Rob works as a Director/DOP. The way he sees it – particularly with food spots – is that directing and lighting are part and parcel of the same thing; nothing gets lost in translation and this symbiosis also smiles on the budget.

What Client’s Say
'From the onset I had a very clear vision of what we needed to achieve, so I was delighted when Commercials Unlimited proposed moving the shoot to Barcelona to overcome the problems of (potentially) poor light and cluttered environments. I was delighted too when they produced a real Atlantic cod for Red Vision to base their fish CGI on. The deadline was extremely tight, but having Graham Collier (the animator) along on the shoot was a great help in speeding up the subsequent CGI process. It was important too that the Big Fish appeared friendly whilst appearing authentic throughout and by virtue of what proved to be a real team effort, we achieved all our objectives and had a lot of fun besides.’
STUART VERNEY - Creative Director - Inferno London. "Commercials Unlimited brought together a bespoke team of highly talented individuals to work their magic on a relatively small budget project with tight deadlines. I have been mighty impressed with the commitment, creativity and desire to go the extra mile to achieve a fantastic piece of film that redefines the Villa Holiday advertising genre that gives our client a fantastic brand response ad. I've never seen a happier client! These guys are a pleasure to work with - from initial treatments to final post. I look forward to the chance to work with them on the next campaign. Bravo!!!"
“We just want to say a big thank you to Commercials Unlimited for all your efforts in creating SURFER and LIPSTICK. The clients are very happy with them and I think you’ve done wonders with no time and no money!”
For the Bayer animated commercial. We were under time pressure but CU provided us with costings and a time schedule that would let us deliver what the client needed. We were able to make the inevitable changes along the way and were able to monitor and keep control of the project, without the need to be too hands-on. The process was always going to be hectic, but we were pleased with how it all went, and with the end result. We'll certainly work with them again."
