So what is the Curiosity Film Company?
Well before we get to what... Lets get to why!
Curiosity is the key ingredient in all of man's great endeavours...
Its what made us ask "what's over there" and eventually got us to ask "what's out there" and it was involved in every innovation, discovery and great idea in-between and onwards...
Curiosity is at the heart of discovery and its a key ingredient in great storytelling...
The Curiosity Film Company is naturally curious about our clients and the projects we choose to pursue. If we invest our time in your story its because we feel we can make it a great story and even better we can make it a great story well told through our chosen medium - video...
So how does it work?
First we talk... Easiest way for us to do this is for you to drop us a message in the contact section below and tell us just a little bit about what it is you are working on... No need for a novel - just the basics, what it is, how is it different, why should people want to know about it etc... etc and maybe a little bit on how you see us helping you communicate that story.
From there we'll talk some more... We'll get infused with your passion and your level of understanding for your thing and we'll get passionate and excited too! This is important because when we share your passion and understanding communicating your story becomes so much easier and enjoyable.
We'll then give you a treatment which includes several fully costed concepts and from there we can progress to making your video!

Now part of the STW Group.
Buchanan Group are the creators and global experts of a concept called 3rd Party Advertising.
What does this mean? It means instead of communications coming from the brand itself, they are delivered to consumers via a 3rd Party branded platform. This allows for many benefits and efficiencies - but most importantly strong sales for the brand utilising the platform.

With nearly 2000 campaigns under their belt they have become extremely proficient at delivering a highly predictable and effective piece of copy.
