Following a career in music and theatre, Iain Thompson formed NDE Films in 2004. That was the beginning of a journey that has taken him all over the world and through which he has built a sound reputation as a filmmaker with specialisms in time-lapse and aerial filming and photography.
Having honed his craft it was clear to Iain that by combining key aspects of storytelling within client productions meant it would be more memorable and impactful in a way that could change audience attitudes and behaviours.
Following a series of successful and award-winning projects co-produced with writer and social entrepreneur John Gilbert; Iain and John joined forces.
In 2019, the company rebranded as Storyboard Media, moved to brand new premises and invested in enhanced capabilities in podcasting, livestreaming and social media storytelling.
