About Double Farley Ltd
How we work: We’re passionate about helping people and organisations work in new ways; to thrive in rapidly changing environments.

We believe the best way to do this is to develop products and services in partnership with our clients. We don’t offer off-the-shelf products or believe in one-size-fits-all solutions.

We’re proud to offer unique products and services that are robustly evaluated and quality-assured.

What we do: film

We make educational and documentary films; from short to feature length. We pride ourselves on providing filmmaking services that meet the differing needs of our clients.

As well as making films, we teach people to use the equipment they have to make great educational and factual films; whether using a smartphone or a film-grade camera.

What we do: learning

We create adult learning and assessment experiences that work for your learners in your context. We develop learning and assessment resources for use online, blended or face-to-face use, facilitate learning, and train other trainers.

We are specialists in developing active and collaborative learning and assessment activities that support high-quality on-the-job learning.

What we’ve done: awards

In 2017 our feature-length documentary won “Best Emerging Director” and the only Special Mention in the “Best New Zealand Feature Documentary” category at New Zealand’s Documentary Edge festival.

In 2016 we won the Supreme Award at the Whanganui Regional Business Awards, as well as Best Professional Services and Best Digital Business awards.
