Whether you're looking for an in-depth training film, or a stylish marketing video that will wow your customers, you've come to the right place.
Our experience in making mainstream television programmes for the BBC and ITV means you can be sure you're getting the best quality corporate video production, and the best value for money. A video designed specifically for your needs, tailor made by the experts.
That's what the BBC were after when they commissioned us to make a series of business videos over three years. The challenge - to raise awareness among employees of radical changes in the way the BBC's finances are accounted for.
A difficult task, given that much of the target audience consist of some of the best TV and radio people in the world, who would be scrutinising not only our production values, but also the amount of public money spent on the project.
Happily, the BBC were delighted with the finished products, so much so that they praised our ideas, high standards, and competitive budgets. We'll take care of things at every stage of video production, from audience research, concept and scripting through to filming, editing, duplication and delivery. And we can deliver any video style and format, whether it be documentary, drama, training, impact or just a basic Video News Release (VNR).
But we don't just undertake total corporate video production. You can use our friendly, cost-effective expertise for a whole host of video services from scriptwriting to filming to editing.

Retina was established in 1997 with a remit to bring broadcast TV and radio quality to corporate video, business podcasts and CDs.
Not only do we apply the creative techniques that TV viewers and radio listeners are familiar with to our videos, podcasts and CDs, we also apply the rigorous attention to detail and costs that professional programme-makers insist on.
We're London-based but have worked in every part of the UK, much of Europe, the USA and Australasia. Our core team consists of five specialists, supplemented by a pool of expert freelancers brought in to address the specific needs of each video or audio project. This means we're small enough to offer a friendly, flexible and highly competitive service, yet big enough to cope with the demands of major video and audio projects.
Much of our work comes from referrals by existing clients. We'd like to think that's because we're friendly and do a good job, on time and to budget. But don't just take our word for it, here's what some of the people we've worked for say about us:
