Mental Health

Central to our ethos is a deep-seated value for people’s mental health.

In an industry notorious for its demanding schedules, high-stakes pressures, and often cutthroat competition and bullying the well-being of individuals can easily become sidelined and in many cases completely ignored.

We recognise that the most compelling stories emerge from a foundation of well-being, empathy and genuine human connection.

In short, we want people to enjoy working with us at every level.

By prioritising mental health, we try to  create an environment where creativity can flourish authentically, fostering a truly collaborative atmosphere where artists and creators feel valued, supported and empowered.

We will always endeavour to create great entertainement but never at the expense of somebodys mental and/or physical health.
