Cut Media creates and produces inspiring content for global brands, with clients including Red Bull, adidas, Continental, Zwift and Real Madrid. The agency was founded in Glasgow in 2007 by former professional mountain biker Stu Thomson. It offers end-to-end video services, from concept development to filming, production, directing and post-production, employing a team of thirteen across the full spectrum of disciplines, with a network of associates all over the world.

Cut Media has made its name through collaborations with athletes and influencers, including Red Bull’s smash hit viral Imaginate, starring mountain biker Danny MacAskill. It works with clients across multiple sectors including travel, FMCG and banking, and was named Scottish SME Creative Agency of the year in 2019.
