We offer our clients the ultimate in VFX, in partnership with award-winning creative VFX studio No.8.
If it’s not possible to shoot it, together we can cheat it. The No8 team are highly experienced VFX veterans known for delivering award-winning, Televisual Top 10 work.
We work with our partners Hijack to offer the very best in on-set and digital lab services for your production.
Together, we bring you the latest project based colour management. Experienced DITs manage and process your precious rushes – at any stage in the production.
Hijack’s recent projects include Sally Potter’s ‘The Roads Not Taken’ (2020) and six part Amazon Prime series ‘Good Omens’.
We bring you reliable and high quality film processing, scanning and printing, made possible by our long partnership with Cinelab.
We can oversee film processes from 8mm all the way to 65mm – for any project, and any scope. Our producers facilitate whatever you need from the lab, looking after every step from inception to delivery.
We love the film aesthetic – it defined our vocation. Long fascinated with emulating film looks, we know how to elicit the feelings evoked by film’s unmistakable organic aesthetic.
Extensive research and development and Cheat proprietary tools mean we can tailor a unique look for any project. We also offer custom film profiling and LUT creation, allowing us to shape the look development.
When Cheat gets involved early in the creative process, we can help you craft the perfect grade to take on set so your look is established from the word go.
We offer one complementary CHEAT LOOKS session every week – first come, first served. Got a shoot coming up? Find out how we can elevate your vision.
