EXCELLENCE

AT CLAi WE DON'T ACTUALLY ACCEPT THAT WORDS LIKE “COMPROMISE”, “GOOD ENOUGH”, “LATE” AND “OVER BUDGET” EXIST

It’s not word blindness, just a belief that if it is worth doing something then it is worth doing it as well as humanly possible.  It’s why we believe excellence should never be a goal to work towards, it should be the reason to do the work.

It’s a philosophy that translates into films that win award after award, and corporate programs that get the job, sell the service and raise the funds. Which makes us all very happy!

THE BIGGER PORTFOLIO

This is the Bigger Portfolio – it’s nothing like all of our work, but it’s a lot bigger than the selection on our opening page! For a selection of pieces made by type of project please see the other pages in this section, or pick ones here based on some of the production roles that CLAi take…

25+ years in the business of making moving pictures of all sorts means that CLAi, and Chris Layhe 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 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…
