Andy Pitman

Boss man, advocate of digital for brands and bucket list film producer

Andy founded Kaleidovision back in the 1990s to create innovative music and visual technology for the music industry.

Success came quickly, with work on primetime British TV shows for the BBC, ITV and Channel 4, as well as stadium concerts for artists including Lenny Kravitz, Kylie Minogue and Peter Gabriel. As more clients came on board, Andy set up specialist creative and technology teams to work with FMCG brands, leading retailers and leisure operators.

Working closely with leading TV directors, concert production designers and across multiple industries has given Kaleidovision unusual and valuable perspectives to every project we work on. Today, we devise and develop inspired graphic content, music design and the digital technology to support them. It’s testament to Andy’s own rare mix of creative thinking, tech know-how and brand understanding.

In 2009, Kaleidovision acquired the boutique music agency Music Concierge with the aim of growing it into a global partner for luxury hospitality brands. Andy has been instrumental in building its international team of highly skilled professionals, as well as its successful presence in London, Dubai, South Africa, Hong Kong and Shanghai.

Andy is equally at home writing a script for a brand film, creating a plan for a new brand or developing a whole new business proposition. Earth+Sky is his latest venture: a ground-breaking approach to fitness, with curated virtual classes incorporating high-quality cinematography and motivational practitioners to inspire the body and mind.

Today, the Kaleidovision Group continues to create outstanding bespoke digital sound and visual experiences, adding texture to branded spaces – and leaving their customers and guests feeling uniquely connected to them.

Paul Buckthorpe

Barn-storming tech wiz

Paul’s skills are widespread and generally awesome, spanning organisation, delivery, project and operations management through to a brilliant client-facing, commercial attitude, in-depth knowledge of coding and an inspiring vision for our tech. In a former life, he founded a successful internet agency and broadband service provider. Meaning he understands the technical requirements as well as the business needs of each client. He’s a totally safe pair of hands. In fact, he’s a qualified football coach for adoring U11s and U9s at the weekends, when he’s not converting his barn into a Grand Designs-inspired masterpiece.

Lauren Verge

Music legend, oven watcher

With a mind-boggling knowledge of all kinds of music, Lauren is a total music obsessive. As well as having toured the world playing in bands and Djing for years, she’s been an artist manager and ran her own record labels and club nights. When she’s not devouring new music, watching bands or Djing, you’ll find her spending quality time with her fur baby and the Kaleidovision office pooch, Teddy.

Jon Shone

Heading in the right direction

Jon is a true maestro. From running orchestras, musical directing and performing for some of the world’s biggest acts (including Katy Perry, Olly Murs, Bryan Adams, Gabrielle Aplin…), he worked for major record labels and management writing and performing pop and RnB. He worked on TV’s X Factor and Walk the Line, lectured at various music universities, then moved into curating sound design for hotels.
He brings his vast show design knowledge, along with an obsessive desire to deliver outstanding experiences for people through sound and music.
Jon’s claim to fame (and it’s a big one) was being Musical Director of the world’s biggest boy band, One Direction, playing iconic venues such as Madison Square Gardens, Wembley Stadium and a recording-breaking 13 nights at the O2 arena.

He has a solid intuition for what each client is looking for, managing projects in different business sectors with a deft hand and helping us grow our brand in an exciting emerging market.

Peter Day

Bringer or business, builder of brands

A born entrepreneur with a CV that’s as long as a Ken Follett novel. Strategic creative planning, international sales, branding, marketing communications, product development, project management… he understands it all. Peter has the golden touch when it comes to making client contacts and bringing in new business for us. How does he do it? We have no idea. But he does. He lives with his family in a little village by the beach in Hong Kong, travelling widely to spread the news of how Kaleidovision can help build brands using digital and music. Allegedly, his mother was in a well known Scottish country dance band, but that hasn’t held him back…

Billy Sheppard

Animated music mover

Billy has been animating and producing electronic music since he was 13 years old and is completely self-taught in 3D and 2D animation and music production, the clever thing. After gaining a Media Production qualification, he freelanced as an animator and designer, before taking up positions as Lead Motion Graphics Designer and Animator. He may be young but he has a wealth of experience, we’re lucky to have him! As arguably the most chatty member of the KV team, you’ll often find Billy entertaining the office or shopping for office treats! Goodbye waistline.

Amy Henaghan

Marketing and brand supremo, process queen, cake maker

With a Marketing degree with Psychology, Amy really gets it. She has an incredible intuitive approach to branding, creative, consumers and contemporary culture that’s a real touchstone for our agency, understanding the mix from every stakeholder’s point of view – and a real flair for social media. She’s a master at liaising with creatives and techies to make sure that everyone is in tune, and inspires us all by her ability to make things happen… exactly the way they should. And you have to admire someone who spends the morning whipping up cupcakes then shouts her head off at Chelsea FC all afternoon.

Nick Soons

Bearded music addict and connoisseur

Our in-house music master is an unashamed hipster who gets what’s going down, and brings his love for all things music across a wide variety of genres from underground and disco-inspired to funk. He worked for six years in hospitality, so understands the industry from the inside out, giving him an in-depth insight into creating the right bespoke playlist for an independent restaurant right up to nation-wide companies. He’s a footwear hoarder – shoes, trainers, sneakers, you name it, he’s edging triple figures – whose gargantuan beard has been known to stop people in the street. Probably checking if there is a family of windrushes living in it. Really.

Graham Rawle

Swimmingly good skills

After years of business development in the luxury beauty sector at Proctor & Gamble and working with state-of-the-art speech recognition software, Graham landed at Kaleidovision with his impressive business acumen.
His background in music is still a large part of Graham’s makeup, and he plays guitar and piano any chance he gets (including for the BBC). And a little-known fact: he is a former competitive swimmer who once represented England, and still makes quite a splash at the local pool.

Guy Edwards

A high-flying achiever

After 20 years in the travel industry working with global luxury hotels and resorts, airlines and cruise operators, Guy brings a wealth of experience in developing and managing client relationships and partnerships across multicultural and multi-dimensional businesses. And our clients just love him.
Guy is most at home in the great outdoors, where he goes hill walking and mountain biking to coaching FA football and belonging to the British Exploring Society. And he’s a qualified pilot so he’s seen it all from a different perspective.

Paul Damian

Visionary creative with his eye on the target

Paul is one of our visual gurus, as good at giving direction and coming up with concepts as he is directing 3D motion graphics animation or taking shots. His short films have been officially selected for Cannes and Locarno, and we think he’s one of the best video editors around. He constantly astounds us with his brilliant, out-of-the-box ideas that push visual storytelling to the limit. You can tell by his haircut and headwear that he lives and breathes art-house cinema and experimental exhibitions. And his great hidden talent? He’s a table tennis master and a champion archer.

She’s had a host of customer-facing roles, from casual dining to retail, and developed her considerable organisational skills at a financial consultancy in her previous role.

Nick Spratt

Chat show host in the making

Our Helpdesk guru has amazing people skills that run from advising, problem solving and a bit of counselling thrown in. He’s been with us around eight years, so his knowledge of the company, products and systems is encyclopedia-like. His attention to detail and quick wit are legendary at Kaleidovision Towers, and his great claim to fame is that he used to work for Cirque de Soleil in Australia… but don’t ask him to do anything trapeze-related.

Fi Clarkson

Glastonbury champ

Fi is one of our headphone-wearing brigade who keeps sites and systems on the crest of relevant sounds. She’s right on the curve of current music, festivals and moshpits, but her broad tastes run all the way from indie and funk to 90s rock ballads (we weren’t supposed to say that) helping her pinpoint the right sounds for brands, and she’s been doing it for more than a decade. In her downtime, she’s usually cooking, baking and eating – and her claim to respect is that she’s clocked up 11 Glastonburys, more than anyone else in the agency.

Oh, and he can update you in one of the three languages he speaks fluently.

Sami Fahmy

Tech boffin, kitchen wizard

If your IT has hit problems, Sami will get you through. He’s a master problem-shooter who keeps his eagle eyes on the servers, hardware and infrastructure across all our client sites. His mission: to ensure smooth-running functionality. His idea of fun: toying with Linux boot issues and hardware upgrades… things the rest of us have long accepted that we will never understand. But most surprising is that he worked in catering in a previous life, and once managed a birthday function for Vinnie Jones.

Luda studied to be a chef, but shelved the spices and moved into quality and training at Sony for 16 years. She arrived at Kaleidovision with her boundless positivity, enthusiasm and drive, applying her razor-sharp attention to detail and problem solving mind to making music tech work hard.
Food is still a big part of her life, and she concocts amazing edible works of art at the weekend for herself and friends.

Daniel Evans

Musical marathon man

A real live wire with a brilliant understanding of the Middle East and fantastic music credentials, Daniel started out working within corporate travel management before side-stepping into hospitality and finding his true vocation at Music Concierge.

He brings us strong client project management acumen, a huge knowledge of how the Middle East hospitality market works and sound overall business management skills, as well as a wide knowledge and appreciation of music across all genres. It allows him to assist with running the regional Music Concierge Emirates office in the Middle East.

Daniel’s an endurance sportsman with multiple marathon and Ironman70.3 finishes, giving him a gritty determination to see a job through. He wants to run the 250km, 5 day Marathon des Sables ultra-marathon across the Sahara, the way you do. To make up for the crazy exercise, he’s also a good cook – who always enjoys eating what he makes.

Ollie Hird

High-class action hero

His qualification in International Hospitality Management and experience working for luxury hotels (including the Savoy and InterContinental London Park Lane, if you please) has stood Ollie in good stead. He’s a real people person, great at relationship building and client management, and with a real passion for the hospitality business.
He’s also a sports nut, playing football (any Arsenal fans out there?) and entering various endurance events like marathons and triathlons. He just can’t be stopped.

When he’s not being a total tech whizz, he is pounding the pavement in 5k, 10k, half- and ultra-marathons…. If there’s a road, he’ll run it.

It gives her second-to-none account handling skills, with an approach that is always calm and measured, and a knowledge of marketing, tech and music that are dazzling.
When she’s out of the office her creative juices bubble up, and she paints, sketches and hangs out in galleries.

Matthew Pollard

Music maker, problem solver

Matthew is the real muso deal. He travelled the country as a roadie for a covers band, freelanced in live mixing and recording, recorded as a session musician and was slide guitarist, vocalist and drummer for psych band Wavesweeper. After a stint in China as a teacher and voiceover artist, he landed at Kaleidovision, where his technical audio skills are used to head off problems and give our clients the smoothest of experiences.
When he’s not at his desk, he collects and repairs old recording tech like microphones, guitar pedals and synthesizers. Music is truly in his blood.
