Producing effective digital media...
Somerset Film has a growing track record in successful
public service ﬁlm production, employing a core team
who, together with talented freelancers, have all the skills
necessary to create effective, dynamic digital media.
In addition businesses have been attracted to commission
our services and this work helps to fund our commitment
to community and education. We also teach, train and
facilitate individuals and communities to make the most of
their creative potential. We take on bursary students and
offer work experience on various productions to develop
creative capacity across the county.
