The Magic Of Craft

Cheat x Harbor

We’ve been acquired by Harbor! 

Clients will benefit from having access to both our colourist roster, and that of Harbor, for their post-production projects across entertainment and advertising. Harbor has appointed Dan Bennett as Managing Director, Advertising, UK to lead us into our next chapter. And we’re so excited to have such an experienced MD join us.

If you don’t know Dan, he has over 15 years of experience in the VFX industry - including high profile projects including Prometheus (2012), Maniac (2018), and American Animals (2018) - and brings a wealth of strategic thinking, entrepreneurial leadership, and a proven track record of success to his new role with us.

The move accelerates advertising capabilities for Harbor in London, a central piece to its business, and puts the careers of its artists -  and those of Cheat - first whilst expanding the company’s offerings in the UK. The acquisition will allow Harbor to further invest in cross-over and emerging talent in advertising seeking to segue into entertainment. Now uniquely positioned at Harbor’s Turnmills studio, the company offers scaled solutions for premium content while maintaining a boutique feel, servicing UK-based global studios and agency clients across advertising and entertainment.
