Nick Williams

Director / Owner

Nick set up Feral in 2014 after working for several years as a Producer in one of the largest animation studios in Manchester. Armed with a laptop and a desk in his front room, he decided to leave the safety of the pack and go Feral.

Even though the business has now grown, Nick is still involved in all elements of the business. From filming and editing to business development, project management through to sweeping up, making brews and feeding the studio dog.

He is a life long Manchester City fan, a Dad of three, and attempts to play golf sometimes.


Sophie Williams

Head of Production / Owner

Sophie has a strong background in Project Management, working previously in a global IT business, overseeing large-scale projects and constantly delivering on time and to budget.

Sophie produces our animations, pre-production planning on all shoots and is our financial genius. We’ve also used Sophie’s voice as a voiceover on a few of our animations!

If she’s not in the office bossing us all around, then you’ll find her up to her neck in vegetables in her garden – you couldn’t possibly meet anyone who loves gardening more than her..  


Ryan Hopkins

Head of Post Production

Ryan had over 7 years experience editing at one of the leading post production houses in Manchester before joining us, where he was working on various broadcast shows for the likes of the BBC, Cbeebies, ITV, Channel 4 & Channel 5.

Ryan is regularly involved in setting up and filming and editing content for us at Feral, and is an experienced camera operator and editor. 

He’s our resident petrol head, and loves F1 and most things to do with cars..

He is now involved in the filming, editing and motion graphics creation for our expanding client list, and has recently worked on projects for the RHS, The NHS, Waters, StreamGM and many more..

Kris Follows

Kris joined us at the beginning of 2022, and brought a wealth of experience of shooting and editing to the team. He’s a graduate of Staffs University, and has several years experience working with production companies in the UK & Australia.

Throughout this past year, he has been very involved with the capturing and editing of content for the likes of Man City, Waters Corporation, interactive investor, ABB and Nexperia.

Barney is quite possibly the most important member of staff, who joined us over seven years ago. 

He’s essentially our front of house, where he meets and greets all of our visitors with a warm welcome (tongue). 

He enjoys long walks on the beach, squirrels, food and shouting at cyclists.


Whether it’s a TV commercial, brand film, live event, corporate video, internal communication film, documentary or music video – we can help.


We can edit our footage or any existing footage and will happily work as a freelancer / collaborator with other production companies and / or film makers.


We have a rich history of producing 2D and 3D animations, we love adding motion graphics to all of our productions.
