  • We’re very pleased with our new campus tour film from Contra. They were attentive to our goals, original in their approach and kept us informed on progress from start to finish. John, Simon and the team were a pleasure to work with on our shoot days. Whilst being organised and professional, the crew were also flexible enough to capture some great fleeting moments for the film. The end result really conveys the atmosphere of LSE’s campus.

  • We have recently finished a project with Contra, for our first ever case study video and were impressed straight from the off, with their range of creative ideas that fulfilled our brief and budget. The knowledge, support and professionalism throughout cannot be faulted. The video delivered everything that we asked and was completed within the time frame given.
    We’re delighted with the final edit and have received only positive feedback.
    Thank you Contra and we look forward to our future projects.

  • Contra really understood our brief and very quickly got up to speed with our business and how we wanted video to support our marketing efforts. Contra’s commitment to quality was an important factor when selecting an agency and the end product certainly lived up to our early expectations. Simon and the team helped to create a compelling story that they brought to life through stunning film work and graphics that were seamlessly combined to create a superb final product. I would have no hesitation in recommending Contra to any company that wants to bring their proposition alive through video.

  • It was indeed successful and we’ve had good feedback from all the artists about the videos. Myself and Jenny think it worked well and it was a pleasure to work with your team.

    I second that from Rich; a really professional team and a pleasure to work with.

  • I am always impressed with their ability to get the highest possible production standard no matter what the limitations they may have to work with. They constantly show great enthusiasm and passion for their work and this is always reflected in the finished article. I have no hesitation in recommending them for any media project.

  • I have had the privilege of working with Contra both here in the UK and filming on location in Ghana over the last 10 years, the quality of there work is excellent, given the choice there is no other company I would rather use.

  • The Cambridge Admissions Office has worked with Contra on projects which form part of a wider initiative to shift perceptions about the University. I found Contra to be professional, responsive to brief, creative and flexible, with a knack for securing strong performances from their subjects. Above all they have been dedicated to producing the best possible material for us, and have delivered compelling visual treatments.
