New Talent For The Crewing Company

The Crewing Company (TCC) has added three experienced craft people to its freelance roster as it looks to strengthen its talent pool across all areas of the TV and film business.
The trio are Tricia Temple, a hair and make-up artist that worked on both the Queen's Jubilee celebrations and 2011's Royal Wedding, director of photography Spencer Franks who has credits for all the main terrestrial channels and James Osborne, a colourist that worked on 'The Chronicles of Narnia, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.'
TCC joint-managing director Stuart Hatton said: "Many of our producer clients like the idea of being able to get lots of their team from the one place, whether they're pre-production, production or post-production. As a result, we're always looking to add to the choice and variety of talent that we can make available. By adding hugely talented and vastly experienced people like Tricia, Spencer and James to our books we are continuing to do that."
Tricia Temple is a hair and make-up artist that has worked across commercials and fashion as well as TV and Film. Her areas of expertise include HD, period and vintage hair and make-up, wig dressing, haircutting, make-up effects and prosthetics.
Most recently found working at Sky, Temple has also brought her hair and make-up artistry to programmes for BBC, ITN and Channel 5. Having led Canadian broadcaster CTV's 10-strong team of hair and make-up artists working on coverage of the Royal Wedding in 2011 she also completed a stint for Fox News during this year's Jubilee celebrations. Her non-TV work includes beauty shoots with the supermodel Lily Cole.
Director of Photography Spencer Franks, who specializes in documentary films and factual series, has worked on shows for many of the major UK broadcasters including BBC, ITV and C4 as well as Discovery Channel, National Geographic and Sky. Fluent in both Sony XDCam and Panasonic Varicam, Franks' credits include Guinness World Records (ITV), Digging for Britain (360 Productions/BBC), Obsessive Compulsive Cleaners (Betty TV/C4) and Britain's Most Extreme Hoarder 2 (RDF/Discovery).
James Osborne is a vastly experienced colourist and online editor. During 2012 he worked as a data lab and dailies colourist on "I Give It a Year" and "About Time", two Working Title Films. Before that he spent time with Sky, The Mews and at the National Film and Television School. A former senior editor at Pepper Post, Osborne was also a DI colourist and lead conform editor on the 2010 feature film The Chronicles of Narnia, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
All three new signings are available immediately via The Crewing Company.
