We are Happy Hour

A response focussed creative production agency

We're an award-winning TV commercial, film and video production agency based in the heart of Bristol. We work with brands of all shapes and sizes to create insightful, responsive advertising and communications.

We're listed in the UK's Top 50 creative agencies by Campaign magazine, which puts us in the top 3 for response TV – we're pretty chuffed with this for a boutique size agency shop in the south west of England!

A team of industry leading creatives, strategists and producers, we've been producing everything from national TV advertising campaigns, to marketing films, corporate videos, online video content, sponsorship idents, and plenty more over the last 15+ years.

We're a full-service creative production agency, so whatever the brief, we'll take care of everything, all the way from script to screen. Happy days.

We're not the only happy ones...

Claire Hoffman
Marketing Associate, QuickQuid

The team at HappyHour could not have been more helpful throughout the development of QuickQuid's new TV campaign. Every piece of the process - from the branding and strategy work to creative design and media production - was extremely well-managed, conceptually unique and of the highest quality. The success of this campaign would not have been possible without Happy Hour's contributions.

Howard Kimberley
Chief Executive, Shimtech Industries Ltd

We have used Tom and the team at Happy Hour on many occasions. Whilst there are doubtless many fine creative production companies around, we have found Happy Hour's combination of responsiveness, all-round professionalism, technical wizardry and unerring ability to deliver a highly polished, yet cost effective product, on time, every time, unbeatable. That is why we will look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.

Alasdair Glen
Direct Marketing Project Manager, Macmillan Cancer Support

Working with Happy Hour was a great experience. They understood that working on Charity DRTV meant trying to be cost effective, not just keeping costs down.

Tom and his team went the extra mile to make sure that we got the end result we were looking for.

I hadn't had a great deal of experience with DRTV at the time, but Happy Hour made sure that I was involved throughout pre-production, shooting and editing and could make the important decisions to get the most out of the campaign.

Gita Luz
Fundraising Manager, British Red Cross

Happy Hour are great to work with, very professional and proactive in their approach to working, offering up good ideas and solutions on how to achieve our project goals.

Alice Lee
Senior Marketing Manager, Pounds to Pocket

Tom and his team have helped us on a number of different projects and have been fantastic every step of the way! Their seamless management of everything from initial creative concept discussions all the way through to shooting and putting our ads on air has been instrumental in the success of our DRTV campaign!

Mark Lucius
Marketing Director, Park Group Plc

We’ve worked with Happy Hour for many years, to deliver our DRTV creative and production. Happy Hour works closely with us to fully understand our proposition and requirements, which has helped them to produce some of our best performing DRTV ads.

Happy Hour is a great team to work with. They continue to impress us with their creativity and production expertise, as well as their flexibility and dedication to meet our (sometimes tight) deadlines. They have a wealth of experience across animation and film production, which allows them to easily switch techniques and provide fresh approaches for each of our campaigns.

We look forward to working with Happy Hour into the future and would recommend them to anyone looking for effective and professional DRTV production services.

Sam Blanchard
Senior Account Manager, The Real Adventure

The Happy Hour team were friendly and professional from the briefing stage through to delivery, producing a polished final video that we were delighted with.

Abigail Davies
Senior Account Manager, DWP

Thanks for all your hard work Tom - the team at Happy Hour are always incredibly knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Above all you are ever willing to do everything that it takes to meet our incredibly tight timings.
