Captains started modestly in 2015. Founded by two dreamers with no track record, but with belief in the underdog. We may not look like the underdog we were then anymore, having more than thirty people working on local and international productions daily. But that’s a misconception.
We are still the underdog.
Because while our team consists of a rich collection of characters, we all share the same drive to defeat Goliath. It’s our mentality. Out of love for our work.
Which is why we question old media laws at times. We are independent. We frequently hire people who may not have the richest CV but who do have a twinkle in their eye. And we have high hopes for the new generation. It’s our biggest ambition to raise them to extraordinary levels.
Captains runs on the power of change. To never settle. That’s what makes us quick on our feet and pragmatic. And sometimes stubborn. We produce for social media, TV and streaming services. From non-fiction commercials to theatrical documentaries. From seconds to seasons. From mobile to cinema.
A couple of years ago these were utopian combinations, but now it is our successful reality. But the thing that connects our genres, platforms and customers has never changed. It is the power to amaze and move people with stories.
Stories produced with dedication.
Own way of working
Regardless of the client, we make videos that people want to see.
Young producers, pragmatic creatives and dedicated editors.
We are able to produce for every screen using our strategic understanding of every platform. Small or big, from seconds to seasons.
The most extraordinary, touching, funny or feel-good stories of real people captured in a fitting way.
If you want to communicate your newest products, we are not the ones for you. But we are happy to help brands who have a real story to tell.
Sponsored or branded content for parties who are looking for something different than just another surface level format with a random influencer.
