About us

1185 Commercial is a full-service production and post-production partner for agencies and brands. Part of 1185 Group, we have grown from film and TV production company 1185 Films, founded in 2003 by producer and director Nick Franco. With state-of-the-art facilities in Farringdon, central London, we offer complete creative production from concept to delivery, full post-production from 1185 Post and the best creative talent from agency division 1185 Talent.

People say we’re a bit rock’n’roll. We think that's because we break down barriers, we say what we mean and we're always willing to take creative risks. But, like any successful rock‘n'roll outfit, we’re highly professional, we always deliver and we’re always on time. The 1185 name comes from the 1.85:1 widescreen cinema aspect ratio, because our love of the cinematic inspires everything we do.
