Tim Maynard

Tim is an experienced producer, director (and post production whizz) with an huge and varied list of clients and credits, both editorial and branded. His work has been seen on BBC, ITV and Channel 4. A long-standing interest in print media has also led to contracts with titans like The Economist, The Guardian and The Times.

Tim is highly tuned into each step of the production process. He builds strong client relationships in an efficient and conscientious fashion. He is an expert at bringing complicated messages to life, having spent his formative years in the edit suite honing the craft of story-telling for clients.

Tim takes pride in his additional work across the globe for humanitarian causes, most notably through his film-making for Christian Aid and VSO. That interest in the non-profit sector has led to Zest focussing around half of its efforts working in the charity film sector, both home and abroad.
