We Are OC

At OC, we have been proudly partnering with entertainment brands across the globe to deliver award-winning work for over 14 years. Through our team's creative excellence, collaborative culture and understanding of our audiences, we produce work that always excites, engages and delivers - and that is The Art of Entertainment.

We are the passionate consumers of the industry we serve - with film-buffs, series-bingers, gamers, book worms and music-lovers all under one roof, resulting in a hive of curiosity, collaboration and creativity. Storytellers, artists and problem-solvers all working as one to create stuff we love, just as much as our clients do.

Our mission is simple: We help brands entertain.

Are You OC?

Just like the ever-evolving industry we support, our full-service agency is constantly growing and adapting. This fluidity allows us to shift and thrive, delivering the most effective creative and communications for brands that live to entertain - no matter which touchpoint or stage of the journey.

Understanding the needs and solutions for clients as varied as Sony Pictures, Universal, Lionsgate, Disney, BritBox and BBC amongst others, whilst having a focussed, fast-paced work ethic that these clients expect will be the recipe for success at OC.
