Andrea Olding: Script Writer/Editor

 

Andrea wrote Bongo Reef’s first two film shorts, ran around a lot for one of them, and script edited the next two. A school teacher and mother by trade, Andrea is hoping they know how to make a nice cup of tea in Hollywood.

Mark Langton: Director of Photography

 

It's all about looking like you know what you’re doing - looking serious and professional can often be mistaken for blind confusion. Mark’s been getting paid to play with cameras for over 15 years now, things like Top Gear, Horizon and Tomorrow's World. Independent short films are the Yang to the appalling Yin that is reality/celebrity deep-fried TV.

Peter Godfrey: Composer

 

Peter’s “official” job involves teaching music and attempting to maintain order as Head of Year at a high school in Stafford. By night he throws himself into composing music for film and TV projects, often working until the early hours of the morning at his music desk in the corner of the ironing/junk room which doubles as a recording studio. Not exactly “rock and roll”, but it does the job and it’s better than being banished to the freezing, spider-infested garage!

Howard Rayner: Writer

 

After several years working on stage and in front of the cameras (including two years in the West End musical ‘ Me and My Girl’), it was deemed Howard had a face far more suited for behind the scenes. Hence he now pursues his writing career, in which enjoys creating and developing scripts across a variety of genres - Animal, vegetable and mineral.
