For each project we work with a small but dynamic creative team, carefully selected from a pool of talented freelance film crew. Our many projects have involved live action, mixed live action/animation and studio shoots of varying budgets from Self-Shooting / PD gigs to larger projects with 10 – 20 crew. All delivered on time and on budget.
Pocket Projects Video Production Company
Our humble beginnings
We were founded in 2006 by Bradford born filmmaker Rad Miller whom had nothing but a dream and a battered handicam. Now well over a decade later, the handicam has long since gone but the dream is very much alive and we are a fully fledged creative video production company working our magic out of our Leeds office.
It’s no secret that short form content is here to stay and we’ve been creating high quality, memorable and shareable short films since 2006. Our films may be short but they make a big impact.
“Since founding the company the creative vision for Pocket Projects has remained the same and that is to fully satisfy our clients by making fun, original and highly engaging films about young people.”
