Pixel Assist is a Manchester-based Creative Production Company run by Ben Schmidt, a producer with 14+ years’ industry experience.

We consciously stay small, so we can flex our capabilities and build the best team for each project. By tapping into a trusted network of freelancers, we will assemble a specialist crew for your job and offer the best value return for your budget.

Working with companies ranging from single employee start-ups to international giants, our clients enjoy a tailored and dedicated service borne from years of professional experience.

Why do businesses choose Pixel Assist to produce their video, animation and photography content?

  • Reliability – Our clients always get realistic timeframes and expected outcomes for their projects. We will never be ‘flexible’ with the truth to win a job.
  • Service – If we don’t have the capacity to take on a job then we won’t. We’d rather concentrate on delivering the best assets we can for a few clients at a time rather than overwhelming ourselves with an impossible workload. Our clients get a personal level of service which guides them through what can often be a complex set of processes.
  • Outcomes – You will get digital assets that will communicate your message in a targeted, effective way. We produce media content that reflects the investment a client has made in their business when they engage our services.
