We are a global creative studio working for the movie industry. We have recently opened a new studio in Los Angeles. Our team of developers, designers and producers works across three main products:
- Official Movie Platforms: we build movie ticketing websites for all the major movie studios and over 60 independent distributors globally.
- Creative Builds: we work across a range of creative projects, specializing in interactive video and fully-rendered VR experiences for music and movies.
- Custom Builds (Powster Labs): high-end movie-marketing tools enabling movie-discovery.
Powster is recognized as an innovator in digital movie marketing. We like to think anything is possible when pitching. If we haven’t done it before we’ll pull together, work it out and make it happen. This is the driving-force behind our latest VR experiences. We genuinely have a diverse and talented team working across an exciting roster of technical and interactive builds, as well as large-scale video productions.
