DAVE

This is Dave, he is the Creative Director here at Dashing Duck Marketing. He started our predecessor, Dashing Bear Productions, in 2018 and has gone on to create countless videos for clients across the years. A huge part of Dave’s inspiration to start creating videos stems from his love of creativity and storytelling. He started out his career as a runner on Saturday Kitchen and went on to work with companies such as BT Sport, John Lewis and Specsavers. His background is in the media industry specialising in producing and editing content for broadcast, social media and internal corporate films. He considers his proudest moment to be working on the London Paralympics. 

LEXY

This is Lexy, she is our Producer. Having graduated from Swansea University she initially planned to go into Journalism or Publishing. With a deep rooted love of reading books and writing stories from a young age she was drawn to the creative side of the production process and decided to approach the creative element of storytelling from a different angle. One of the main things which drew her to Dashing Duck was the storytelling element, be that within video or marketing. Her passion for storytelling stems from tales her Grandmother used to tell her about her journey from the remote island of St Helena to England at the age of 16.

TOM

This is Tom, he is our Copywriter. After studying at Cardiff University he went on to do his Masters at the University of Edinburgh. His initial plans to pursue a career in academia didn't feel well suited for his creative flair and he found himself drawn to the film advertising and marketing industry, which made sense given his love of film and cinema. Additionally, he felt he could apply his skills developed throughout University to create content that he is passionate about. One of the key elements that attracted him to work in advertising and marketing was the dynamic nature of the business and its ability to lend itself to creativity and continual learning. Interestingly, Tom spent seven months living in Goa as a child and says that throughout his time there he learned a lot and gained some amazing experiences.

JOSH

This is Josh, he is one of our Animators and Graphic Designers. He began studying graphic design at Gloucester College and continued his education at Hereford College of Arts studying Graphic  Media and Design. His main inspiration for going into graphic design stems from his love of music and more specifically his appreciation for album covers, record sleeves and clothing graphics. Some of the most influential album covers he attributes to his passion for design include Anderson Paak Malibu, Phoney Ppl Why iii love the moon and Tame Impala Modern Classic. We’re lucky to have Josh on our team, not only is he a great animator and graphic designer but having been hit by cars twice in his life we know he's a robust team member who can handle whatever life throws at him. 

CALLUM

This is Callum, he’s our Business Development Assistant & Graphic Designer. After realising that Games Design wasn’t fulfilling his creative interests, he found his real passion while studying Graphic Design at Gloucester College. He then went on to study Graphic Design at Falmouth University, where he learned to animate, work with augmented reality, create apps and design websites. There’s a lot more to Callum than just his education, though: while falling in love with Cornwall during his studies, he discovered a fondness for long-boarding and paddle-boarding. He would spend his evenings after university sailing the streets, bays and harbours around Falmouth, terrifying the locals.

BLY

This is Bly, she is one of our Junior Animators/Illustrators. After studying TESOL and Japanese at the University of Central Lancashire, she found that the career path wasn’t for her. Art and animation have been her true love since she was 12 - inspired by Disney movies and an online community of teens making cat animations on YouTube, she started making amateur animations in MS Paint and Windows Movie Maker. When she’s not mastering better software, she’s travelling to see faraway friends. Her current list of destinations includes Norway, Croatia, Romania and California and with someone waiting for her, she’s never without a tour guide!

BENJAMIN

This is Benjamin, he's one of our Junior Editors and, like the rest of our team, his background is creative through and through. Holding a grade 7 clarinet, Benjamin originally planned on putting his musical talent into scoring films -- but his passion changed when he was introduced to video editing by a teacher in the film industry. He went on to get a degree in Film and TV from Southampton Solent University. Benjamin tends to be something of a perfectionist, but he channels this habit into crafting delicious cocktails both for himself and for others after years of working behind a bar. When he's not editing powerful films or redefining how we drink, Benjamin also loves to travel, having explored Italy, Japan, Texas, Budapest, and a host of other European destinations; a list he's keen to continue growing.
