Chill Factor Films started it’s life as a collective back in the early 90’s, with roots firmly in the action sports world.  Instigated by Adrian Frearson and with the help of a group of good friends, “Another Dimension” was shot using mainly second hand super8 and hi8 cameras and was edited in borrowed studio downtime. Over the following years, Chill Factor became a more unified collective, with major contributions from fellow Essex boy and skateboarder Mark Munson. Together the duo produced several music videos, snowboard and skateboard films during the late 90’s, under the Chill Factor banner. Titles included ” Ephemera” & “White Label” , which also included the talents of Steve Cardwell, a graphic designer and motion artist. Also hailing from Essex, Steve has also been a mainstay of many productions throughout the years.

During 2001-2004 a shared workspace at the TWB harbour offices in Brightlingsea saw production of commercials for specialist channels,  along with several new titles were also self produced, including the windsurf film “The Hustlers Convention”, co produced with Dave ” Whitey” White.
