A background in the world of advertising is where Steve’s love of the production process began. The pressure and excitement of hitting a deadline was addictive. And he never missed a single one – ever. His experience and career has covered all types of media, but TV, radio and video production has dominated his life for the past 20 years.
With a career spanning both art and creative direction for such agencies as Mallet McCormick, Foote Cone & Belding, Saatchi and Saatchi and NGFK, Richard’s pedigree is impressive! He’s directed almost 150 TV commercials and corporate films in the last ten years, with an occasional venture into print and radio.
From studying filmmaking at art college, Iain’s time in the industry has taken him from blurry analogue machine-to-machine crash editing into the pin-sharp world of non-linear 4k. It’s not a journey he’d care to reverse, especially “as I get older and weaker, kit is getting smaller and lighter – perfect synergy!”. Iain’s attention to detail is obsessive, and he often has to be told to stop.
Lucy studied Fashion and Photographic Makeup in Brighton and has since worked in a wide variety of fields, from music videos to fashion. She is addicted to tattoos and never has the same hair colour for long!
Media is in Mike’s blood – at the age of seven he was on location carrying kit! Mike takes it to the next level, however, and his speciality lies in 3D modelling and animation. If you want to keep Mike happy, just give him an arcane technical problem to solve (he recently designed and built a synchronised 14 video display system for the RCA summer shows) – he’s our Swiss Army Knife!
