About Us

Each one of us has come from a different walk of life, but one thing the Eye Film team all have in common is our interest and background that is rooted in creativity. In our spare time, everyone is a creative – ranging from artists and photographers, DJ’s, writers and designers – and each one of us is a film enthusiast. Each individual brings a unique creative element to the table, and because of this we make creativity our objective; the driving force behind all of the work we produce.

Together, we strive to tell stories in the most inventive and innovative way possible – our aim is to draw out the details, make thought-provoking work…to find your story, and portray it in a stimulating or inspiring way. Collectively, our combined experience has led us to work with brands, broadcasters, schools, organisations as well as securing long-lasting partnerships with charities such as The Halo Trust.

We always love to chat about new ideas and hear your stories – there’s always a pot of coffee on, so drop in for a chat or give us a call on 01603 727750.

Charlie

Managing Director

In another life, Charlie would have been a travel agent and is always on the lookout for the next ‘great deal’. A Google Maps loyalist through and through, Charlie like ‘proper’ coffee (never instant!)

Max

Head of Production + Editor

Max’s dress-code is of a monochrome palette – rarely seen in colour, he enjoys collecting techno records, keeping things tidy and being half dutch.  Max likes an Earl Grey with a splash of milk.

Annu

Production Coordinator

Annu enjoys dogs, listening to Radio 4 extra and being warm.  In her spare time, Annu likes painting, drawing and dancing.  She is passionate about interesting earrings and is being slowly (and begrudingly) weaned off sugar in hot drinks – tea is her favourite.

Louis

Graphic Designer

Often losing keys, Louis never misses a grand opening, new local event or leg day. He’s always on hand for an honest opinion. Louis enjoys feeding his cat crisps and doing business.

Clive

Director + Producer

If you’ve been in the media as long as Clive has you really need no introduction.  Never mistaken for Dad’s Army actor, Clive Dunn, Clive is a fan of a good old fashioned cup of builders tea.

Our Story

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.
