Eddie studied Human Sciences at University and emerged (via Alaska) with a taste for documentary film making. Many years later, having filmed all over the world, from the Payatas dump site in Manila to the wild forests of Siberia, and all sorts of people, from Paul McCartney to the heroic mothers of the Korogocho slum in Nairobi, Eddie understands how to make a story jump from the screen into your heart.

Laura's bio to come!
Jack has studied in Manchester, Vancouver, and London but originally hails from South Yorkshire's steel city. Through his research into online news media and UK clubbing culture, a passion for investigative storytelling was born. After years of pretentiously reciting film theory to anyone who’d listen, he sought to involve himself in the process of filmmaking. This love of deep diving into a story combined with a passion for visual mediums made documentaries a natural fit. Despite finding this calling, his daydreams of becoming a famous DJ continue.
