As a company we are constantly evolving, and always have some exciting news to share! Each week we are working on new projects, meeting interesting people and travelling to places we’ve never been before to work! As you can imagine, we’ve got a lot of stories to Tell. So, we have decided to introduce a newsletter blog of Tell’s headlines from the past month. Starting off strong we’ve got news regarding our environmental impact as a company, some shifts in the structure of our team, and even a new space!
As of this week we can proudly announce that Tell is now an Albert Consortium certified business. For those who don't know, Albert is an organisation that is working to make big changes to the environmental impact of the film and TV industries. As recognised in the March 2020 Green Matters report by the BFI, the production sector in the UK has a responsibility to address climate change due to the waste amassed during production, CO2 emissions generated due to travel, and the raw materials required to run the intricate operation of film production. Albert is the self-proclaimed ‘authority on environmental sustainability for film and TV’, offering tangible action plans to combat your environmental impact and providing a number of training programmes. These training programmes are extensive, with provisions for editorial, production, sports TV, news and even an option to request bespoke training if you feel your company falls outside of these areas.
As a company that continually preaches the value of remote production as the more sustainable action, it was important for us to ensure that our own practices are working towards greener production. We are over the moon to announce that we can now be found on the Albert ‘suppliers’ page as part of their directory of businesses and brands who are making a conscious effort to make a difference.
This past month has seen some significant changes to the makeup of Tell’s team, with some members stepping away and some stepping up. Our project manager Maris Anderson has left the company as she returns to the States to pursue a career in Psychology. As Tell’s first ever official employee, she will be sorely missed. Everyone here at Tell wishes her the very best in her future endeavours. However, we are also pleased to announce that our own Juliana Gomes will be stepping up to take over some of Maris’ responsibilities, leaving us in very capable hands.
Additionally, Kat Chacon has been promoted to Tell’s company producer! Though Kat has not been with the company long, her talent is undeniable. Coming on board originally as a production director, it wasn't long before she found her feet and has improved the company’s organisation and overall efficiency tenfold. Well done, Kat!
Our new office
That’s right, you heard correctly, we have moved to a new office! Yes, okay, it is only two minutes down the hall, but we already feel much more comfortable and at home. This new space gives us the room and opportunity to take on bigger projects and accommodate more team members. The possibilities are endless! We even have bean bags. Keep an eye out on our social media and our blog for an incoming new office tour.
