...this is not your normal production company. We do things differently here.
Seven years ago, our MD went back to education to study and retrain as a media professional. During his time at MediaCityUK, he was finding that opportunities were presenting themselves where he could combine his studies and industry related collaborative projects. This was mainly down to his mature age. At 40, it was apparent that companies were giving him a shot over his 19-year-old counterparts, probably based on maturity and experience of other non-related media job roles. What started to happen however, was that he would bring the elite performing fellow students along on those opportunities with him. They soon started to prove that age is really nothing but a number. They all became invaluable to the companies and organisations that entrusted them with the work.
During his time at The University of Salford, he discovered that students wanted to capitalise on this industry connection. The university asked us to create a Media Production Team that could engage with companies and organisations on a professional level, whilst offering bespoke opportunities in real-world scenarios. One of the early problems was the different ethos between industry and academia and the need to be reactive and adaptable to business requirements. Badger & Combes was created by our MD to be that conduit between industry and academia.
Further to this, it was also apparent that there was a digital skills gap between creative industries and technology. Again, Badger & Combes steps in to pull these creative & digital technologies together - enabling clients to fully exploit the opportunities of adaptable, efficient, exciting solutions.
Badger & Combes as a company is made up of a collaborative mix of youth, experience, professionalism and maturity (we all know that’s code for old). We facilitate dynamic and tireless individuals who are determined to share the ethos of collaborative growth and development.
