Behind-the-scenes with Enter Yes

We peeked behind the red door at No.25 Donegal Street in Belfast's Cathedral Quarter and caught up with Enter Yes - an animation, VR, motion graphics, VFX and gaming studio.

With a passion for storytelling, Enter Yes have created beautiful independent work as well as worked with high profile clients including BBC, HBO, Disney and Sony. We talked about the balance of creativity and commerce when running a business in the creative sector and how to scale up, become internationally renowned and build relationships with clients abroad.

Teamwork is an important part of Enter Yes’ ethos. We tried to get to the bottom of how to maintain good work-life balance and your friendships and relationships at work as well as how to stay on top of it all.  Ahead of releasing the podcast, here are some behind-the-scenes photographs and some highlights from the interview:

On inspiration:

"It's about variety and being a part of a lot of different things."

"I've always been fond of travelling since I left university. I've got a great kick out of sleeping on a park bench in India right through to staying in a really nice hotel somewhere and it's that variety of looking at things from different perspectives that -kind of- centres me."

On working relationships:

"It's important to have boundaries but at the same time, it's important to have somebody you can trust." "One of the benefits of people that you trust is that you know that they're invested in the company and the projects."

Best advice:

Brian Keaton advised me that "Cash is king." That is probably the most important piece of advice I have ever gotten.
