Meet the Team

There is a lot of talent in our small but perfectly formed Sightline team. Each member offers a different specialty and skill and when combined together the Sightline team is one that you can depend upon to deliver.

KEITH THOMASSenior Producer and Creative Director
Keith founded Sightline in 1986. His years of experience producing and directing thousands of business videos, as well as interactive presentations and television commercials, has equipped him with a wealth of knowledge about the different ways of communicating and encouraging audiences to respond.

His skills include directing presenters or actors in all kinds of promotional and training scenarios. As an interviewer, he has helped people from all walks of life and office to deliver their message with confidence. He has the knack of getting the best out of the most reticent or camera-shy participant.

Following his training in art, graphic design and film, Ashley developed his abilities as a high-end video editor through years of practice in the corporate film world.

He has the creative flair and technical skills to deliver the essential wow factor for engaging and stimulating an audience. He is just as comfortable editing a short video message for the web as he is creating a high-end film with green screen effects and multi-layer motion graphics. Most importantly, he keeps it all on track with the customer’s business agenda so that the audience remembers and responds for all the right reasons.
