The Concept Behind Theory Films

Theory Films was established in 2009 by co- founders Simon and Tom.

Simon came from a broadcast television and background while Tom was an talented features film / video editor and CGI artist. Tom and Simon first met in the early 2000’s. By 2009 Tom and Simon had co-owned a successful advertising video production company but sold their shares to start Theory Films.

Their vision for Theory Films was to create a video production company that was different from other video production companies. The Theory being they would pool together their collective resources and connections they had made over the years only using the crew and kit needed for that specific project.

Tom and Simon wanted the time to work on just a few projects at any one time, giving their undivided attention to every single project. In addition Theory Films would not charge the usual production fee  other large production studios always charge.  This approach meant they could produce the highest quality work all without needless overspending. 

Since 2009 the Theory Films model has been a success. We continue to produce award winning films, work and collaborate with great clients big and small using only the most knowledgeable and experienced crew for each job.
