MediaMonks announces that the world's leading food and liquids film studio, Caramel Pictures ("Caramel"), joins the global MediaMonks family today. Based in Amsterdam and operating globally, Caramel adds award-winning directors, specialist crew, studios, robotic equipment and over 25 years of craft in high-end digital photography and film for FMCG brands. The purchase broadens MediaMonks Content Studio’s capabilities, as clients increasingly explore in-house, co-location and fit-for-format creative content models.

In a time where the average online video is watched 2 to 6 seconds, high-end product and packaging shots are getting increasingly more important. By joining forces with Caramel, we can now shoot, produce and deliver the best quality content for food and beverage brands – all produced under one roof and fit for every platform and format."Victor Knaap, Main Monk and CEO at MediaMonks
