Not so difficult. A Google search on +Renaissance +film + Branagh +ltd.
yielded enough hits to provide the information that the full name of the
company is "Renaissance Films PLC" and a Google search on that phrase
yielded 29 entries, mostly from the copyright notices on Branagh films
in library catalogs. If "Renaissance Films PLC" has its own web page,
they have hidden it well.

Oops. It does have its own web page at www.renaissance-films.com. The
company has a lot going on besides Branagh's Shakespeare work, however,
having put together a deal with Clear Blue Skies, founded by Microsoft's
Paul Allen, to produce five or six new films that have nothing to do
with Shakespeare. Good sounding list.

From what I recall during a mid-90's visit to their Renaissance Theatre
offices, they share space with a graphics firm (an old buddy of
Branagh's?  Not sure).  The RT occupied what would usually stand in for
the reception area, complete with posters.  This wasn't cheap, either;
Branagh cites the need for office space like this as the main reason for
writing his autobiography.
