JEMMA GOBA – Managing Partner

Jemma is the founder and Managing Partner of Tanami. That doesn’t mean she sits in a big office playing with one of those swingy ball things all day. What we mean is Jemma is still very much hands-on. She’s worked at the BBC, McCann and Maverick TV. She’s rubbish at karaoke (not surprising since she’s tone deaf) and she admits to eating chocolate every single day. Jemma’s also an exceptional interviewer, so at least that’s one thing with a microphone she’s good at.

CRAIG DORRALL – Video Production Manager

Craig’s been a theatre stagehand, a landscape gardener and a cocktail mixologist. But it’s his skills behind a camera, rather than a bar, that first caught our eye at Tanami. Before he joined us, Craig ran the New Zealand franchise of a global video production and photography network. He’s since shot the Manchester United first team for Chevrolet and Ferrari mechanics in Kuala Lumpur. Not bad for an ex-welder (yes, he was once one of those too).

HELEN HAMILTON – Project Manager

As a former lead Account Manager at Sony Music, Helen has handled some seriously high-profile projects, including X-Factor and One Direction releases. She also led the ops team who launched BBC Store, the BBC’s consumer digital service, before joining us in 2016. Helen likes toast, running (to offset the effects of toast) and silent movies. Which is, of course, understandable after listening to One Direction.

JONNY SHEPHERD – Motion Designer / Video Editor

Jonny’s a genius with graphics. Kinetic typography, motion graphics, animated vector sequences, Jonny’s at home with them all. Or, more likely, he’s in a darkened room somewhere, bringing his technical prowess and creative flair to our latest project. Jonny likes experimental cooking, supports the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and if you thought ‘genius’ was overstating his talents, get this; Jonny can name all 50 American states in under five minutes.

JACK WILLISON – Filmmaker

Jack’s no stranger to mountains. He was brought up near Glencoe and lived in Chile for a year. So it’s no surprise he first got into making films about mountain biking. He’s shot films for Buff, Morvelo and the Mountain Bike World Cup before delving into music videos, short films and shooting a documentary across the Atlantic Ocean and up the Amazon River. Particularly happiest when running around with a glidecam in one hand and a pint in the other. Although this has only been witnessed once on a shoot in Brussels quite late in the evening. He can also be found colour grading and flying drones – some may say he’s a real… Jack of all trades?

AMY SAUNDERS – Assistant Producer

Amy adores America, photography, blogging, travelling, cinema and true crime documentaries. We hope we haven’t missed anything off that list because, as a total perfectionist, she’ll definitely let us know about it! With an inquisitive mind that is analytical and creative in equal parts, Amy has an eye for detail and is at home feeding into creative sessions, developing online video strategies, and chatting bucket lists over a glass of prosecco. Or a bar of Dairy Milk. Like Jemma, Amy is a bit of a chocoholic. Well, you’ve got to get your energy from somewhere, haven’t you?
