Meet the team

The Earl Films family is a diverse bunch, with experience and skills honed in far- flung places like Italy, New Zealand, and, er, Leeds. But they’re united in their passion for their craft and making great work that works.

Tim Earl

Founder & Producer

A Japanese-speaking ex-City broker, Tim Earl has been producing videos for corporate and private clients since switching careers in 2007. He still reads the FT and has been spotted checking FX swap rates and bond yield curves whilst on set..

Riccardo Sai

Director

Riccardo Sai is a driven, passionate and charismatic award-winning director who sets out to approach his work with a very characteristic sense for aesthetics and style. When he’s not producing films, he’s growing vegetables for his secretly renowned Supper Club where every mouthful has a unique story (usually in Italian).

Zsolt Sándor

Director / DOP

Zsolt Sándor is a multi-skilled filmmaker with over 15 years experience creating corporate, commercial & documentary work around the globe. With a degree in film from Montreal’s Concordia University, Zsolt has a solid foundation in cinematic storytelling underpinning his work, his mind, and his lustrous hair.

Will Preisner

DOP

A passionate storyteller, Will is a London & Manchester based director of photography and camera operator, with over 7 years specialising in shooting drama, commercials, music promos, fashion, branded content and corporate.

Oliver Cross

DOP / Editor

Whether it’s with his Sony FS700 camera or his Adobe edit suite, Oliver currently adds a little kiwi magic from both ends of the earth, depending on the project. He’s also currently sporting a better beard than Beardyman (though perhaps not quite as good at beatboxing).

Jenna Treat

Hair & Makeup Artist

Jenna is our resident expert in making the people in front of the camera look as fantastic every other aspect of production. Not a single strand of stray hair escapes her experienced eye or fine-tuned tools of the trade.
