Our core beliefs and most important values

Who we are…

We are experienced professionals with backgrounds in broadcast TV, radio, new media, journalism and education.

What we do…

We bring your ideas to life and suggest innovative ways of delivering the media content you need.

How we do it…

We listen and collaborate, drawing on a range of professional skills, targeted to your vision and budget.

Our values…

We like to listen to quiet voices, speaking with conviction about subjects they feel passionate about.  We often work with organisations who care, as we do, about making the world a better place, and create tools for them to do something about it.

Our philosophy…

Clear Focus believe in the transformative effect of understanding the whole learning package, not just the parts we make.

Our producers were among the earliest TV professionals to embrace the power of interactive multimedia, delivering ground-breaking new media for the Open University of Great Britain.

Clear Focus has continued to grow and embrace our changing technological world, whilst keeping our core values of good stories, with impact, told well.

Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.
