What makes us special

Our Company

Genres and Awards

We are an independent, employee-owned media company that works in a variety of genres. From single docs to long running entertainment and factual entertainment formats, dramas to children’s programmes, our talented production teams share a wealth of experience to tackle most briefs.

Our productions have won numerous Bafta Cymru & Celtic Media awards, several ‘One-World Media’ prizes, and the ‘Jules Verne Adventure’ award. The company has also been nominated for Bafta Kids UK and RTS awards.

Here is a list of our Awards

Land, Language, Local

We feel lucky to not only live in a beautiful part of the world, only a stone’s throw away from Yr Wyddfa, but to be able to work here as well. Therefore, ensuring a sustainable and long-term future to our business, one that also helps feed and develop the local economy, is a fundamental part of our vision. And whilst we work bilingually, we believe that by working in Welsh, and creating content in Welsh, we are doing our bit to develop and safeguard our language and culture for future generations.

A historic building full of technology

Visitors often describe our home, Goleuad as a tardis. This expansive building built on 2 floors surprises most, particularly as its innovative modernist interior design is in stark contrast to its 19th century historic exterior.

The building is dominated by a large green screen studio, one of the biggest of its kind in north Wales. There are 11 editing suites, kitted out with AVID editing software, all linked using NEXUS shared storage. This historic print house is now served by 100GB leased-line fibre broadband with 300TB of storage for our files.
