Vermillion Films

"We’re a film company.

It’s not that we specialise in films, it’s that we only do films.

We strive to be unconventional, to have original ideas and to execute them with creativity, passion and flair. But our experience means we’re conventional where it’s required; managing shoots, budgets, permits and insurances diligently and professionally.

The relationships we forge with our clients, the global brands, the international agencies and the local companies, are characterised by honesty, integrity and a shared desire to produce great work.

Finally, we firmly believe that work should be fun because life’s far too short to do otherwise." Click here to go to the Vermillion website.
