About

We inspire brand and broadcast audiences through pioneering content

We set out to:

Create one-of-a-kind video content for any platform, digital or traditional.

Transform your content with our in-house graphics and animations studio.

Develop social strategies to make your content work as hard as you do.

Our Company

Established in 2003, Captive Minds has developed content for over 60 brands and worked with major broadcasters such as BBC, ITV, BT Sport, ABC, Discovery and National Geographic. We’ve helped to break more than 20 World Records and have undertaken live broadcasts from the North Pole, South Pole and Everest.

Whilst we have helped to achieve some incredible feats of human endurance and award-winning brand campaigns, we are particularly proud of our work that has created media discourse and debate on social issues. In recent years, these issues have included climate change, youth engagement and women in sport.
