Who we are
Jane’s an experienced media all-rounder who’s worked at senior levels for broadcasters including BBC Worldwide, Discovery International, Turner Broadcasting, STV, Iran International and London Live.
She created and ran BBC London across radio, TV and online before becoming a TV commissioner and channel head for UKTV then MD for Al Gore’s documentary channel Current in the UK.
She trains documentary makers the world over and is Editorial Consultant for the documentary foundation The Whickers.
As well as working as a consultant for media and non-media companies to help develop their content, staff and brands she produces documentary and corporate films.
She is a judge for Broadcast, RTS and BAFTA awards, helped set up TheSmalls.com and is a founding member of Akin – Arundel’s creative collective.
Josh’s experience is heavily rooted in music production and audio/visual mashups. The videos he’s created have generated a huge YouTube following and have led him into making commercial content with major brands such as Toyota, Pokemon, Showtime and LG. Some of his work has been aired on U.S television and cinema as part of integrated advertising campaigns.
This background gives him a good sense for editing and a strong eye for creativity which means he could even turn a stone into something interesting!
He has joined beechtobeach to help expand his experience in filming and to support local businesses in making the audio/visual content they need.
If he’s not making videos he’s either not very well or lost in the music studio.
Jerry worked for local authorities and the voluntary sector for last 30+ years in a wide variety of roles from grassroots support to strategy and project management
Jeremy is the IT brains in the business and is responsible for many of our logistics. He has been production manager for UAMA training workshops in Kampala and Gulu. He is also makes a mean gado-gado.
Sophie is an Artist, Curator and Graphic Designer. She’s also design consultant for beechtobeach responsible for our website and other brand collateral.
She’s a graduate of the University of Brighton with a first-class honours in Fine Art. Her creative quests have led her to Newfoundland, New York and Northern Scotland but she returns frequently to Sussex to be inspired by the Downs.
When he’s not in production he likes to take the sea in or the River Arun in a kayak to remind himself there’s blue sky outside of the edit suite.
