We specialise in making corporate video that has a uniquely personal and intimate feel and we’re hugely experienced in guiding clients through the process of making films that create audiences.
Our services include storyboarding and scripting, planning and production and promoting and marketing the finished video.
We’re not big. But we are clever.
Magneto Films is run by Gaby & Jeremy Jeffs who work with a team of talented associates and specialist freelancers.
All of the team are professionally trained film makers with dozens of commercials, prime-time films and documentaries to our names, made for the BBC, Channel 4, National Geographic and ITV. And we’ve made hundreds of films for charities and brands.
From TV we bring the essential skill of focusing on the audience, making films that are lively and watchable, using storytelling to engage and inform.
We set up Magneto Films in 2008 to bring our experience of making high quality broadcast TV to the world of video content. Since then we’ve made more than 250 films for brands, charities and health clients.
Gaby is a founding partner of Magneto and she’s usually the first contact point for new clients. She’s an extremely experienced film producer and director and loves working with real people’s stories. Gaby brings with her a background in popular TV – including stints for C4 and the BBC plus experience of working for a national parenting charity.
Away from the office, Gaby is a keen gardener growing fruit and vegetables on her allotment in Dulwich and working on our garden in Herne Hill. She also continues to volunteer with the NCT.
Jeremy began his career working for CSV – a national volunteer & learning charity and then trained with the BBC. He brings 15 years of high-end TV experience to Magneto. His credits include the critically acclaimed Story of India for BBC2, work with Michael Wood and Bill Bryson plus numerous films for Channel 4, BBC TV, National Geographic and PBS.
When he’s not making films for Magneto, he loves baking bread and making pizza, plus cycling and taking pictures.
