Peatree Productions was started by Sharan Dhaliwal in 2015, who, after working on numerous video campaigns for large brands, noticed the gap in the social video market. Using her degree in animation, and experience in corporate video production, she creates content from Vine, Instagram, Snapchat and YouTube (to the ever-changing medium of mobile apps).
Peatree Productions has also taken on a publishing role, by creating Burnt Roti - a magazine created by South Asians, concentrating on celebrating South Asian talent.
"Sharan is very professional and I was massively impressed with her creativity and imagination - and had no idea that something so clever could fit in to such a short animation. I am so pleased with the videos, and have had countless comments from friends and clients about how great they are. We'll be working together again for sure." - Emma Zentner, Boom Nails/Boom Things
"Sharan was a joy to work with from start to finish - creative, thorough and well organised" - Harry Harris, Into Film
