About us

1185 Talent is the creative talent agency division of 1185 Group, connecting you to leading creative professionals like editors, directors, colourists and VFX artists. We have grown from film and TV production company 1185 Films, founded in 2003 by producer and director Nick Franco. The 1185 Group also includes creative production for brands and agencies from 1185 Commercial, post-production from 1185 Post and film funding consulting from 1185 Consult.

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.

How we work

Passionate creators who are always on your side

We’re proud to have created a supportive environment for every kind of filmmaker, client and production. We want your project to be the best it can be, and that includes offering you the best talent to make that happen.

At 1185 Group, you’ll meet committed, creative collaborators who make sure you get over the line. Working with us isn’t like staying in an anonymous hotel chain, it’s more like a family-run guesthouse where you’re welcomed as an old friend. Using our experience in film and TV, we aim to deliver the highest possible production values within your budget. Our streamlined, focused approach is more economical than a big production house where you're just another client - so you get a lot more bang for your buck.
