Client Testimonials

  • We had been given our brief from a new and important client (Western Union), and as an Agency were incredibly conscious of the need to impress. We presented the script to Commercials Unlimited, and then the budget. This was going to be a tricky commercial to say the least – involving Caribbean acrobats and a hectic Brixton location. Within hours of my first meeting with Commercials Unlimited, my mind was at ease. They had not only fully understood the direction I wanted this production to go in, but had grabbed hold of it with passion and enthusiasm. They took all the worry of short timescales, tight budget and logistical traumas, and presented me with a solution that was over and above our expectations. The shoot went incredibly well, with the outstanding crew working together to create a finished product that all parties were over the moon with. The communication between Agency / Crew and Client was flawless, and with this in mind we are already planning our next commercial with the same client, which I am looking forward to discussing with Luke and the team.'

  • Mazda 2 Interactive film "When they approached the brief, Commercials Unlimited showed immediately that they understood the convergence of media formats; they passionately believe – as we do – that the web as a medium is no longer the poor relation to television. With our high profile pan-European product launch for Mazda2 it was critical that we engaged a production company with the same mind set and who would be flexible when regional variances were identified, that progress could be communicated easily to all parties on a day to day basis, that the budget was strictly adhered to and that the launch date would not be compromised. On all counts, Commercials Unlimited met, and in many instances exceeded, our expectations. A special note of distinction has to go to the Director, Suki; he demonstrated throughout a level of creativity and obvious expertise in the medium under circumstances that could have been perceived as a logistical mountain with very little time to climb."

  • We recently worked with Commercials Unlimited on a project which saw the making of - not one – but seven commercials in an insanely short turnaround time. Right from pitch, and through all aspects of the production, they proved themselves to be eager, energetic and totally focused. Attention to detail was superb at all times – both from the team at CU and from their nominated director Laurie Castelli. Their post-production expertise also proved invaluable as they and Laurie marshalled the complicated project through with great skill and patience. It was obvious, too, that they’re very well thought of within the industry as they were able to pull in quite a few favours for us in terms of extra time here and there. To top it all, they’re genuinely nice people to be beside in the dark of a Soho editing suite for nearly four weeks – something that tests even the best of relationships!

  • Client comment: “Commercials Unlimited teamed up with Baraka to produce this new campaign for Holland & Barrett. Over 70 commercials were crafted to combine live action – Kim Wilde sync to camera – with multiple product CGI’s, where the task was to seduce the viewer into believing that the products on the shelves were real before they burst into life. Each product develops into a quirky scenario; a pack with Beckham-like skills playing ‘keepy-uppy’ with a capsule, packs waltzing a slick ‘Fred ‘n’ Ginger’ routine, a strutting supermodel with attitude and many more besides. Without exception, all the spots have great quirk and charm whilst still retaining their essential core retail message. It was a big undertaking with time constraints too, so a huge slap on the back for everyone concerned.”
