Who We Are

Truth is tough to come by, but we strive to see it in every shot.

Eye Film are one of the longest established independent production companies in the UK, based in the heart of Norwich.

We are a dedicated team of filmmakers, editors, producers and animators who love the films we make.

 

Charlie has a long broadcast history and is an advocate for film in the East. He has built a young and passionate team.

 

We are committed to bringing in the next wave of new talent and we partner with City College Norwich’s Media Learning Company, which gives an extra entry point for people from all backgrounds into the industry. It’s such a success that graduates of the course make up half our team!

Our Story

Our founder Frank Prendergast started the company with his friend Mike Coles in 1973 after graduating from the Royal College of Art. After leaving London they found a new base in Eye, Suffolk. And so Eye Film was born, with Charlie joining the team as partner in 1998.

 

Although Frank is sadly no longer with us, he still inspires the team every day with his mission to bring creativity and inspiration to every film made, no matter the length or subject.

 

Over the years we’ve produced hundreds of hours of film and television content for all the major channels, working with everyone from Sir David Attenborough to Prince Harry and even our hero John Peel.

What We Stand for

Authenticity

We’re dedicated to the pursuit of something real, framing stories that haven’t been told and preferring genuine experiences over smoke and mirrors. That means honest conversations, a transparent process, and a sincere love of the work.

Artistry

Whatever the project, we have the experience, expertise, and creativity to unearth a spark, inspire awe in the ordinary, and bring ideas to life. Our individuality, professionalism, and eagle eye always shines through, in the way we work and on screen.

Tenacity

Small and mighty, we strive to be a cut above the rest, with practical solutions and professional standards to be proud of. We’re grafters and go-getters – whatever the challenge, we’ll find an angle. 

Our Sustainability Approach

authentic storytelling fuels our mission for change.

As a team we understand sustainability isn’t just a goal; it’s our shared responsibility and we are making changes wherever we can. 

 

We offset our travel emissions through our partnership with Make it Wild! Who are planting trees and rewilding sites in our local Norfolk and beyond.

 

We aim for ALBERT certification on all our broadcast productions moving forward and have achieved it on most of our recent films. 

 

We have adapted our office for efficiency and it runs on green energy.

 

Charlie is a board member for Norfolk Chamber of Commerce’s Climate Leaders, to help push the agenda forwards.

 

The film production supply chain is environmentally messy to say the least and we are in the process of assessing our suppliers to ensure they have strong environmental credentials
