How did Irresistible come about?
Independently owned and operated by four partners, Irresistible Films has been trading since February 2007. Irresistible came about through the merging of three complimentary, specialist moving image companies. Recognising the growth in more diverse media campaigns, Irresistible built a bold vision to offer a comprehensive and integrated suite of video services to both brands and agencies alike. Irresistible were clear forerunners in bringing the high production values of traditional commercials into the digital arena. Creating successful and high quality work led them into cross-platform projects in the exciting advertising, music and fashion industries all of which make use of digital as a key component. As such Irresistible have forged a reputation as highly creative producers of effective and entertaining films.
