Joshua Kershaw Videographer

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.

Jeremy Lindsey | Director

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.

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.

Jamie Wood | Senior Design Consultant

Jamie is the ace in our pack when it comes to branding and design work. He created our beechtobeach branding and the look and feel for our newly launched sub-brand Specially Sussex. He is our ‘go-to’ person for all our major campaigns and artwork for ourselves and new clients.
Jamie has 25 years experience in technical illustration and graphic design and we are fortunate that he lives and works within a few 100 yards of our Arundel office.

His broad background in both the production side of filmmaking and editing helps him understand the needs of a project at all stages. He’s created content for Portsmouth College, Portsmouth Sail Training Trust, Flint & Flame and The Wellness Tree Group.
He loves to experiment with green screen, 3D and effects and is in production for a sci-fi drama.
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.
