Colin Gregg arrived on the London advertising scene with a bang – directing the iconic Blackcurrant Tango ‘St George’ spot for HHCL. A hundred or so commercials later and Colin still approaches each new project with boyish enthusiasm. Strong casting, assured story-telling and the ability to land the gag every time have been the consistent hallmarks of Colin’s work. It’s a pleasure welcoming him to UnLtd. Even though he’s an Arsenal fan….
From the Imax to the iPhone.
UnLtd film and production
ONCE UPON A TIME, IT WAS ALL ABOUT TV COMMERCIALS OR CINEMA ADS.
NOW THE POSSIBILITIES FOR STORY-TELLING ARE UNLTD.
Today, content goes anywhere. On any screen. In any shape, size or form. But that’s the one overriding reason why the production company you choose needs the experience, ability and flexibility to know exactly what it’s doing.
The agencies we work with rely on us for having the know-how, the know-when and the know-where to get things made on time and on budget.
WE HAVE DIFFERENT KINDS OF DIRECTOR. BECAUSE YOU NEED DIFFERENT KINDS OF CONTENT.
Whether we’re talking TV, film, drama, comedy, documentary, online, in-house or idents, you don’t just need specialists. You need specialists who are at the top of their game. We’ve assembled many talents of every description. They get UnLtd support. You get superlative content.
Brian started directing ads when he graduated from film school in Dublin some fifteen years ago. He’s shot hundreds since and his short films have won awards in the US and Europe. Perhaps not surprisingly, Brian’s passion for food informs much of his work. Mr Durnin also happens to be charming company in the pub.
During a career spanning ten years, Simon has developed a style of his own. His naturally relaxed and engaging personality belies a keen attention to detail – and much of his work reflects these character traits. Simon has still to be cured of the wanderlust that has seen him shoot in every corner of the globe.
Propelled into television drama with a formidable documentary making career already behind him, Dominic wrote and directed some of the most powerful stand-alone films the BBC has screened in the past 15 years. A string of awards – including two BAFTAs – followed. His ads have also won awards. If you’ve yet to witness Dominic at the piano then you’re in for a treat.
One of UnLtd’s two Irish Brians … Mr O’Malley has been directing drama and commercials for 15 years. His “fillums” have received wide critical acclaim. Whilst his commercials maybe a bit less dark than his features, they still demonstrate Brian’s sharp casting eye and consummate narrative skills. Brian is a keyboard fanatic has more synths than Rick Wakeman. Nearly.
Barny is the darling of the UK’s TV documentary-making community. Emerging from college with Britain’s only Science & Film-making degree, Barny has directed a succession of hugely successful series – filming in some of the least hospitable places on the planet. What he doesn’t know about getting performances from dogs and babies isn’t worth knowing.
Working on the platform of a successful career as a stills photographer, Chris has brought his skills to bear on film-making. With a natural ability to allow his subjects to drop their guard in front of the camera, Chris has been able to capture people at their most real – resulting in engaging and involving story-telling. With extensive contacts throughout the worlds of music and fashion, Chris has more celebrity stories than you can shake a stick at. He’s very discreet mind.
MANY PRODUCTION COMPANIES ARE GOOD AT MAKING PROMISES.
FEW ARE GOOD ENOUGH TO MAKE THEM HAPPEN.
The industry constantly changes and you hear lots of people talking the talk. But it’s not just what they say they know. Or who they say they know. It’s about delivering. Over decades in the business, we’ve acquired vast amounts of experience on all types of projects. We’ve established enviably close relationships with suppliers. And we’ve worked with partners outside conventional commercial production. It’s this combination of being smart and being agile that sets us apart.
So, whether it’s a 30 second TVC, a 2 minute piece, a 360 VR or a package requiring all three, count on these things happening: the money will be spent wisely and the production will run smoothly.
OTHER PRODUCTION SOLUTIONS.
As this showreel demonstrates we can collaborate with a range of ‘production partners’ to produce content in less traditional, less conventional ways.
The UnLtd ethos is ‘let’s get stuff made’. Talk to us to find out how we can help bring this about.

Remarkable as it seems, Blackcurrant Tango ‘St George’ is twenty years old. Most things in advertising that are similarly ‘ancient’ tend to creak a bit. In fact in most cases, they creak a lot. And yet there’s something about Ray Gardner. There’s something about his passionate delivery. About the delicious way the […]
