Make yourself a cup of tea and have a watch of some of our recent films.
Meet The Team.
Here's what we look like and what our mums tell people we do...
We love telling stories that deliver a message; it’s the best way of making people care about something important. We can make people care about ideas and messages they would otherwise filter out. And when people are emotionally engaged then they are much more likely to share the film and its message.

How We Work.
Commissioning a video doesn't need to be a mysterious process. Here's how we work...
Like all good things, it starts with a cup of tea.
You tell us what message you want to promote or what problem you need us to solve.
We listen intently (and drink the tea).
We brainstorm creative solutions.
We’ll present a few different ideas taking into account your brief, budget and beliefs.
Still no commitment or cost yet (barring the tea).
If you like the ideas then you commission us.
Budgets start from a few thousand pounds and are always agreed in advance.
You’re always in control of the final film.
Catsnake are more than filmmakers. They are genius storytellers who can capture the hearts and minds of an audience and motivate people not just to listen, but to take action for what they believe in.Paul Skinner, Pimp My Cause
We jumped at the chance to work with Catsnake because it is obvious from a glimpse at their films that they know exactly how to tell stories which engage and move people.Dave Titmas, Communications Manager, SHP
We expected creativity and technical know-how. What we weren't prepared for was the level of care, passion and dedication the Catsnake team showed throughout the project.
No wonder their films work! They are an inspiration.
The lovely people at Catsnake have made some wonderful films over the years, from ‘A Love Story In Milk’ to the charming ‘Theory of Everything’.Stephen Fry
I was proud to be involved with ‘Two Words’ and can’t wait to see what they produce next
Catsnake is by far and away the best production company I’ve ever worked with.Nicky Stocks, Head of Media, Sustrans
They’re a rare combination of creative and practical – they make breathtaking ideas work in real life.
Their films succeed in going viral where so many fail because they make people care
Having worked with Catsnake on a couple of Friends of the Earth films, I can honestly say that these are guys who deliver every time and in every way!Glen Colegate, Creative Director, Friends of the Earth
Catsnake really ‘get’ what we’re about and have been able to produce exciting and intrusive films for us that viewers and supporters really love – I couldn’t ask for more.
I am grateful that we had the opportunity to work with such a professional, knowledgeable, and experienced film production team.Art Trejo, Technical Sales & Marketing Manager, Panasonic
All the work performed was carefully planned, and meticulously executed, reaching far beyond the objectives. You have a friend in Panasonic, and a satisfied customer.
