Established in 2005 from funds legally acquired from the late Professor Thrupiece's estate, thrupiecevideo was an early pioneer in the "made-for-television" and "straight-to-video" markets.
Initially it worked closely with the DHRA making short romantic mystery adventures (often by Association favourite Rowena Westlake) under the inspired direction of Dorset cinematographer Cranford Styles. These were generally timed for the Christmas market and capitalised the Company sufficiently to enable it to buy a digital work station.
A later injection of cash from the Hornimint Company allowed thrupiecevideo to expand in to the whole of the West Country, whilst links through the parent company to Orinoco Film and Swiss Canton Digital made thrupiecevideo a "household" name in South America and Basle respectively.
thrupiecevideo was responsible for launching the careers of - amongst many others - Eleanor d'Acquitaine, Brandy Mercedes and art director Neva Laida Fingeroner, as well as (briefly) those of teen-idols Jason Stourpaine and Jennifer-Aniston Threadbone. An early scene in "Lost in a Fog" [now lost itself] featured a near naked Camilla Indoor-Bowls, despite which the film was not a commercial success.
Reliance on Threadbuster Video for distribution was not, Company founder and CEO Mrs Amanda Threadbone later admitted "the smartest move".
