A FILM-making business whose adverts have been seen by millions of people has been bought by another Dorset firm.

Poole-based digital agency EPM Digital and parent company Berkshire Hathaway have acquired Wareham-based Rolling Rogues.

EPM Digital was itself bought in 2014 by Berkshire Hathaway, the US conglomerate led by Warren Buffett.

Craig Dyball, president of EPM Digital, said: “Rolling Rogues is a perfect complement for the EPM Digital Group, with their filming expertise, unique background and unparalleled experience in crafting effective narrative content. Their addition bolsters the EPM Digital Group offering and our decades of digital creative experience working with brands across the B2B sector.”

Founded in 2016 by former Royal Marine Jax Davey, Rolling Rogues has filmed campaigns for clients such as Bremont Watches, Jottnar and Osprey.

One ad for the sports watch maker Garmin starred TV presenter Ant Middleton. It was shown before the kick-off of the Rugby World Cup Final 2020 and was seen by 12.5million people.

Jax Davey, group vice president at Rolling Rogues, said: “Joining EPM Digital and being part of the Berkshire Hathaway Group is great for us as a business. It accelerates our global expansion strategy and gives us access to a lot of skill sets we didn’t have.”

Rolling Rogues is currently working on a US launch strategy and full-time States-side support for brands in the region.

Mr Davey added: “It’s very exciting. We have proven our business model works extremely well and it’s now time to take that model to the next stage.”
