Local Company Lands Prestigious Business Award

The Wolverhampton based video production and animation company Stone’s Throw Media is celebrating after being named ‘Micro Business of the Year’ at the 2018 Express & Star Business Awards.

The Stone’s Throw Media journey began in 2011 when two students at the University of Wolverhampton - Matt Weston and Mike Chinn - decided to launch their own business with the aim of “making the world of corporate video more exciting and visually stimulating”.

Since then the company has worked on projects with regional SMEs and large multinationals such as…

  • Jaguar Land Rover
  • World Food Programme (a branch of the United Nations)
  • Redrow Homes
  • Dogs Trust
  • University of Wolverhampton
  • UTC Aerospace Systems
  • CrossCountry Trains
  • Wolverhampton Wanderers FC

…with the team now employing seven members of staff on a full-time, permanent basis.

Stone’s Throw Media was awarded the ‘Micro Business of the Year’ accolade at the awards evening held on the 7th June at Wolverhampton Racecourse.

Speaking after the event, business co-founder Matt Weston said: “The whole Stone’s Throw team is absolutely delighted to be recognised with this award and we’d like to thank both the Express & Star and the award’s sponsor the City of Wolverhampton Council.”

“As alumni of the University of Wolverhampton and proud residents of the city itself we hope that our success will help to shine a spotlight on the wealth of creative and entrepreneurial talent we have here in the area.”
