About us

A 'Datum Point' is the defining mark from which all things are measured. We felt that our name should reflect the heritage of the city to which we belong. In the dynamic city of Glasgow the ship was dominant and a datum point was the mark from which all dimensions were measured during construction.

Since Datum Point Productions started in March 2010, the company has worked with...
