About Us

A unique agency with service, quality and creativity at the heart of anything we do

Anything's Possible

The art of making 'anything possible' has been at the core of our culture for four decades. We began as a small video production team back in 1980, and through our 'anything's possible' philosophy, spent the next 40 years growing exponentially into the global creative communications agency you see today.

1980

DRPG is born! Dale formed DRP FILMS in 1980, having worked in a video production unit since he left school. DRP FILM’s first semi-commercial film, “Is Bewdley Being By-Passed?” premiered at a public function on 25th June 1980, two days after DRP FILMS was registered. Fun fact: Dale’s passion for cinematography saw him reach the final of the BBC’s Amateur Movie Making Competition in 1978 and again in 1979.

1985

It was apparent in 1985 that the level of work and expansion of the company meant that more room, equipment and permanent staff were needed, so a second office was established in Bewdley. This relieved considerable pressure from the existing studio and made way for the installation of an automatic editing suite.

1997

In 1997, the time had come to look closely at development. In its present structure, the business could not sustain the existing growth level. A strong management team was needed to take the company forward. DRP was no longer simply a video production company. With events, technical, video, multimedia and print divisions all in full operation the drpgroup was born.

Celebrations were held in June while the group launched a new PR strategy, focused on winning industry awards to cement its standing in the marketplace. The new look corporate identity was launched, with new stationery, new brochures, video, website and a promise which would become the beating heart of the business, anything's possible.
