Gander joins former associates and colleagues at Origin following a highly successful first year of trading and the recent acquisition of MCR Broadcast. Formed in 2020, Origin has already delivered more than 140 projects for broadcasters and production companies around the world, exceeding projected turnover.

James Gander has a 35 year career in the industry, starting as a driver at Hyperactive. He has worked for a number of production companies, including Tony Mander Films and Clark Productions, as clapper-loader, focus-puller and eventually camera operator. Returning to Hyperactive, he quickly progressed from engineering into the rental team, before being appointed as managing director in 2007, and then company director in 2016 following Gravity Media’s takeover.

Gander’s extensive career from driver to company director has enabled him to gain significant skills and experience in the industry, which will prove invaluable as he drives Origin forward into the next growth phase.  

Reflecting current trends in the industry, Origin has developed cloud, virtualised and remote services and cutting-edge project design alongside traditional rental services. High profile projects in the company’s first year have included many of the major sports highlights of the year, including the multi-sport events in Tokyo, working with leading outside broadcast companies like EMG and NEP. Original also provides kit and system design for reality and factual entertainment shows, and long-form drama.
With a current inventory valued at £5 million and a vision for continuing investment and rolling technology refreshes, it is the right time to appoint a strong managing director who can realise these goals.
