About us

Ptara ltd is a film and history company based in Aberystwyth, Wales.

We provide services to filmmakers and historians, including research, pre-production, writing, and much more.  No, you can’t rent cameras from us, but we can help you decide which camera to get, find out how much it’ll cost, prepare to get funding for it, and even guide you on how to use it.

We have always had a playful attitude to work, but we take our play very seriously.

Our logo and trademark started life as a popular series of videos designed to teach French to Welsh-speaking children.  Our name started was first given to a clay pterosaur designed for a music video.    (We would say dinosaur, but there are scientists amongst us.)

Whether you want to make movies or make history, Ptara can help.
