Hugh is a mod through-and-through, and it's his Vespa parked outside. Pure class.There's nothing the guy can't do when it comes to motion-graphics, 3D modelling and special effects compositing. When a client comes to us with an artistically challenging brief, we already know Hugh's going to rock it.
Anna is a vital cog in the JMS machine. Anna came to us with a great track-record at another production company. She now keeps all of our productions ticking like clockwork.

Alice is our champion creative wordsmith, grammatical pedant, and burgeoning producer. Alice provides our clients with refreshing and sharp copy. Frankly, Alice develops creative treatments so cutting-edge we're afraid to touch them without having plasters within easy reach.
Like our very own Don Draper, Tim will often astound the team in creative brainstorming sessions by saying something brief yet breathtaking, profound, and poignant. We don't know where the hell it all comes from - we just embrace the mystery of it all, happy in the knowledge that clients adore it.
George Bernard Shaw observed, 'To be in hell is to drift; to be in heaven is to steer.' Elena steers us all - an organisational linchpin, taking projects from concept to delivery, and transmission. Elena ensures we deliver superb quality productions on time and on budget.

Chairman of The Board, the original and the best. John founded John Mountford Studios - later becoming JMS Group - in September 1983. Following a long career with the BBC, John spotted the opportunity to establish a production company to make advertising for the burgeoning commercial radio industry.
