some filming in a remote African desert? Been there. Hanging off the side of a helicopter? Done that. We’ve filmed in 15 countries, delivered in a dozen languages. And we have the visas and bruises as proof.

“Working with Inspired was fantastic. Their ideas were innovative and forward thinking. The team were always highly professional and easy to work with and they were particularly considerate when dealing with difficult situations. The film was completed within a short time frame and my experience was all very positive. I strongly recommend them.”

Samantha MannGuys & St Thomas’ Hospital

“From the beginning, Inspired were different. They were the people I called first, because they were the only ones who really seemed to get what we wanted. From the first stage to the last, they were professional, creative, enthusiastic and realistic – about what we could achieve and how best to do it and were very encouraging of our desire to do something different. To quote one staff member, “our new school video makes my heart swell with pride.”  So that can’t be bad”

Fran CookeCroydon High School

“Inspired came recommended and we could not be more pleased with the connection. Professional and thoroughly committed to our school during filming. They coordinated everything with an expert eye for detail and ability to enable us to shine and emphasize our strengths. Their flexibility and the on-going consultation process was much appreciated and we felt that we were working with the very best”

Kim BurgessBritish School of Brussels

“Working with Inspired was an incredibly easy and enjoyable process. It was the first project of its type that we had ever undergone as an organisation and they helped us through each stage. The fact that we were all in communication from beginning to end was invaluable and the finished product surpassed everyone’s already high expectations. I have already recommended Inspired to other organisations.”

Amy RyanOrthopaedic Research UK

“Working with Inspired has been a pleasure. They are a friendly team and always willing to go the extra distance to ensure the quality of the work remains high. From the initial meetings it was obvious they had creative ideas and seeing these ideas develop into a film has been a remarkable experience.”

Khus MiahCass Business School

“From the start I felt confident that Inspired understood what we were aiming to achieve. The crew were sensitive to working in an intensive performing arts environment and the wealth of material was edited very imaginatively. Staff and pupils have been delighted with the resulting promo, particularly how it seemed to stand out from standard school videos. I would have no hesitation in working with Inspired again and also in recommending them to other organisations.”

The Royal Anniversary Trust commissioned a set of short films from Inspired Films to convey the essence of the varied work honoured in The Queen’s Anniversary Prizes scheme.  We were delighted with the results, which testify to the detailed attention and professionalism behind their production.”
