CLAi, and our principal Chris Layhe, come from a very different background to most San Francisco video and film producers...
Harrow Film School; the two London Film Studios they were associated with – Pinewood and Bray; and their close links with the BBC. All of these follow an apprentice system of development, where you have to prove your knowledge of one discipline to your peers in order to get to the next. It’s one that we still believe in at CLAi because it teaches you how to manage multiple parts of a project, and communicate clearly with others through a common understanding, while still becoming a master of several disciplines.
This is reflected in the services which CLAi provide. We split these into two groups that constantly cross over – The Video Production Company and The Creative & Strategic Agency.
