About Us

Compost Creative was founded by Colin Thornton and Neil Wilson who first collaborated at the BBC in 2005.

A viral hit on Youtube called 'Bloody Omaha' (back when 4 million views was a lot) was the pivotal moment and Compost Creative was formed. We continue to approach every new project with the same commitment and enthusiasm as we showed in that gruelling viral.


We have carefully built up a strong team of directors, designers and artists who are ready to collaborate with clients on projects ranging from documentaries and feature films to title sequences and game cinematics.


Our experience means we understand the importance of context - how the visuals we're making fit into the film. Where to introduce humour, and where to be restrained and subtle. We know the complexities of running a production and will work with clients to make the collaboration a very bespoke experience.

 

We keep Compost Creative relatively small so we can keep in touch with all our projects. One thing we have found over the years is honesty and direct communication is vital. Our team is set up to deliver this and we make sure the budget ends up on the screen.
