About us

Welcome to The Holiday United Group or, as we like to call ourselves, HUG.

We’re a multi-disciplinary production house which is a fancy way of saying we specialize in all aspects of production – motion, photography, and post-production. We’re especially adept at combining these skills into a “full-service” production approach for our clients.

Our story began in 2008 with the founding of Holiday Films, built to create top-tier motion work.

Nimble Content followed in 2015 after conversations with clients seeking new ways to approach production in the wake of the digital revolution. The Nimble ethos was born, a creative and budget-friendly approach to capture content specifically for online platforms. Recess Post and The Cavalry Photography soon followed to complete the wrap-around approach our clients told us they needed.

In 2018, we brought our collective together under one name, the Holiday United Group (HUG), a full-service production Group committed to serving your ideas and empowering you to explore new approaches.

Diversity fuels our creativity. By embracing different perspectives, we foster innovation, driving us and our clients toward ground-breaking outcomes.

Listening has not only shaped our journey but ensures we stay aligned with our clients’ evolving needs. It’s how we adapt, innovate, and pave the way forward in advertising.

People are the foundation of our Group. We choose to work with talented people who share our commitment to working hard and being nice.

Our motto, “Potential Realized,” is a commitment to unlocking excellence in everyone with whom we collaborate.

Together, let’s shape the future.
