Carina Thomas - Researcher
Carina trained as a marine biologist in Plymouth before dipping her toes into the murky waters of TV. Since then she has worked on projects for Discovery Science, BBC and Sky including the David Attenborough’s series: Rise of the Animals. As well as diving, Carina loves to snowboard - so if she isn’t in deep water she’ll be on a high mountain instead.
Adam Evans - Edit Assistant
Adam studied Film and TV production in York and soon after found his way to Films at 59 in Bristol. From there he joined the BBC and worked on the perennially popular Springwatch. Adam is a cinephile and regularly makes short films in his spare time. He claims to have an eclectic taste in music but we haven’t seen any evidence of 1D on his favourite playlist!
James Dorman - Composer
We call James our “in-house composer” which is not strictly true as he works with many other people and companies, but he is responsible for the music on nearly all our productions. His compositions are an integral part of the storytelling process but don’ t engage him in a conversation on jazz… unless you have a spare few hours!
