Helen’s six-year career in digital media has included roles at Sony Music, where she became the lead Account Manager for the EU. Her calm and diplomatic approach to high-profile projects such as the X-Factor and One Direction releases led to further roles at BBC Worldwide, where most recently she led the operations team behind the launch of the BBC’s new consumer digital service, BBC Store.
Helen joined the team in July 2016, and brings with her years of experience in building client relationships, running collaborative projects and spotting business opportunities.
Jonny joined the team having graduated from Stirling University in 2014 with a degree in Film & Media Studies. He gained production experience through Sunset+Vine / Global Television at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games, as well as Fremantle Media on Britain’s Got Talent.
As well as working on social media campaigns, Jonny is the go-to guy for shoot logistics. Tanami’s work takes the team all over the world, therefore it’s crucial that everything runs like clockwork. It’s not unusual for a shoot to include multiple filming days back to back in several countries so Jonny’s comprehensive schedules are of utmost importance, along with building and developing positive relationships with local suppliers.
