About Blazing Griffin

Founded in 2015 through the merger of three start-ups, we’ve grown to become a group of BAFTA winning companies spanning video game development, film and TV development and production and post production services.

One Big Diverse Family

A family of talented, creative, fun and passionate people, with the expertise needed to bring out consistently high quality work across all our departments.  We work hard and laugh quite a bit too.  Our leadership team is BAME-, female- and LGBTQ+ led and we’re proud of it. We aim to not only include people with a diverse array of voices, but to promote and inspire them too, especially those traditionally under-represented in the creative industries.

Growing a Wee Bit at a Time

We’re a 45-strong team of Griffins (and counting) here at our state-of-the-art facilities in Scotland which offers an excellent working environment for all our teams. Headquartered in the sunny city of Glasgow, we love a good get-together on the roof-top when the weather allows.
