MPC was founded over 50 years ago with the goal of bringing together the best creative talent to produce the world’s most memorable moving images. As digital media evolves, we think this ambition is more relevant than ever.
We are proud of our international team and recognise the best work is produced by talented and diverse creatives. At MPC, we aim to lead the way to creating a more inclusive industry which is representative of the world we live in. We are proud of our mission to make inclusion an everyday reality at MPC and welcome you to join us in our efforts.
Our creativity, reputation and craft are ahead of the game. Our work inspires the world’s most creative people to have unlimited ideas. Our clients & partners know we can always bring their vision to life and feel unhindered by what is possible and what is not. There is a shared ambition between our clients and creative talent to push every project to the limit and we are all driven by the simple idea that absolutely anything is possible – no idea is too complicated for us to produce to an incredibly high standard. We seek to create never-seen-before experiences that we know audiences will never forget. This takes dedication, hard work and the best artistry across all of our studios.

Our Equal Opportunities policy aims to address the entire employment life cycle, from talent acquisition to rewards and ongoing development.

Sustainable Auto Solutions
In 2020, MPC and Travlrr launched the world’s first sustainable automotive production solution. The solution was built on the ideals of supporting a more sustainable and greener way to produce automotive content that is kinder to the planet. The partnership utilises both Travlrr’s highly curated global network and MPC’s award-winning VFX artists to create productions where all carbon emissions can be offset. This reduces greenhouse gas emissions by over 8 times when compared with a traditional shoot. Take a look at this case study to find out more.
Green The Bid | Podcast

For each brief commissioned to the platform, MPC and Travlrr have both committed to plant trees that will offset the equivalent of 7.5 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions.
MPC takes climate change seriously. MPC’s expertise within CG and production such as real-time, virtual and remote production can cut carbon impact across our projects dramatically. MPC can additionally have a client shoot independently audited and assessed so clients can choose to offset and create a totally net-zero campaign from end to end. Read more.
MPC will not knowingly work on projects which contain statements, suggestions or images offensive to general public decency and will give appropriate consideration to the impact of the projects we work on, specifically on minority sections of the population. We do not work on tobacco advertising. Our company policy also ensures we do not work with great apes on any of our projects.
Supply Chain & Modern Slavery Ethics
MPC operates in an industry sector with straightforward supply chains. This makes the risk of modern slavery or human trafficking very low. Nevertheless, we understand the importance of combatting this and acknowledge our duty to take steps to tackle the issue. We have provisions in our supplier contracts to ensure slavery and human trafficking does not exist in any part of our business. We also train our staff to ensure a high-level understanding of the risks and how to further increase transparency in our supply chain, regularly reviewing and updating our policies and procedures in relation to procurement and purchasing where necessary.
