Our story

Bear Jam was born out of a need to do more of what we love.

James, our founder and Creative Director, started the company in 2012.  Frustrated with indecision, office politics and lack of action, James took a leap of faith to escape the city, and a job in the property industry, to follow his passion for filmmaking and creativity.

The team is a collective of passionate and bold, can-doers, who love nothing more than to produce, direct, edit and animate.

We are committed to the creative and production journey and believe it to be just as important as the initial vision.

As it unfolds we enjoy challenging each other, putting ourselves in our clients’ shoes, speaking their language and always striving to be both creative and commercially efficient.
