Holiday Films Launches One-Stop Production Network Holiday United Group


The Canadian production company expands to a full production network made up of Holiday Films, Nimble Content, Recess Post, and The Cavalry

Holiday Films Launches One-Stop Production Network Holiday United Group
Canadian production company Holiday Films has launched a new one-stop production network, Holiday United Group (HUG). HUG is made up of Holiday Films for broadcast production, Nimble Content for online video and digital projects, Recess Post for editorial, colour, and VFX, and The Cavalry for stills photography. 

Each of the four divisions offers a unique production service that can be engaged on its own or can be bundled together to seamlessly deliver a fully integrated production solution. “Agencies and clients today are being challenged to produce more content across more platforms. HUG allows them the ability to stretch their resources,” says Holiday executive producer, Derek Sewell. “Bundling our services together can be a great way to make your budget go further but it can also streamline a complex process. This is not about being cheap, it’s about thinking differently and creatively with our clients to get the most for their money.”

Holiday Films is the foundation HUG is built on. Its reputation for quality, integrity, and innovation is what makes this new production model work. Agency creatives appreciate the high-level of talent across all the HUG companies. Agency producers like the simple and streamlined process. And clients love both the value and direct access to all key team members resulting in clear communication and faster speed to market.

Nimble Content, run by execs Andrew Lynch and Michael Corbiere, continues to produce award-winning, innovative online content. Their hybrid team approach to production has earned a reputation for delivering first-rate quality on tight budgets. Nimble producers are problem solvers at their core. Their expertise can be tapped into across all HUG services. 

Recess Post is a new full-service editorial, colour, VFX, and finishing facility operating in the new Holiday Films headquarters. With two fully decked out edit suites and a colour suite, Recess is staffed with top freelance editors, colourists, animators, and post FX pros. Projects have a dedicated supervising producer from pre production through finish ensuring perfect coordination. This is the ultimate synchronicity between production and post under one roof.

More often than not, a typical commercial or online shoot combines both video and stills photography and there can be conflicts between the production teams looking for advantage on set. The Cavalry provides a diverse roster of top stills photographers that have experience working on film sets and are seamlessly integrated into the main production early so there are no surprises, equipment is shared, and everyone gets what they need. Of course, the photographers can be engaged on standalone stills shoots as well. 

Bundling services isn’t a new business idea but it is one that is being welcomed in the commercial film world. “Some may still prefer to shop for our individual services, and that’s fine,” says Josefina Nadurata, executive producer at Holiday. “We’re happy to work that way but for those times when you are really trying to do more with less and keep creative high level, HUG can be a smart solution.”
