Direct To Client Production Company

Got a question for the Sandstorm Films team?

Since we were founded in 2000 we have seen the rise of digital and the many shifts in the traditional creative agency model. This is Direct To Client Production Company Today the status quo is trying more than ever to put labels – and limits – onto content creators and what they can do… but we have never conformed to what others are doing and don’t intend to start now.

Instead we will continue to offer a complete end-to-end film & branded content production service in the most efficient way possible to those who understand the opportunity. We have invested in this model for nearly 20 years and built a unique in-house facility and a dedicated team who have hands-on experience working with some of the world’s biggest brands.

So, if like us, you care about creating effective, performance-optimised branded content, produced to the highest professional standards, extremely quickly and efficiently but in a relaxed, enjoyable environment then we are your partner, your resource, your industry insight, your problem solver and we can’t wait to work with you.

SOHO

Sandstorm started as a production company in Soho and almost 20 years later, creative and technical excellence are still part of who we are.

2007

SCIENCE MUSEUM

Moving out to Wiltshire to set up a creative hub for the Science Museum was a bold move that marked us out very early on as mould-breakers.

CUSTOM BUILT HQ

In 2009 we took over an old dairy and converted it into the fully equipped film studios and post-production facilities you see today.

OUR STORY

Founded by Tom Ward in 2000, Sandstorm Films began life like so many creative companies, in London’s Soho. Direct To Client Production Company, It was back then while working on feature films and TV commercials that Tom anticipated the rise of digital content and how the traditional production model would struggle to fulfill client demand for moving image assets in particular.

Tom kept the company’s foothold in London but moved production to an easily accessible site just outside the M25 – transforming a disused dairy farm into an end-to-end studio complex that, at a fraction of the cost of renting a modest office in Soho, today produces the highest levels of cinema and TV commercials both directly with brands and in partnership with the world’s leading creative agencies.

Tom’s vision was simple: build industry-leading facilities, equipped with the very best cinema-quality cameras and lights and a full-time core team who are all hands-on experts in their field.​ This unique – and brave – approach gave clients for the first time a facility to produce branded content that would match their flagship above-the line campaigns but at a much lower cost and shorter turnaround time.
Today, along with offices in London and New York, Sandstorm Films produce over 80% of their work from this custom-built facility just 40 minutes from Heathrow airport.
