Mike Coggan

Video Head

My passion and enthusiasm for the moving image has derived from my preoccupation and passion with film.

Storytelling is absolute key in the capture of audience hearts and minds, immediately followed by all the intricacies and secret squirrels of professional cinematography, lighting and sound design.

As we now see brands like Estrella and Volvo producing television-like series, the big ads and brand videos are headed in a direction that I studied long before working on brand content. Very convenient!

My own approach to video and animation is simple: attention to every detail but without it dulling my ability create throughout.

I won’t film a thing if I’m not clear about how it will look, sound and feel. This has meant deep study of the craft, setting time aside to watch brand videos, films, music videos and documentaries ad-nauseam for inspiration – whether it be a title style, interview framing or complete cinematic look or theming.

Our animation expertise perfectly complements our live footage knowledge and skills is the post-production crafting; whether rendering in a covering of fog, adding subtle rays of light or boosting that spirit-lifting sunset to build a dramatic punch or brush in a heart-warming appeal.
