Ambitious U.K. indie Tinopolis has snapped up Video Arts Group, the combo formed by John Cleese to make training films.
The purchase of Video Arts Group by Tinopolis for £2.4 million ($4.8 million) is the latest in a string of acquisitions by the Welsh indie.
Video Arts Group was set up by Cleese in 1972 as a way of bringing humor to the somewhat staid approach of conventional training films.
Since then the combo has made several hundred films for orgs in the U.K. and overseas.
Tinopolis’ portfolio of indies includes Mentorn and Sunset and Vine.
