Jared Schiller

After studying History of Art at Goldsmiths in the early 2000s, and a brief stint working in the booming Reality TV industry, I began my career at Tate with Will Gompertz, now the BBC’s arts editor. Having worked on Tate’s production of the Turner Prize for Channel 4, I became part of the team that developed and launched TateShots, the pioneering video podcast.

In 2011 I formed my own company (the unimaginatively named Jared Schiller Ltd) in order to provide services to the wider museum and art gallery community.

My films has been screened at festivals in London and Toronto, and my work has been seen on television too - though it mostly lives online, or alongside exhibitions.

At the heart of my work is the belief that art is important in the everyday - a philosophy that is shared by everyone involved in my productions. We don't think art needs hyping up, nor that artists need installing on pedestals (or plinths). We aim to make unpretentious films that bring artists closer to the audience.
