Sarke Studio was founded in 1998 as an advertising agency by four passionate filmmakers, producers, businessman and just creative individuals from Georgia. Since the beginning the company has experienced tremendous growth and by 2004 Sarke had become an industry powerhouse with over 300 employees and the largest network of major clients from the Government of Georgia and local businesses to the biggest international brands. The company started to gradually shift its main focus from commercials to films and in 2016 became the major production service company in the country, after the introduction of Georgian film incentive ‘Film in Georgia’.
Nowadays, our portfolio counts over 20 international projects ranging from low to high budgets. In 2017, Sarke Studio expanded outside of Georgia and is now represented in China, UK, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Moldova and Ukraine.
