What we’re working on now

What we are working on
We are working with Oxford University’s Mathematical Institute to explain how mathematicians set about creating models of the world around us.

We want to help the audience see past the language barrier of academic mathematics to understand that these researchers are seeking truth, beauty and elegance in their work…

“Hobson Curtis delivered on all fronts, with creative ideas for filming and graphics… The end result is a quality, informative video that meets our criteria and our budget.”

How we work

We love the craft of film production and thrive on engaging
with all kinds of people and subjects.

Creative

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.

Collaborative

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.

Professional

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.

Committed

We won’t consider the job done until you are delighted about the end results.

Who we are

HobsonCurtis is a partnership between
James Hobson and Florence Corvez Curtis.

James’ background is in video editing for broadcast television and he has a track record of factual and science programming for UK and international broadcasters. He has illustrated passionate essays from Richard Dawkins and Stephen Hawking, delivered action packed explosion-fests for Discovery, and even spent three months embedded in the gardens of Blenheim Palace.

James has also spent time engaging with non-film makers, creating community video and installation films, and relishes helping people to tell their own stories and achieve their ambitions.

He has a keen sense of editorial balance, visual creativity and a drive to achieve excellence in all his finished work.

James diverse experience of video production helps to turn clients’ bright ideas into polished finished films.

Florence’s career started in factual broadcasting. She worked at MTV Europe and for indies such as Uden Associates (Channel 4) and Rooftop Productions (FiveTV).

Florence focused on producing and directing documentary films for international NGOs such as Christian Aid, Oxfam and Television Trust for the Environment drawing on her international upbringing and language skills – French & Spanish. Her work took her as far afield as Cambodia, Burkina Faso and Brazil.

She worked as a producer/ director on ‘Rooted’, a Children’s BAFTA nominated series for FiveTV and successfully managed an EU funded multi-media project on development issues.

Florence’s meticulous approach to writing, directing and planning ensures successful productions.

Hobson Curtis have two invaluable skills. Firstly they understand their business – they make great films. Secondly they understand our business. They make great films about science.”
