How Long AnimationNapoleon Creative was founded in 2006 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. We like to think we’ve achieve that!

Gavin’s background was in documentary making for the BBC, so our first projects were films. However, animation featured in the titles of our films right from the beginning, so it was inevitable that in 2009 we would produce our first animated explainer video. Many, many more have followed!

We’ve now produced literally hundreds of films, and the company has grown from Gavin’s spare room to a light and airy studio overlooking Regents Canal between Angel and Haggerston.

We have a small, core permanent staff, then flex with freelancers, depending on the creative needs of each project.

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!

Studio Hours

Our studio hours are 9.30 – 5.30 Monday to Friday, though there’s usually someone in the office 8.30 – 6.30. We also work outside these times when working with overseas clients to accommodate the time difference.

You can call us on 020 7739 8500.

We have a meeting room which we welcome clients to use for their Discovery Workshops.
