The CLAi Little Bit Bigger Portfolio

This is the Little Bit Bigger Portfolio – it’s nothing like all of our work, which runs to thousands of programs & films, but it’s a lot bigger than the selection on our splash page!

For a selection of pieces that we have played our part in organized by type of project, please see the other pages in this section, or just enjoy the diversity of this selection… in most cases the fuller pages also tell you a bit more about the roles that I and the team took on each project – some are limited to post-production others include entire project production.

25+ years in the business of making moving pictures of all sorts means that CLAi, and me personally, have amassed a pretty massive body of work. We’d love to show all of it to you – the good, the bad and the ugly (okay, maybe just the good or better) but space, changes in technology and the joys of non-disclosure agreements make this impossible. However, if there is something specific that you would like to see it may well be hiding on one of our backup drive arrays, so please do ask.

If you click on the link icon on the image as you hover over the wee beastie, it will take you to the video and a fuller explanation of all of this good stuff. Running to the bottom of the image selection loads yet more…
