Film company Reels in Motion reveals ambitious growth targets as it marks 15th year in business

A film production company which has been named among the best in Britain has revealed its ambitious plans for the future – as it celebrates 15 years in business.

Stoke-on-Trent-based Reels in Motion is flying the flag for Stoke-on-Trent and competing with big city film studios in London and the South East after being the only Staffordshire-based business to be recognised in the prestigious Top 50 Production Companies List, compiled by Televisual Magazine.

Since it was founded in 2004, the firm has worked with household names including Jaguar Land Rover, Michelin, Alton Towers and the British Chambers of Commerce.

 

And in 2017, Reels invested more than £250,000 in opening The Production House in Tunstall which boasts new offices, a film studio, a recording booth, green room and video editing suite as well as a nine-seat mini cinema.

Now over the next five years it aims to more than double its eight-strong workforce and achieve a turnover of more than £5 million.

Matt Hubbard, who started the business with fellow directors Phil Bland and Joe Gordon, said: “We have come a long way since graduating from Staffordshire University and took a small office in the university business hub.

“We dared to think big and it was always our aim to bring big city production values to film making in Stoke-on-Trent. The Production House is perhaps our biggest achievement as it has enabled high quality films to be made in studios in the heart of the Potteries.

“Staffordshire has long been known as the creative county and we’re proud to be playing our part in continuing that creativity in our own artistic field.

  

“We see the Production House as a statement of intent for our city and Stoke Studios is a fantastic facility that we want other film makers and photographers to take advantage of. Staffordshire University produces many talented film makers and we are flying the flag for that and providing facilities of a quality that means up-and-coming producers no longer need to travel to bigger cities to pursue their craft.”
