Napoleon Creative was founded by Gavin Ricketts with a mission to establish a reputable film production company that clients like to work with, and equally crew liked to work for. Hundreds of films later, the company has grown to fill a light and airy studio overlooking Regents Canal near Angel. So here’s a little bit more about Napoleon Creative.
A local feel but a global reach
We’ve filmed all over the world, extensively in Europe but as far afield as India, China and the Philippines. We’ve created work for software companies, car manufacturers, confectionary brands and hair care products.
What do our Clients think about Napoleon Creative?
Here are some the lovely things our clients have said about us.
“We are all very pleased with the video. It gives glimpses into the office environment at Capgemini. You have made Ivar and Julie come across very human, in touch and thoughtful.”
“We looked for someone prepared to listen to and develop the brief. You gave accessible advice; you got what we wanted extremely quickly and delivered a great result.”
“You will be pleased to know apart from their direct messages, the team have been emailing me all morning with multiple praise over your video! The graphics are really stunning on it!”
Natural History Museum
The NC team took the time to learn exactly what we wanted and the footage shot perfectly matched the brief. They were really flexible with our amends and we are very happy with the final product.
Kate Le Feber
We are really SO pleased with the video – Fundraising are using it a lot too and it’s going to be doing the rounds at some local schools where we are planning more visits as part of an autism awareness programme.
Working with Gavin and Katherine was extremely easy. The video was first-class and the responsiveness and turnaround were quick and hassle-free.
“We worked with Napoleon Creative to bring to life a company tasting session, through a short film. The team were really friendly, understood the brief quickly and executed on schedule. They did not need a lot of creative direction, and delivered a really impressive video that captured the energy and culture of our company perfectly.
We screen the film at every pitch meeting, and it has been very effective in engaging our audience with our values and impact on our customers.How Bonnie raised £270k
Napoleon Creative did a great job turning an animation video around which I needed urgently in just under two weeks when no other animation agency wanted to take a job with that turnaround.
They embraced the challenge, were responsive and got the job done meeting our requirements. I would highly recommend them if you need a video turned around pretty quick.Read more about the FinTech Animation
Talented, efficient, professional people. We’ve worked together on all sorts of projects – filming major video series, quick talking heads, one off promos, post production emergencies, content for global campaign launches and animation series. They’re affable, innovative and unflappable in the face of tight deadlines, complex briefs and challenging personalities. Highly recommended.
Having worked with Napoleon on several animation projects I’m happy to say that these guys really know their stuff. They handle tricky briefs brilliantly, deliver on time and are always on hand to offer creative solutions – even when the client is being *cough* demanding. They are a lovely team of talented chaps and I can’t recommend them enough.
These chaps are genius. We asked Napoleon to create an animation to explain a very complicated product in a simple, smart and entertaining way. Not only did they do it, they did it on the first go. Brilliant.Watch the video here
The demo was the absolute turning point for today’s meeting. It brought the whole story alive and showed them how they can use social media within their organisation.Read more about the social media animation
Thanks so much for all the work done last week. The video looks brilliant. I have had some feedback from the client who love the video. Thank you both for the quick turn around.Read more about the project
Gavin and his team did a great job for us on an animation for a kids channel, JimbleJam.
I’m impressed by the fact that you really care about the content – it’s not just the logistics of the filming. When I work with you guys I have peace of mind because I know that I’ll have an ‘ally’ in the building of the story
Arts and Business
Napoleon Creative gave us a very competitive quote and provided an excellent service. They were responsive and maximised what could be achieve within our budget and challenging time constraints.”
These look really great. Colleagues and friends were all very impressed. You and the team have done a great job here – thank you very much!
We can see how much work has gone into this and appreciate you taking us through it in such a pro manner.
Thanks once again to you and whole team at NC.Watch Rivo’s Cybersecurity Explainer
