Jason Tomkins Gravity Media’s new Post Production Promotion & Development Manager comments on joining the team:
“I couldn’t be any prouder to join Gravity Media at such an important time for the business.
With over 30 years of experience I have witnessed so many fundamental changes in the media production industry: from tape to non-linear, from 4:3 broadcast to 16:9 from tape to tapeless, and from standard definition through to today’s 4k and UHD production techniques.
Having a strong technical production grounding has enabled me to advise clients on the best and most efficient ways to produce content with innovative workflows saving time and money with technological efficiency.
I’ve worked with productions for HETV Scripted Drama & Feature docs, Natural History through to unscripted documentary, studio, and reality shows all of which I look forward to evolving with Gravity Media.
Ed’s vision for the EMEA market is incredibly exciting and I relish the opportunity of joining such a talented senior team to achieve the business growth ambitions”.
