Senior video professional Carl Timms has joined UK-based international agency DRPG as the new head of film.
With over 20 years’ experience in film and video, Carl is an award-winning director and producer with a background in both large-scale corporate accounts and small, independent film.
Across his career, Carl 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.
Carl brings this diverse skillset to DRPG where 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, stated: “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.”
DRPG has seen steady growth throughout 2019, as they bring on new team members and expand globally.
The role of head of film was formerly filled by Dagmar Mackett who has moved on to become DRPG’s global development director, helping the company to achieve and expand on its global presence goals.
Mackett commented: “Leaving the team I’ve built and grown over a period of ten and a half years, I wanted to be sure that it would be in good hands, led by someone with a genuine passion for film, a deep understanding of the industry and an attitude that will inspire and invigorate the team. I believe we’ve found all that in Carl.”
