The Creative Condition

Dom Smith   Jay Sillence   Mike Cooper

In November 2012, combining their skills in film, marketing and PR, and animation, Mike Leigh Cooper, Jonathan Sillence and Dom Smith registered their new media company, The Creative Condition. With an aim to get people engaged and excited about events, products and projects, the company works with business to raise their profiles.

Their client list is a testament to their hard work: Channel 4, the BBC and a variety of other independent production companies. They have worked as media trainers on pan-European projects with Youth4Media in over six countries and represented the UK for the European Commission. Closer to home, they work with local councils, youth parliaments and a host of community groups.

Mike and Dom have bother previously benefitted from Proof of Concept funding for their independent businesses. Together, The Creative Condition received the Business Growth Fund from the Creative Business Office at YSJ, part-financed by the European Union. This grant allowed them to have greater access to marketing resources, new equipment and business networks. The result of their experience has been new contracts, commissions and potential business contacts.

Dom writes, “It's helped us achieve much more clarity with regards to what we want to do as a business. We're looking to develop new strategies in 2013 to attract more community and corporate clients, and produce excellent video and written content for them. Since we have succeeded in this programme, we feel much more confident in taking our ideas forward in the new year.”

"I can only recommend Mike's services as an essential element of communication projects that brings energy and cleverness through dynamic participation and professional involvement in social networking and audiovisual production." - Georges Drouet, European Coordinator of the EYV Relay PAU Education

"Dom works very well with colleagues and clients, his is really caring and has some very creative ideas which he puts into practice. He is absolutely reliable and gives 200% to his work." - Acting Career Development Team Manager, York St John University
