The Gate Films

20 years ago, Simon and Sarah started making TV commercials together. They wanted to make beautiful creative work that moved people as well as products. To tell stories in film. And so The Gate began.

From conception, the company did work that got attention. Bigger brands came on board. More talent came to work with us. Pushing us into places where we could win awards with our stories. Suddenly we had a big roster of directors and network agencies on our books. The Gate opened a boutique post-production facility in the heart of Manchester with the resources to deliver, that now exists across Manchester, London and Scotland locations, together with a new base in South Africa.
Brand storytelling has gained momentum in the new world of advertising. It’s where we started. Now in this constant evolution, we find the new technologies, channels, platforms, opportunities to connect with people and invite people to get involved with our stories. We push these new mediums to entertain, engage, involve, create and surprise with our story telling. It’s an exciting place to be. And we’ll keep on pushing forward.
