    • Phil Bland

      Creative Director

      Phil was the very first employee of Reels back in 2004 and is the driving force behind much of our work. Phil has the ability to bring concepts to life and develops scripts with real creative style. Also an excellent producer, he is really beginning to make waves in the UK film industry. Phil loves his music nearly as much as he loves his films!

    • Joe Gordon

      Production Director

      Joe is Reels in Motion’s safe pair of hands. With over 10 years experience heading up the Production department, we challenge you to find something he hasn’t done. From filming at height, underwater or on top of fast moving vehicles, Joe has it covered. He is a passionate Stoke City fan and loves Christmas.

    • Matt Hubbard

      Accounts Director

    • Tom Karklins

      Head of Production

      Tom came to us from a strong video marketing background and has helped improve the way in which we advise our clients on video marketing. The ultimate all rounder, Tom is already establishing himself as both a handy cameraman and creative editor. Needless to say he is becoming increasingly popular amongst the team…

      …which has absolutely nothing to do with his home brewed beer!

    • John Cowan

      Production Manager

      With over 20 years of experience under his belt, John has worked with and delivered video content for many well known brands including BT, Marriott Hotels, Tui, The BBC, ITV and The Ministry of Defence to name just a few.

      As well as an accomplished production manager, he has a wealth of experience behind the camera, in the edit suite and is also an accredited CAA aerial drone pilot.

      Being a connoisseur of the finest malts has absolutely nothing to do with him being a kilt wearing Scotsman! (This also goes down well with Joe )

    • Nick Butler

      Head of Animation

      Nick is Reels’ in house animator and all round after effects guru.Nick came to Reels in 2014 and joined the growing animation department. His ability to create animation that not only wows visually but also holds our clients’ key messages at their core, means that he hasn’t had a day off the editing suite since.
      When unchained from his computer, Nick loves Liverpool FC which goes down really well with Joe.

    • Mark Bakharia

      Account Manager

      Mark joined the Reels team in 2016 and was brought on board to help secure new business and manage client relations in the initial project stages. He always has a story to tell and can often be found in North London supporting Arsenal FC – This also goes down well with Joe!

    • Jade Boulton

      Marketing Assistant

      Jade is our Digital Marketer here, at Reels in Motion and is in charge of every aspect of our marketing. She also assists our clients with how to maximise the marketing buzz produced as the result of uploading a wonderful new video.
      She is a social media whizz kid as well as making a cracking cuppa (perfected from years on the sofa watching TOWIE)

    • Harri Bailey

      Production Manager

      Harri or H was first introduced to the Reels team back in 2010, whilst working on their debut feature film PULP. She was quick to make her mark within the company, tightening up production and helping drive the business to a full service production company. Harri is now Reels’ Production Manager and takes the stress out of every project (for everyone but herself!). She also loves going to the theatre and remembering her roots as a bit of a drama kid.

    • Joe Robinson

      Production Assistant    

      Joe recently joined Reels in Motion to complete a placement year for his degree at Staffordshire University (where our Directors met). If he’s not focusing on our next show reel or behind a camera, he’s trying to work out the next episode of The Walking Dead!

       

       

    • Sophie Hiscock

      Production Assistant 

      Sophie recently joined Reels in Motion, to help build her experience in the video production industry. When she’s not working hard behind the camera, she’s got her feet up while watch Game of Thrones!
