SPL Communications offers a wide range of video production services. We’ve been around for a while so we must be doing something right!

If you’re on the lookout for a reliable and professional film company to use, talk to us!









When I set up SPL Communications I wanted it to be a company that made really great films – but without them costing a fortune. I’d spent some time before that making ‘TV commercials for radio commercial money’ so I knew how to create great value where my clients wanted to see it – on screen.

That’s as true today as it’s always been but in an industry where budgets seem to be in a perpetual race to the bottom, I still believe we offer the best value out there for the level of experience and expertise we offer.

I’d love you to put that to the test by asking us to quote on your next films. Why not give us a call? You may be pleasantly surprised!
