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, working on their in-house production of the Turner Prize for Channel 4. Later I became part of the team that developed and launched TateShots, the pioneering video podcast.

In 2011 Jared Schiller Ltd was formed in order to produce films for the international museum and art gallery community. I’ve also worked closely with artists to help them realise their own film projects.

My films have been screened at festivals in London and Toronto, and my work has been seen on television too - though it mostly lives online or in the world’s great art venues.

At the heart of my work is the belief that art and creativity 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 and creators closer to the audience.
