A company of the BRW group.

Independent Films is a BAFTA-winning production company responsible for some of the highest profile commercial advertising films of the last decade from the UK and Europe. The roster of talent includes major international directors Guy Ritchie, Jared Hess, The Glue Society, Philippe Andre, Seth Gordon, James W Griffiths, Mitch Stratten and Cary Fukunaga. In 2013, Indy8 was set up to produce branded films that require a different method of production.

Independent has produced over 500 commercial campaigns. In 2011, they were responsible for the award winning Write the Future World Cup Football campaign for Nike. The campaign attracted 12 million hits on YouTube in the first 48 hours and it has since become the most awarded commercial campaign in history. In 2012, Independent was acknowledged for their work with second place in the Gunn Report. In 2013, James W Griffiths and Independent picked up the BAFTA for Best British Short Film for Room 8, a branded content film sponsored by Bombay Sapphire gin.

An INDEPENDENT approach in a changing landscape.
