Founders of Onward Productions, Clive Ardagh and Adam Coffman met when they were at film school together in Newcastle, in the 1990’s. While their lives were to move in different directions over the next few years, with both of them going on to enjoy high-profile film careers abroad, they remained great friends throughout. So when they both ended up back in London at the same time, they decided to create a new film company together, and the rest, as they say, is history. Today, things couldn’t be going better for the pair with clients including artists, charities and corporate organisations.
Clive has been involved in crafting a wide variety of video material, ranging from documentaries, social projects and event filming to art videos, promos for charities and film work for corporate clients. As well as his BA in Film Production, he also has an MSc in Holistic Science, specialising in sustainability, philosophy and ecology, so he has a particular interest in environmental issues – and has made several videos for companies about social responsibility. However, he is more than happy to turn his hand to any subject matter
Adam has worked on documentaries for the BBC and Channel Four and has made films as far afield as Australia, Germany and Iceland. In tandem with this, he has also enjoyed a successful career in Parliament, where he currently heads up a cross-party committee that helps to shape cycling policy. However, his first love has always been film, so launching his own film company with Clive is the realisation of a long term goal.
