Digitom was born out of a passion to create content that inspires, connects and engages with its audience, through factual storytelling.
We are B Corp™ certified, award-winning innovators, with more than 25 years’ experience of creating broadcast and branded content for some of the most ambitious clients.
We have extensive experience of working directly with clients and collaborating with communication agencies. Whether it’s capturing stories to demonstrate sustainability, products or services, or build a brand, to stimulate thought and discussion, we create content that enhances your profile and delivers results.
The company was founded by Tom Chown, at a time when the growing demand for high-quality video content moved from analogue to digital, hence the name Digitom.
Fresh from college in ’97 he cut his teeth learning about TV production under the mentorship of legendary music producer Mike Appleton (Old Grey Whistle Test and Live Aid). Tom then joined the BBC, and worked across news, online and factual, predominantly in the UK, but one project took him as far afield as the North Pole.
In 2007 (when the internet was still predominantly accessed via dial-up) he transferred his storytelling skills to work with Bob Geldof’s production company Ten Alps, working on a ground-breaking online TV pilot that launched 6 weeks before BBC iPlayer.
As broadband speeds picked up, the arrival of smart phones opened the world’s eyes to the possibility of video content on demand. Tom founded Digitom in 2010 and never looked back.
