What is Tiger Bam Production House?
Tiger Bam is a multimedia production house, specialising in promoting the creative industries through the use of digital PR, live events and generating unique creative and diverse videography and journalistic content.
What describes you as different?
We are honest! Tiger Bam Productions has two elements to the way it is ran, firstly we are a community, we are passionate about giving back to the communities that we both work with and have worked with. We do this by showcasing, exploring, and exhibiting talents, ranging from musical, artistic, and visual through our in house Tiger Bam live events and online platforms.
The second avenue is the business, where we provide digital PR, and video branding to creative organisations, businesses, and individuals. We have a deep understanding within specialist fields, we create tailor made strategies to optimise, and strengthen businesses visibility and online presence.
What inspired you to do this as a business?
What inspired us is really simple, we are passionate about Birmingham’s creative community, and we are passionate about creating highly produced digital media products.
On a personal level we have lived in the city for several years, and have had first hand insight into the exciting and diverse range of creativity oozing from the city. It is paramount to what Tiger Bam Productions is about, and it is this that inspired us to partner our love for all things creative and our collective range of multimedia skills and so the Tiger Bam Production House was born.
Do you feel as though you’re taken seriously in the industry?
We don’t feel that our work is about being a man or a woman, yes some might say that the media is a “mans” world, but there are some really talented female figure heads within the Birmingham Media industry such as Julia Willoughby, Alexa Torla, Tessa Burnwood, and Vanessa Jackson, there are so many. The way we see it is; it’s about creating new dynamic and exciting media. As we are a co-operative grass roots company, when we forge partnerships within the industry we see them as forging new professional friendships, we are taken seriously, but we are definitely not the suit wearing, sale jargon kind of company, and we think what you give out is what you get back.
What are you looking to do in the near future?
We have so many exciting ventures on the horizon, having only just finished our university degrees we are looking forward to being able to all our attention into the Tiger Bam Production House.
We would like to expand on what we are doing, get more of our plans developed- at the moment it’s about building up our contacts and networking Tiger Bam Production House. Keep tuned in with us on Facebook, twitter, and Tumblr, we are always looking out for new talent, so if you are interested in getting involved with us, get in touch.
