About the Gate

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.

HERITAGE

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.


At The Gate we love what we do and this shines through our work. Over the past two decades, this love has inspired us to produce some incredible, creative work. From the very beginning, as if by magic, the finest directors and producers in the UK have joined us on our journey. The Gate team was forged from filmmakers who shared our passion and who continually wanted to push boundaries, both technically and artistically. We hope our creativity is matched only by the level of client service we deliver.

The Gate’s 10 producers now work across our four locations in Manchester, Edinburgh, London and Cape Town, supported by a 25-strong team of production managers and PAs. We have the breadth of expertise and flexibility that means we are equally at home producing a five-day international shoot as we are shooting table-top content in a small studio. At our core remains our infectious spirit; this is an exciting and inspiring place to be.
