A fantastic start to our new financial year, as we’ve found out we’ve landed a Top 20 spot in the Televisual list of UK Corporate Production Companies, in our 20th year of business.
The industry renowned Corporate 50 ranks the best corporate production companies in the UK as determined by a questionnaire sent to film industry professionals; who share their highlights of the year, as well as projects they’ve recently worked on. Top Banana made the cut by discussing recent work with Taylor Wimpey, Topps Tiles and Loqate, whilst also submitting information about turnover, staff and work delivery.
The Televisual also use the submission as an opportunity to ask corporate production companies about changes and trends in the industry. Fears over Brexit and resources came up top in this year’s survey as most agencies expressed concerns over clients changing budgets and holding back ambitious plans whilst they wade through the uncertain Brexit tides.
Top Banana however sees the possibilities, along with others from the top 20 list, in the increasing importance of video to companies. They’re no longer a novelty feature and we recognise that film is incorporated into every project – from social media posts to campaigns. We’re slowly becoming creative partners to businesses as opposed to one off hire – and that’s a trend we’re excited to see blossom.
Ben Barnes, Head of Creative Services comments “As Top Banana continues to grow our Film team are only getting stronger. In 2018 we experienced an increased demand for quicker turnarounds and shortened lead times, as clients are really challenging the way we work by wanting to get much more involved in their projects. In 2019 we’re stepping up to the challenge and offering innovative solutions for short lead times and creative solutions that wow our clients. We know that this is going to be a big year for our Creative Services department and being scored so well by Televisual shows that we’re on our way”.
