Lindsay Keith BSc PhD – Creative Director
Lindsay has worked in broadcast television for over ten years, rising from runner to executive producer whilst working across a range of programmes and genres from education (Design 4 Life, Channel 4) to factual entertainment (Scrapheap Challenge, series 4, 5 and 6, for Channel 4) and serious documentary (The Hottest Place on Earth, BBC 1 and BBC Worldwide). Not only is she a highly skilled script writer and programe maker in her own right, but she has also developed the management and business skills required to handle large teams of production staff and multi-million pound budgets. Prior to working in TV Lindsay studied for, and was awarded, a PhD in biochemistry from Imperial College, and as such, is uniquely placed to marry her strong scientific and analytical background with a love of storytelling and scriptwriting. This enables her to weave compelling and witty narratives which are subtly packed with factual information which can then be absorbed in an engaging and entertaining way.
Scott Taylor – Technical Director
Scott has been working in and around the media for more than 20 years, and specialises in first class camerawork, although he is also a highly skilled editor and also an experienced teacher and trainer. Scott has worked on numerous short films and dramas as director of photography, as well as working on factual programmes, live events and with presenters. He has developed something of a cult following for his humorous ob-doc style shorts, and the best homage to Queen’s “Somebody to Love” featuring hairy biker types that can be seen on the net. Scott also works with Christchurch University in Canterbury imparting his considerable knowledge of all things film and video to their resident nippers.
