Bites. / how we work?

From the initial brief to completion, we have put in place appropriate steps to ensure that efficiency and top-notch quality is maintained. Each stage has been designed as a springboard to the next one. Only when everyone is happy with each stage do we move on to the next – no guesses, no if’s or but’s. This way of working guarantees a much faster and cleaner way of running the process with everyone concerned being on exactly the same page.

The advantages are clear. Precision + Efficiency + Thorough preparation = Production excellence.

going green

It matters! We know it and we are ready for changes.

We want to be an organization that radically reduces the carbon footprint, implements the principles of common sense and moderation, encourages understanding and uses its resources and experience to support efficient projects promoting a greener way.

We implement it in two activities:

1. First of all, a reduction in the consumption of unprocessed materials. We focus on the basic essentials in our studios – advanced waste segregation on filming sets, reducing energy consumption by using LED lighting on filming sets, and reducing water consumption.

2. We have launched a production fund – we have allocated a budget that will allow us to produce several spots a year promoting important international pro-ecological initiatives. For this purpose, we are in the process of establishing connections with international pro-ecological organizations.
