Rob Hallam

Managing Director

Read bio Read bio

Rob is Managing Director of Bigtank and has been involved in the media industry for more than 20 years. After cutting his teeth in the Newsrooms of ITV, he worked up the production ladder before setting up Bigtank in 2005. Bigtank now has an established client base including brands such as Mercedes Benz Trucks, GA Foods, Polyflor and Frank Recruitment Group. Bigtank’s work is a combination of matching superb filmed and animated content with powerful stories that create engagement, impact and growth.

Rob would say he has the best job in the world at Bigtank – lots of travel (Bigtank has filmed all over Europe, the US, Canada, Japan, Russia and Mongolia) but also a strong customer base in his home county of Lancashire. ‘Best of all we get to work with fantastic individuals and companies in telling their stories and importantly, making sure those stories are heard and their businesses grow.’

Bigtank has a fabulous team at our core but the service doesn’t stop there!

For projects that require additional crew such as set-designers, illustrators and 3D animators we are privileged to have long-standing relationships with some of the UK’s best.

Get in touch

They not only deliver fantastic results, they have become some of Bigtank’s closest friends and colleagues.

Although all of our corporate video production and promotional film projects have a common goal – producing compelling and exciting content that viewers will want to watch, learn from and share, the methods of production vary depending on what skills and equipment we need to enlist to deliver the right results for our clients.

Some projects simply require a single camera operator with a 4K camera and sound kit whilst others require lots of specialist equipment like electronic camera stabilisers, drones and specific lighting rigs.
