Talesmith, the high-end factual production company founded by Martin Williams, has expanded its senior team with the appointment of Ulla Streib as COO and Ruth Roberts as Development EP.

Ulla Streib (pictured) becomes Talesmith’s COO, after joining the company in a consultancy capacity in January 2016. Streib was previously part of the senior management team at Darlow Smithson Productions for 16 years.

Ruth Roberts previously worked as Head of Development at Atlantic Productions.

Established in 2015, Talesmith’s credits include Flyride 4D (as Flyride Films, an SPV with Moonraker VFX), Monkeys: An Amazing Animal Family (Offspring Films developed in association with Talesmith) and Hold the World VR (Factory 42 in association with Talesmith).

The team will shortly be announcing two more broadcast specials.

Martin Williams, Creative Director at Talesmith, says: “At Talesmith we are always pushing to produce the most ambitious glossy natural history content, specialist factual films and compelling documentary series. Ulla and Ruth are two hugely experienced industry names and I am thrilled to strengthen our team with this exciting restructure as we expand our portfolio and continue to cover previously unchartered waters.”
