Zoom Films, 2005



Quality is everything. The ethos of Zoom Films is, first, be passionate, creative and imaginative in the pursuit of great storytelling. Second, be mindful of the traditions of the past and, at the same time, always be open to the exploration, understanding and development of new ideas and techniques. Take risks and make something happen.





The limited company was established in 2005 to focus mainly on producing Cassius Matthias’s portfolio of short films: Trent 2 Rent (2006), Bucco Blanco (2008), Holler (2009), It’s A Serendipitous Thing (2010) and The Public Benefits (2011). Matthias’s outlook is continuing to develop and expand. With this in mind, he is exploring ways to consolidate and build on the Zoom Films foundations and actively channel his creative ambitions to forge collaborations and produce great work.

Zoom projects are starting to pop up in surprising places. For example, under the Zoom banner Matthias produced a time-lapse viral, with music by Rollo Armstrong of Faithless and vocals by Dido, for lifestyle property developer Bliss Space. He also collaborated with one of i-D Magazine’s ‘fashion stars of the future’ Bronwen Marshall, to create an iPhone 4 film for her Autumn/Winter 2011 collection.

More recently, in collaboration with the independent Aya Theatre Company, Matthias conceived and produced a unique feature-length film version of a semi-staged reading of an adaptation of George Orwell’s first novel Burmese Days.

Currently in development is a slate of long-gestating original screenplays written by Matthias. Please visit again for updates and further news.
