    CREATE.

    In 2016, The Ark collaborated with The London Knowledge Production Company to produce its first television series: Love London. Across six episodes Love London uncovers hidden gems, guided by an experienced London Black Taxi driver. Series one which is currently being distributed for broadcast covers Clerkenwell, Covent Garden, Southwark, Mayfair, Marylebone & Fitzrovia and Holborn & Bloomsbury. Production is underway for a second series. As well as producing factual material for broadcast, The Ark has focused its production arm on creating professional promotional films for a number of clients. These suit various marketing strategies and can be integral across a range of platforms including broadcast release, digital media campaigns, centrepiece on your website, social media, content distribution and outdoor campaigns. We believe one of the areas that makes us different is our ability to recognise key areas and highlight these in our films through the use of eye catching and memorable graphic design and visual effects. Our unique editing style allows us to produce sleek and effective promotional films which have the ability to live long in the memory of your target audience. Our process begins with an free consultation to explore what your company would like to achieve and also generate ideas. We will then use your feedback to produce and deliver a bespoke multi-purpose promotional film in any format that you require. Please feel free to get in touch with a member of our team who will be happy to discuss your requirements further.
