About Us

Our People

Say hi to our people. Together we have filmed over 34,000 hours of footage for film, TV and corporate clients. Not to mention created awesome, cutting edge interactive 3D experiences, animations and immersive art. Our in-house experts and trusted partners have worked in all aspects of the TV, Film and corporate video worlds.

You can also feel secure in the knowledge our key people are DBS checked and hold current certificates for filming with vulnerable people, children and in organisations which require this certification.

Created by Husband and Wife team Charlotte and Gabriele Fantelli; Branded grew from the pair’s first Production Company Fantelli Productions which sold in 2017. Fantelli Productions made hit feature Journey to Le Mans which starred Sir Patrick Stewart (Narrator), premiered in Leicester Square and sold in more than 130 countries across the world. The pair joined forces with some exceptionally talented people along the way, who’s credentials span the depths of the oceans in Britain’s Secret Seas, through the rollercoaster world (literally) of gameshows (yes Adam and Stu rigged cameras on to a rollercoaster for a game show), through to the likes of Top Gear and The Grand Tour.

Not only do our people have the experience behind the camera, we understand business and marketing. Branded Video Production was born from the understanding of the commercial need for video content. So whether we are telling a story for a famous director on the silver screen, or for your brand in a boardroom, we make creative content that sells. We always have an eye on the bottom line and your return on investment.

The nature of our business is such that we have lots of talented individuals we call on to make every job succeed at its best; from specialist animators, 3D renderers and editors to camera assistants. Below are our core people we trust to take the lead on any of your projects.
