About Inventome

We are a small independent production company that puts the story at the very heart of what we do. Originally formed in Greece in 1997 the company moved to the UK in 2006. We currently produce from script to screen, this includes pre, production and post-production, all in-house. Collectively we have many decades of experience and have worked with clients and companies on a global basis.

We produce for ourselves or as part of a co-production and are happy to take on bespoke project work, whether that's narrative, advertising or even special venue - theatre, AR, VR and beyond. Our past experience goes beyond just film, tv and media, to encompass design, advertising, development and R&D. 

We do have an agency side to us too and we balance the two sides to our company - making us ideal for any projects that cross over content creation and development. 

We are unable to accept unsolicited scripts.

She’s been awarded scholarships from the Greek Ministry of Culture and Greek Film Centre, bursaries from NYFA and ARHB which resulted in the Masters of Arts in Drama at UKC.  Her first feature,  a Greek-British co-production premiered at TIFF.  Whether behind the camera, buried in her scripts, or directing on stage, Kat’s determination to bring her stories to life is evident and the last 25 years saw her completing numerous award-winning projects, from features to theatre and from music videos to TV pilots.  Crossing into TV production is the next step for Kat with long form and short form series in development.

As a VFX vendor our main tools are our licenses of Nuke X, we also use Modo, Mocha Pro, PFTrack, Houdini, Resolve and the Adobe suite. In many cases we work closely with various manufacturers from a pre-release and testing perspective and are proud to be included on some advisory councils as well. We are well versed in not only the techniques and use of the tools, but also with development and coding, which means building bespoke post pipelines when needed.
