About Us

Rattling Stick was founded in 2006 by Daniel Kleinman, Ringan Ledwidge and Johnnie Frankel. A nimble production company with an unmitigated belief in quality creative output, we are no longer home to solely commercial production. We produce high quality creative work in many forms, be that commercials, branded content, music videos, documentaries, title sequences or feature films.

At the heart of Rattling Stick is the conviction that all great communication starts with great story, irrespective of what it’s called, how long it is, how much it costs or where it lives. What excites us is brave, high quality, captivating content that makes its audience feel something. 

Rattling Stick’s highly creative team ethic has been consistently recognised and awarded within the advertising industry and beyond. We have picked up many shiny accolades including Cannes golds, Grand Prix and Titanium, golds at the British Arrows, Creative Circle, Clios and Ciclope. Plus several D&AD pencils of all colours, including the prestigious black pencil last year. The British Arrows Production Company of the Year has been awarded to us four times and we’ve topped the Televisual Peer Poll for the last six years. In 2018 we won Production Company of the Year at New York Film Festivals & made AdAge’s Production Company A-List.

Now home to sixteen directors and with an office in the US, Rattling Stick remains a spirited production company, whose directors challenge, complement and encourage each other with the work they produce.
