Carl Timms has joined DRPG as the new head of film.
Timms has over 20 years’ experience in film and video as a director and producer with a background in both large scale corporate accounts and small, independent film.
Across his career he has made promotional films for the public sector, the travel industry, sports documentaries and charities. He was formerly head of production at the BBC/ACE funded digital arts commissioner The Space, where he worked behind the scenes on a number of high-profile arts performance captures and digital projects. He is also the organiser of the annual 2Weeks 2Make It Midlands competition and former board member of Screen Central, both of which promote grass roots filmmakers and the screen industry within the Midlands region.
Timms was also a director of arts-specialist Made Media for 8 years moving from project manager to client services director, overseeing international digital projects for some of the world’s leading arts organisations.
At DRPG he will now be heading up a team of 30, managing creative output, strategic direction, processes and technology.
Timms commented, “This is a dream opportunity to work with a company whose skills encompass the full communications sector. I also love the “anything’s possible” attitude, which is always something I’ve tried to bring to my own video projects. I look forward to leading this team and working with them to make terrific video content”
Ben Wallace, director of digital, states, “His huge range of experience in the digital and film sectors makes him the perfect choice to head up our ever-growing film and video department. We are excited to see what he brings to our team of experts”.
