What We Do

We have expertise that starts with the creation and development of an initial idea for your film through to production and distribution

Concept creation

We take your brief, develop a concept that will work for your audience and advise you on how to reach them via the most relevant distribution platforms. We can do this with agency creatives or without and have experience of working both ways.

Costings and timelines

From top-line costs through to detailed budgets and from approximate timelines to detailed schedules we can let you know how long it will take and how much it will cost.

Project development

Whether we are developing a project from the outset or are working from an existing idea we refine it to appeal to your target audience. From an initial treatment outlining the vision for your content we develop a shooting script that meets with your approval for production.

Distribution strategy

For clients for who want to create branded content that secures broadcast distribution, we can draw on our extensive experience of the UK and International TV commissioning marketplace to give meaningful advice on the likeliest route to securing a broadcast slot. We’ll also write treatments to secure commissioning slots or advise you on the relevant production partners for your project if your content project falls outside our immediate areas of expertise.


We have created several hundred hours of broadcast, corporate, digital and film content globally for both national and international clients.


Contented also provide advice on a consultancy basis to agencies, brands, charities and NGO’s about how to develop, produce and distribute branded content for both broadcast and cinema distribution. Please see the consultancy section for examples of consultancy work.

In addition Jonathan Rawlinson and his regular teaching partner Simon van der Borgh offer short courses and project development workshops to feature filmmakers interested in developing their feature film projects and developments skills.
