Progress is a creative film agency and production studio established in 2010 by filmmakers Matt Hopkins and Ben Lankester.
Today, Progress make commercials, digital content, branded entertainment, animation and feature-length cinema under one roof, with a two-tiered management structure servicing both agency and direct-to-client needs worldwide. No matter the brief, we are Progress. Storytellers first.
