TheHost

Tors Grantham

Tors is a television professional, who studied all aspects of television production before launching her career spanning almost a decade. She's worked with a BAFTA nominated production team, has her own entry on imdb.com, and has even walked the red carpet several (terrifying) times.

She's had chips thrown at her by David Tennant (it was an accident, he's got terrible aim), she's interviewed some amazing actresses, and she attended the cast and crew screening of Empire Strikes Back at the grand old age of four. 

Now she lives in south Wales with a large dog and a small cat, where she uses the knowledge she gained in her television years and beyond, to help online biz owners step in front of the camera and connect with their audience.

Jade said

"For me, there was going to be some mind shifts to be made for sure, around swapping from taking portraits to creating films." - Jade Hicks on #videomatterspodcast

"As a photographer, the biggest shift I had to make was the freedom that I had with film compared to photography." - Jade Hicks on #videomatterspodcast

"Give it plenty of light coming in from the front, that’ll fill in all the wrinkles, and it’ll give the nice shadow under the chin and light the rest of the face." - Jade Hicks on #videomatterspodcast

"Always give your customers a feeling, because at the end of the day it comes down to a feeling people get from you and your brand." - Jade Hicks on #videomatterspodcast
