We have announced today the acquisition of Straker Films, a very successful corporate video production business.

I am delighted to welcome the Straker team – Nick Straker, Nicola Mann, Sharon Baker and Tom Fagan to Zinc Media and hope everyone else will give them a warm welcome. They have moved in on the 13th Floor of Portland House alongside the Communicate team.

Straker Films have a terrific track record of producing high-quality, compelling video for a wide range of blue chip companies and organisations, including Rio Tinto, National Grid, Nationwide, government ministries and even MI5. If you have a moment take a look at and you can see the range of work they produce. It stretches from clever use of animation through highly sophisticated behavioural change video to entertaining comedy.

Bringing Straker Films into the fold is an important step forward for Zinc Media in building our Communications business and developing corporate story-telling as a significant new revenue stream. We now have a very talented, specialist team on board and a back catalogue of productions which is a superb calling card as we focus on winning business from major companies and organisations.
