Turtleback Productions is a flexible, dynamic film production company. We enjoy what we do and believe that our love and passion comes across in the quality and originality of our work. We pride ourselves in having a dedicated personal approach to everything we work on.


Turtleback Productions was founded in 2011 by Daniel Barlev, who after years working in the film, TV and video industry saw that there was a need for a different kind of a production company that has a flexible model that can be tailored in terms of personnel and structure to suit the clients’ needs from project to project.  By having such an agile approach, we can keep our overheads to a minimum, which translates into the best production value for our clients. Through our excellent connections throughout the UK and Europe, we can source exactly the right talent for your project. 


Among the many esteemed clients we have worked with are pharma companies and medical organisations including Roche, Johnson & Johnson, DePuy, Janssen, Bayer, Actelion and the European Society of Medical Oncology. We have also worked with many major non-medical brands including Converse, Studio Artois, Nationwide, Nokia, Kaspersky Labs, Lady Geek.


We make it our business to make your business shine and we collaborate with professionals from complementary industries, helping us to create the best product suited to every budget. Below are some of the services at your disposal when you hire Turtleback Productions:

Branding & Graphic Design

Whether you have an established brand, need assistance creating a new brand, or just want something that looks great, our designers can help. We fully understand the needs to work within the spirit of brand guidelines to create products that sit well within your existing materials. At the same time, if you need something completely different and highly creative, we can do that too! 

From graphic elements that come to life in your video, through character and environment design for animation, to branding and printed marketing material such as logos, flyers, brochures, exhibition booths, and many more. Just tell us what you need and we will be more than happy to help.

Here are a few examples:

Scriptwriting and other content development
