Visual Bridges has been in business since 2001 – and by then the founders were already experienced tv makers. Our diverse creations for tv and adjacent work fields in the media sector would go beyond the scope of this page, so instead we prepared a selection of examples that appear significant to us.

Serials

Serials, above all, profit from our unusual variety of ideas and our ability to keep on reinventing the wheel.
