Mob: 07710 480126 email: email@example.com Introduction and Summary Tigervision is an independent production company producing communications content for a wide range of clients. The core of our business is creating video and DVD programmes for “corporate communications”, however we also work in the broadcast area and produce advertising content. Our clients are very diverse and include such companies as Accenture, Saga, News International, Aon, Willis, easyJet, SESGlobal, Lockheed Martin, Sainsbury's and even English National Ballet. We also work for UK and European Government departments such as Essex County Council, Kent County Council and the Luxembourg Government. We have valuable approved supplier agreements with the Ministry of Defence, The Highways Agency and commercial organisations such as Accenture and Lockheed. Our clients use the programmes we make externally to communicate with their customers and stakeholders and to help develop their business. Internally the programmes are used to cascade information through an organisation for training and to help with change. We work nationally and internationally and we regularly produce in many languages - either for our clients to use their content around the world or to reach wider minority groups in the UK. We are small but successful, and we have many of our own facilities including edit suites and CD and DVD authoring systems. We operate at the very top end, delivering the best quality but also being competitive. We are one of the only corporate producers in Europe already fully equipped for and delivering programmes in High Definition format. Finally, our customers are key to our business and we treat every customer as special. We operate to the very best quality and we offer real value for money. We like to think we’re nice people to work with, and we like to exceed expectations.

FINANCIAL In May 2007 Tigervision acquired sixteen:nine; a smaller company with a turnover of approximately £200,000. This acquisition expanded our business and brought in another senior business winner and director into the company. As the accounts are done to October, the results of this move will only partially be reflected in this years results, but monthly turnover (June – October) since completion of the acquisition and integration of the businesses has been 60K average pointing at annual turnover now of £700,000. Recent financial history – in 000’s.

This is a short two-minute edit containing a host of different shots taken from the programmes we have made. It's designed to show the diversity and quality of the material we produce. "CORPORATE COMMUNICATIONS" Accenture There are two clips on the showreel from Accenture programmes. The first is a clip from a programme called “Hazel Grove”, which was about their work with Sainsbury’s in developing the flagship new technology store. The second clip form “Mission Control” is part of a programme that described how (as part of a 7yr £Bn outsourcing and consulting deal) Accenture rolled out new technology into over 500 stores around the country in just six months. Aon The Aon promotional video was designed to be used at exhibitions, at sales meetings and installed across their foyers in AV Kiosks. Because it had to work in many environments where sound might be an issue it was designed with no voice-over, just captions and music. Atradius Atradius is an international company specialising in risk management services. Previously Gerling NCM, we made this film to help position the new organisation to the press, it’s clients and to international financial institutions Domino Domino makes industrial ink jet printers, which operates on production lines all over the world. This clip is from a promo we made for the release of the “Codebox 3” easyJet. With the acquisition of Go, easyJet were set to become Europe's leading low fares airline. As part of the "coming together" they needed a video to explain what was happening to all their staff. Cut to a Primal Scream track, the goal of the programme was to explain the reasons for the merger, convey the aspirations of the company, and above all to reassure everyone that they, the people who worked there, would continue to be the key to the company's success. We produced 3000 copies, which were distributed to all the staff at both companies. News International. This programme was made to show how a wide variety of staff in diverse roles contributed to putting out four major national newspapers every day. It was used to show to staff and families of employees and for induction. It had some voice over, but also used extensive contributions from the staff themselves at all levels. Originally conceived as an internal communications project, it went down so well that the programme was also used externally around the world to describe the UK operation. Saga This is the Saga promotional video, which we made to help them achieve their management buy out in 2004. It was designed to show how superbly successful the organisation was, and to help take away the negative perceptions about a company providing for the “grey” market. SESGlobal. SES owns and operates a high proportion of the world's communication satellites, including the ASTRA system in Europe, Brasilsat, Asiasat and Americom on the USA. As such they broadcast a huge proportion of the world's TV and provide connectivity for many other communications applications. This clip is from the SESGlobal programme and is originally an HD production. PUBLIC INFORMATION Essex County Council "Choosing Childcare". This programme was made to help parents and carers make decisions about childcare, whether it be nurseries, day care, crèches, childminders, whatever. It was made using real contributions from parents and carers who had already been through the process and really knew the things to look for, and involved shooting at nurseries and many other types of childcare centres within the country. We also produced this programme in seven ethnic minority languages, from Bengali to Cantonese. Luxembourg - "Caring For the Environment ". This was one of four programmes made to show at the Hanover Expo 2000 on the Luxembourg Government's stand. They were created with captions so that the messages would not suffer if the sound were not heard in the exhibition environment. This particular programme documented Luxembourg’s efforts in protecting the environment. BROADCAST English National Ballet Clip from Electronic Press Kit for the new production of the Nutcracker designed by Gerald Scarfe. "Serengeti Burning" Clip from broadcast documentary, shot on location in Tanzania and broadcast among on others, Discovery. COMMERCIALS ASTRA "Rabid Sunflowers" This 40 second ad was made for ASTRA who are the European operator of the ASTRA satellite system and we won this job against international competition. They wanted to be slightly "off the wall" but still retain the message of connecting people - without getting into technology. Saga “South Africa” One of a set of 7, 10 second direct response adverts produced for Saga in 2005. Key personnel and CV's We retain a relatively small number of full time staff and use trusted freelancers on a regular basis, which is not that unusual in the industry. It does keep our cost base down and hence helps us be competitive. Key full time employees Stephen Hervieu Producer/director & MD Martin Davey Producer/director & Company Director Katie Russell Production Manager Helen Douse Production Assistant Matt King Technical manager/Editor James Gilmore Editor Antione Dixon –Bellot Technical Production Assistant/Editor Key regular freelancers Simon Hinshelwood Director Peter Darrell Director Roy Jones Director Chris Connell Senior Camera Person Mark Swinglehurst Sound Supervisor Ross Macleod Editor Ned Hards Sound Supervisor Michael Gibbins 3D & Graphics animator Stephen Hervieu Biography Stephen combines a degree in science with a diploma in dramatic art and directing. He trained as an editor at the Moving Picture Company in London, working mainly on commercials, then joined TVam at its first transmission, working on News, Sport and Features. Some ten years ago he went freelance, working as an editor and as a director for many network and independent TV companies on a wide variety of programming. In a freelance capacity his experience included coverage of major International events such as the G7 Summit in the UK and the US elections for ABC New York, Sports such as US football, Wimbledon and Formula 1, plus science programmes, training and promotional films. At the same time Stephen founded Tigervision to develop some of his own projects whilst he was working freelance for other major TV stations and facilities. However, by 1995 Tigervision began to get a name for itself in its own right and Stephen therefore left freelance work to devote his time to growing and developing the company's services. With Tigervision Stephen has created many corporate communications programmes for companies and organisations both large and small, including Accenture, News International, easyJet, Ordnance Survey, SESGlobal, Marks & Spencer and the Luxembourg Government. He has also produced broadcast material including a wildlife programme filmed in the Serengeti and transmitted on Discovery and various commercials. References. These are examples of written references that we hold. Gary Hicks, Head of Corporate Communications, Atradius: "Tigervision produced an excellent video programme for us - in seven languages - for presentation at major launches at several key sites in Europe and for ongoing use around the world. We were impressed with their commitment and flexibility in helping us achieve our objectives. The programme, which was carried out to a tight timetable and to budget, has been very well received and is working excellently for us. Many thanks for a splendid job!" Richard Wildman, Partner, Accenture: "We have been pleased to continue to work very closely with Tigervision this year with some of our most significant clients. Tigervision have recently won approved supplier status with Accenture, which in itself is no mean feat, but more importantly they continue to exceed our expectations, both in terms of quality and content, on a project by project basis. We look forward to working with the team at Tigervision again in the near future." Shelley Wilson - Webb, Accenture: `"Accenture asked Tigervision to create a series of videos to demonstrate insight into the activities and habits of the Internet consumer. This involved interviewing various subject matter experts, and numerous consumers in Internet cafes in London and Amsterdam, packaged up in a presentation-ready format. We were delighted with the professionalism, creativity and flexibility of the Tigervision team; the finished product has exceeded our expectations and they were a pleasure to work with." Jean Paul Hoffmann, VP, Communications, SES Global: “I hereby certify that SES Global has worked with Tigervision for more than five years. Tigervision have produced programmes for us for both internal and external use, such as corporate and educational video programmes, interactive CD-Rom-based training programmes, video-based training programmes, DVD-based presentation and exhibition material for SES ASTRA. We have been very pleased with the service provided by Tigervision during these years. They have proven to be a reliable provider of high quality material, with a highly creative approach and budget sensitivity. We are continuing to use Tigervision for updates to our SES GLOBAL corporate video and we will certainly consider using them for other communication requirements that may arise in the future.” Anne-Marie Garrigan, Children’s Community Development Officer, Essex County Council Tigervision have been a pleasure to work with. Steve and all his staff are always very friendly, polite and helpful whilst retaining a professional approach. This was particularly evident when the film crew went into the various childcare settings. All the settings commented on how little disruption the film crew had caused and how they had respected both the adults and the children; with whom they engaged to obtain some excellent material for the video. All timescales were adhered to and the video was delivered to cost, on time, in the correct quantities and finished to a very high standard. Working with Tigervision was definitely a positive experience, which resulted in a very high quality video, which is a pleasure to show to parents and carers.
