Chris Tomkins – Director/Editor.
To say Chris has done it all is an understatement (and an edit in itself). He’s produced, directed, edited and written for television, radio, internet and corporate communications.
He’s worked TV commercials, music videos, animation, short films, corporate videos and the odd documentary.
Chris’s incredible post-production skills mean that all of our projects can be edited in house – including graphics, special effects, colour grading, green-screen comping, and just about any visual requirements you could ask for.
Chris completed a BA in Film & Television at Monash in 1998, with a major in Psychology on the side that he has already repressed. He’s studied cinematography in New York and has colour-graded a number of independent feature films, both in Australia and the USA.
Marisa Brown – Producer.
With an extensive background in writing, theatre, and music, Marisa joined Ready to Roll in early 2006. Since then, her exceptional organisational skills (coupled with the fact that she’s only one who knows where the spare pens are kept) have seen her rise through the ranks and take on the role of Producer.
Marisa brings a unique balance of practicality and creativity to her role – not only can she keep a project running on-budget and on-schedule, but she can write, direct, and (if you really twist her arm) play a really convincing background extra.
In the last few years, Marisa has produced dozens of corporate videos, has written / directed / a number of internationally award-winning short films, and still refuses to divulge the secrets of the spare pens to her workmates.
Fleur Saxton – Production Manager.
Fleur has been working professionally in the creative industry for over 10 years, starting out as actor and working extensively across theatre, film and TV. Over the last few years, her skills have expanded to include producing, production managing, costume design and writing, and she joined the Ready to Roll team doing all of these things (and more!) in 2012. Fleur enjoys finding inspiration in unusual places, and has recently been a Writer In Residence at the Old Melbourne Gaol.
