About Indievisuals

Our vision

We help companies to present their services, products and brands with meaningful images and animations. to communicate clearly.

We burn for good images, freeze for good sound, play with words, indulge in music and compose film experiences that express human diversity. We enjoy immersing ourselves in the world of characters, music and stories that populate our films. This enables us to understand the cosmos of our customers from the inside and thus produce unique experiences. We like to immerse ourselves in the world of people, music or stories that populate our films. This enables us to understand our clients’ cosmos from the inside out and create unique film experiences. Since 2009, we have been helping companies to communicate their services, products or brands clearly and comprehensibly with moving images. We develop concepts & ideas for video campaigns, advise and carry out everything from story development to implementation.

Our clients' stories are important to us and we always find the right solution to convey messages emotionally, precisely and to the point with style.

Our mission

We would like to contribute to this with our films, to make the world a better place and on important social issues such as education, integration, human rights and environmental protection draw attention to this.

Lawrence Richards - Managing Director

In addition to our corporate and television work, we take great pride in making powerful films for clients such as the UN, the Red Cross, Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project and various other NGOs and charities. Our work for the BNI Foundation has helped to raise millions for the education of children worldwide. One of these videos alone raised more than 20,000 euros for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in Malaysia. This proves how effective videos can be in such relief efforts. Another film raised over 12,000 euros for Tareto Maa, a project in Africa to combat genital mutilation.

For these efforts I was awarded the Moneygram Migrant Entrepreneur Award 2019 for social responsibility.
