Our Journey

We are Going Since 2012

Kartoffel films was founded in early 2012 by Eoin.  The company was founded on the belief that at the time video production was often overproduced with excessive labor, process, and kit.  We believed that not only could video be made for less budget and resources but in fact, the outcome would be better with more focused creativity and faster to produce.  

We believed that remote working patterns and their associated technology, whether that be google docs or video conferencing would streamline collaborative creative processes allowing more nimble teams, great flexibility, and improved experiences for our clients. 

Throughout our life as a company, we have also maintained a belief that this technology and improved process and flexibility could not only increase productivity and efficiency but also that its synergy could enable a business that was able to “give back” and operate in a manner that was respectful to the people we work with and the world around us.  

9 years on and 2000 productions plus we have a lot of very happy clients, 30% of work has been for the 3rd sector and has been 20% discounted all while our typical team working hours have rarely exceeded the standard working week in an industry which is notorious for long hours.  

Our model seems to have been proven and it’s now a model increasingly embraced in the rest of the video production sector.

Our Ethos, Creative. Focused. Fast.

The company’s foundation and its model is the basis of our Ethos.  

Creative – we are a passionate bunch creatively lead.  We put our years of creative experience into everything we do, every project big or small.  It is the key driving force behind much of our decisions and our work’s success. 

Focused – our streamlined process and remote model underpin our production teams’ work, but it’s their rigour and experience that really drives our consistently high production values and above par client experience.  

Fast – we can work surprisingly quickly, we have turned around animations in a day, shoots, and full edits overnight.  All without an inch of compromise, technically, creatively or in our client services.

All of this is only possible with the unique model that we have built, a unique combination of expertise, process, and approach. This is what makes Kartoffel Films Different.  It’s readily available to see in the work on this site, the awards it has won and our ongoing client partnerships.  And most importantly the results our clients can see in return to their brands and investment.

They are the pillars the company stands upon.
