What We DoA breakthrough in digital production

A new multimedia production system that produces digital feature film quality material for television budgets.

LFJ has developed a unique production pipeline process which delivers digital entertainment material for use across all media platforms currently distributing entertainment material. From IMAX to smart phones, theatrical to apps, television to games, with a quantum leap we can service all platforms from one set of digital assets.

The superior quality deliverables are produced in half the time, therefore making considerable cost savings on production budgets. All the digital entertainment properties produced by our system are immediately exploitable for use in: website creation, gaming, apps, 3D stereoscopic feature films, 2D feature films and publishing, both traditional and digital.

The LFJ production system was developed and used whilst making a TV series at Pinewood Shepperton studios in the UK.

A film is – or should be – more like music than like fiction. It should be a progression of moods and feelings. The theme, what’s behind the emotion, the meaning, all that comes later.

–Stanley Kubrick

The BenefitsOur unique production process reduces overall project  costs yet maintains hi resolution digital feature film quality.

In a nutshell the LFJ process has increased the speed, time and quality of each digital frame as it goes through the production process. This reduces multi-platform and interactive development costs.

The LFJ Production Process was used whilst making the Orsum Island TV series (right) filmed at Pinewood/Shepperton Studios during 2006-2008.

Research & Development

The LFJ ethos

LFJ believe that unless you have strong character lead stories, you do not have a solid vehicle to build successful content around. Another practice adopted by LFJ is the use of market research to connect at ground level with our audience the ultimate consumer.

IP & Content

Our extensive production experience has confirmed that all types of consumers want entertainment with strong stories and strong characters.

The only difference between today’s consumer and yesterday’s consumer is the way they access entertainment.

Families want access to digital entertainment 24/7. Not only through television and film but also through their mobiles, tablets, laptops and gaming consoles; sometimes using all devices simultaneously! 

Online entertainment through apps, gaming and interactive is part of their daily appetite.

There is a demand for engaging entertainment and content to service all multi-media platforms.

We make and develop content that address all these needs.


All material will be delivered using our unique production system.

Drama is life with the dull bits cut out.
