WELCOME TO ELSTREE FILM DESIGN

We are an award winning video production company and creative consultancy producing content that gets you noticed.

Video Production

It’s never been easier to make a video, with camera technology in your pocket and YouTube for distribution. Yet, if you want to stand out from the crowd you need outstanding creative ideas, animation and professional polish more than ever. That’s where we come in.

Workshops

Imparting knowledge and confidence is one of the most rewarding parts of what we do as video practitioners. From working with 7 year old children on cat animations to media training with cabinet members, our workshops are tailored to suit your audience.

Film Competition

We run an annual film and animation competition for children and young people. This project delivers real social impact and it’s getting bigger and better each year. Find out more about entering or becoming a corporate sponsor.

  • "Working with Elstree Film Design was a great experience for Essex Wildlife Trust. We commissioned them to produce a two minute animated video for our new Ingrebourne Valley Visitor centre. We set a tough brief to create an engaging piece of content that would appeal to our wide audience of young and old. The final animation was professional, informative and exceeded my expectations.  Rob and his team were conscientious and diligent in their work and it was a pleasure to work with them." 
    Tarnya CarterEnvironmental Projects Programme Manager, Essex Wildlife Trust
  • "We had an urgent need to get our DVD re-edited with newly filmed shots and a newly designed sleeve and what's more we needed 1500 copies replicated for distribution at a very important launch day. The team were more than capable of working under such tight deadlines with no compromise on quality - a great job delivered on time, no fuss or artistic hysterics, within budget and we got exactly what we asked for."
