Respect for the client
We see our clients as individuals within a business and make the effort to completely understand them as people first and foremost. Having this emotional awareness enables us to develop effective relationships which results in better communication and better results for our clients' business.
Respect for the Captive Films team and partners
Respect is also a key driver internally within the Captive Films team. Respect is developed through an in-depth understanding between team members. Every Captive Films employee is required to conduct sophisticated TriMetrix™ assessments that help us to identify, select, retain and develop top talent. This also gives our clients peace of mind that our employees are working to their strengths.
Quality in every area of business
Quality encompasses everything at Captive Films. We seek the highest quality in our work output, our people, relationships with clients, our office and work environment. Coupled with our ingenuity and respect for others, quality drives the best solution for our clients.
Creative solutions are our problem, not yours. We can only achieve a quality solution by understanding our client's business and creative brief and then adopting a strong creative process that gets to the core of the problem. We ensure that every design element is on message and has earned its place aesthetically. This ensures that each piece of work is its own voice and personality. By never taking shortcuts, we always deliver for our clients.
Creativity and ingenuity through specialisation
To differentiate ourselves from our competitors we need to move away from them. The most powerful way to do this is to do one thing really well. Specialising in design & film enables us to gain knowledge and fast-track experience as well as to be constantly aware of the ever-changing industry landscape.
We thrive on challenging projects and pride ourselves on our ability to solve complex projects. Our ingenuity comes through our approach, our skills and experience. We look for the most powerful mediums through which to communicate a brand's message and apply the right approach. No client brief is the same, and we continually look for new ways to elevate our client's work to a standard beyond what is expected, which suprises, delights and simply achieves the business results required.
