Coronavirus Update

We hope that you’re all keeping safe and well during these difficult times.

We find ourselves in strange times. Each and every one of us. So we need to keep talking, keep communicating with our colleagues and customers – to maintain links with people, and to forge new ones, to keep trade flowing so that when normality returns we can all hit the ground running.

We can help you to keep reaching out, staying in touch with the world around you. At Olaus Roe we’re used to working remotely – with animators and editors working from home, VO artists recording in their own studios and journalist crew members filming and operating drones while observing the stringent health and safety rules that we all need to follow.

In the words of Miles Davis, “I’m always thinking about creating. My future starts when I wake up every morning.” – A sentiment we share, even in these difficult times.

Stay safe everyone. We’re here when you need us.

Communication through moving image

Creative, engaging content that communicates ideas – and entertains.

Olaus Roe is a video production company based in Bristol UK, with a global reach spanning all aspects of film and video. Established in 2003, our objective has always been to increase and enhance communication between our clients and their audiences.

Using our combined unique skills and business knowledge, we know how to help brands connect and communicate with their audiences giving measurable results. We aim to be as creative as we can possibly be when approaching every one of our projects.

Our team is passionate about developing informative, engaging and entertaining video content that connects with people, deepens viewer relationships and takes brands in exciting new directions. Below are a few reels that give an insight into our work, with more details and an expanded selection of some of our projects lower down the page…

What we do

We create moving image content that includes corporate film, TV commercials, promos, motion graphics and animation, broadcast design, channel branding, virals, social media and online video content.

We help companies by taking care of the creative side of video production, pre-production, filming, post-production and delivery. We can also secure all the necessary paperwork and permissions, filming, editing and mastering for broadcast. As CAA permit holders and drone operators, we are even able to take aerial shots to get impressive images from above.

Using the combined talent, skills and strategic knowledge of our team, we work across the four key areas of corporate film, TV commercials, motion graphics & animation and broadcast graphics & visual FX.

Motion Graphics and Animation

At heart we are creatively focussed and base all that we do on an experienced approach to good design and skilful execution.

Motion graphics and animation can really help to engage and maintain interest in your film, as well as helping the message to be more memorable. Sometimes the aim may just be to create great-looking video to attract interest – and at other times, such as with explainer videos or brand, product and service promos it can be essential to describe the content as clearly and succinctly as possible. We can animate in any style of both 2D and 3D, from abstract to photo-real, and we can design, build and animate CGI content to the highest quality.

Broadcast Graphics and VFX

From wire painting, rotoscoping, CGI zero-G effects to complete environment CGI replacement, we can help to design your sequences or manipulate existing footage to create flawless broadcast graphics and seamless visual fx.

Graphic sequences to enhance and explain content, shot correction, compositing to create what cannot be filmed by camera alone, globes, maps, animated text and diagrams, right through to photo-real recreations of the real to the surreal. We also design and produce title sequences for film and TV, as well as end credits, straps and transitions for film or programme content.

Corporate Film

Using video for employee engagement, marketing or sales campaigns increases your brand awareness and allows you to tell your story in the best possible way.

We take a unique approach to corporate video production for every client. Video can be used across all media and devices too, including apps and websites, as well as more traditional media such as cinema and television. (ie: for TV commercials, social media, web promos, virals, events, etc).

Video dominates internet and mobile traffic by an ever-increasing rate, generating more shareable content and boosting your SEO, helping you to make your success rate more measurable. We can help you to stand out and make the most of the opportunities.

Our team has a vast amount of expertise producing content for brand launch and evolution, employee engagement, B2B and B2C communications, working with senior executives of global organisations, to employees who have never been filmed before. We also have a flawless track record working in situations where there may be vulnerable individuals, children or safety considerations.

TV Commercials Production

TV commercials and web/social media promos from initial concept right through to final delivery.

You can brief us on your audience and objectives so that we can produce storyboards and scripts, or we can work to your own boards if that’s preferred. We’ve filmed in locations all over the world, we can work to all styles of both 2D and 3D animation and we can combine live-action and animation if required to produce TV spots, promos and virals that communicate your message clearly and achieve results. We handle all clearances, permissions paperwork and technical checks and can deliver your copy to any media destination worldwide, ready for broadcast.


We have a lot of experience producing and delivering content for cinematic release.

We’ve produced short films for cinema release which have included Dolby Surround sound mixes and a combination of live footage and VFX sequences. We’ve also produced and delivered cinema commercials as well and producing visuals effects and title sequences for feature film release.

In all these cases we’ve had to deal with the technical issues associated with cinema production including dealing with colour space, resolution and even Sony Surround Sound mixing. We’ve also made up master media and distributed direct to national cinema’s for independent film distribution.


Our Team

Whether we’re working as part of an Agency team or directly for a client, our friendly approachable attitude always helps us to get the best possible results.
