Meet the Team
Cathy Sayers - Innovative Producer/Director
Cathy is an award-winning film producer with the ability to bring out the most for her clients. She realises the importance of translating a clients needs into a film with powerful messages. Cathy is a people person with huge creative ability in the visual medium of film. Her experience comes from 20 years working as a journalist, initially with BBC Radio, and then as a film producer and editor for ITV. As Head of Features and Current Affairs for ITV West Country, she realises the importance of good teamwork to produce the best possible product.
Throughout her career Cathy has been applauded for her delivery of fresh ideas to match a brief. Her documentary "Paving Over Paradise" won acclaim at the New York film festival and judges commended it for original thinking. Other programmes she's written, produced and directed also show her talent for tackling a wide variety of subjects with appropriate treatments.
For many years, Cathy commissioned gritty investigative films in a TV series called "Insight." Hard hitting journalism led her to produce a politics series and previously to report for BBC radio in the run up to the first Gulf War. This lies alongside her deep interest in culture. Her documentaries on the artists Beryl Cook, Terry Frost and Robert Lenkiewicz testify to that.
Cathy has high standards and brings energy and efficiency to her work. Her enthusiasm is infectious.
