“Hobson Curtis provided high quality productions
for the European Space Agency. Working under tight deadlines they thoroughly mastered our brief, delivered creative solutions within budget and were very pleasant in all interactions.”
How HobsonCurtis Films works
HCF loves the craft of film production and thrive on engaging
with all kinds of people and subjects.
We are determined to find the story that lies at the heart of each film and to tell that story in a way which engages audiences on an emotional and intellectual level.
We know that videos are a major investment, and we like to work closely with our clients throughout the production process to ensure they feel their time and money has been well spent.
With your input, we will create a brief summarising your aims. This helps us to develop a proposal and budget estimate. We will then work with you on a production schedule with milestones from concept stage to final delivery.
We won’t consider the job done until you are delighted about the end results.
