Our founder Frank Prendergast started the company with his friend Mike Coles back in 1973 after graduating from the Royal College of Art. When Frank moved to Suffolk in the late seventies the company came with him. The three directors at that time all lived in different parts of Suffolk so they decided to base the company in the most central point to all of them, which just happened to be in the town of Eye.
Charlie joined him as his business partner in 1998 and together Eye Film has produced television content for all the major channels as well countless corporate films. Very sadly, Frank passed away in May 2013 and is greatly missed by Charlie and the rest of the team.
Since 2000 the company has produced more than 100 hours of television content, been BAFTA nominated, won three creative industry awards and a number of Royal Television Society awards. We have been lucky enough to have worked with our heroes John Peel and Sir David Attenborough and travelled the world.
