Richard Chambers is a multi-award winning producer/director with over 20 years experience making documentaries all over the world for most of the major international broadcasters. His films are usually driven by engaging and charismatic presenters based on strong editorial stories. As a development producer he has also achieved over 30 hours of original broadcast commissions. Having spent six years in South Africa dodging Cape Dutch, living in Amsterdam, he now has no-where to hide.

Laimis has over ten years of experience working as a producer on projects as diverse as art-house fiction films, documentaries, news items, feature films, and television programs. He is always prepared to go the extra mile for the production and the idea of waking up in the middle of the night and hiking for many hours, against the clock, to the top of the mountain for that perfect shot of the sunrise - is all in a days work! Suffice to say, he relishes a challenge and his mantra is always ‘bring it on!’.
