Five minutes with… Craig Chambers, Producer/Director

We’re so proud of the programmes we make here at Title Role and of the creative, dedicated teams who work on them.

So we’re back with our new blog feature ‘Five Minutes with…’ where we delve into the minds of the people who work here and get to know a few important facts – and some not so important facts – about them! We want to showcase the variety of people we have working with us at Title Role and spend five minutes over a brew getting to know them a bit better!

So last time we kicked things off with Nick Broughall, SP here at Title Role. Up next is Craig Chambers. Craig’s just finished working on ‘The Worlds Most Extraordinary Families’ a six part series which has now been delivered to TCB. He’s now ‘landed’ himself a role as shooting PD on an access documentary with British Airways  and let’s just say he’s flying high… we managed to catch up with him in-between his many jet-setting shoots to grab five minutes of his time.
