Corporate Client Testimonials


“From conception to final product delivery, Trunkman Productions provided sheer excellence, expertise and good humour when creating a highly polished set of videos for our Society to market our archives to a world-wide audience. The innovative ideas they had were followed through with perfect execution that enabled a potentially quite dry subject to come to life courtesy of fresh animation, filming and appropriate background music. I highly recommend Trunkman Productions and hope to use their wonderful services again soon”.

Dr Jim Walsh, CEO, Conway Hall Ethical Society

“At Trainline we have utilised Trunkman Productions services for many different projects over a number of years including the launch of our Careers site, internal films and also the handling of all the production and AV requirements for our management training and development courses.  These off site shoots always raise a number of challenges and run at a frantic pace but Trunkman consistently delivers a highly professional product whilst relieving a lot of stress from the management team!  Trunkman have always brought along a hard-working, knowledgable and fun team and are a pleasure to work with”.

Tatiana Hollier, Learning & Development Manager, The Trainline

Betfair has had a long standing professional relationship with Trunkman Productions, utilising their multimedia services since 2006 until the present day.  From camerawork to direction to editing and beyond Trunkman has worked with us on small internal projects, live events and training films, right up to mass online viral campaigns and broadcast productions.  Whether working off a detailed brief, or sometimes no brief at all, the Trunkman team have always proved to be professional and hardworking both in the studio or on location.
