David

CEO

favourite biscuit: Chocolate chip cookie

Spanish-born David moved to the UK at a young age to study, get to know himself and make friends from all parts of the world. He wanted to explore a new way of life and culture, and also challenge himself to stand on his own two feet thousands of miles away from home – YOLO!

Before David started his entrepreneurial journey, he worked as a radio presenter and voice over talent… who would have though, uh?

In 2008, David set up GoLocalise – a translation, subtitling, voice over company with in-house recording studios all under one roof.

In 2016, David decided to tell his story and published an Amazon Best-Selling book "Child-Biting, Chorizo and Chancing Your Arm: How I made it big in Britain". It reflects the route that David took to become a successful business owner. It explains how the power of self-belief can bring great achievements when you have cojones in business, and what can happen when one is driven to unlock one’s own potential. Get your copy HERE.

In 2020, David acquired Nice Biscuits an awesome boutique Post-production house with the aim to better serve customers and offer a complete and tailor-made solution to their individual needs; from filming, producing and post-producing any content, to re-versioning this in over 100 languages and thus helping clients reach new markets and grow their brands globally.

Olivia

Production Assistant

Olivia Hards

Production Assistant

favourite biscuit: Custard Creams

Olivia - aka Liv - loves to travel around the world, drink lots of gin and shop till she drops! She was born and bred in East London and 3 years ago, she graduated from Ravensbourne University with a 2:1 BA in Television Production. She jumped headfirst straight into the advertising industry, starting at Saatchi and Saatchi London as a runner before moving to Nice Biscuits as a Production Assistant. She is absolutely loving being part of the NB family.

From the age of three, Liv trained as a ballet dancer. She took part in shows all across England, completed up to stage 3 in ballet, pointe, tap, and jazz exams and even performed in front of hundreds of people. But when she hit her teenage years, she decided it was no longer cool to miss out on parties or sleepovers if she had exams or rehearsals early the following morning. Nevertheless, she still loves to dance now and then - even if it is just around the house!

Liv loves pigs. Probably because she was born in the Year of the Pig and was brought up watching Winnie the Pooh and fell in love with Piglet. She also loves a nice cup of tea and her personal best is 10 cups in one day!! Woohoo!

Ben Gallagher

Flame Artist

favourite biscuit: Viennese whirl

view my work

An intense obsession with travelling has taken Ben from Everest Base Camp to the Fijian Sea. Drop him in the middle of New Delhi, armed with nothing but a local map and a flat phone, and he’ll be able to find the nearest thali. Along his travels, Ben discovered a passion for the sea. This newfound love of what lies beneath, led to him becoming a qualified scuba diver through PADI. Some of his favourite dive spots to date, are the Gili Islands and the Great Barrier Reef.

Along with travelling, music has played a big part in Ben’s life. Being introduced to his first guitar at a young age by his Grandfather, sparked an interest in the musical elegance of Jimi Hendrix. Whenever Ben struggles for creativity, just hand him a guitar and watch the music flow!

From a young age, Ben always knew he wanted to pursue a creative career path but had no idea what it would be! Having stumbled into a couple days of work experience in one of London’s leading Post-Production companies, Ben discovered the wondrously mystical arts of the VFX industry and from that moment on, he realised he had found his calling in life. After leaving College with a couple A levels in his back pocket in 2012, he pursued a career in the VFX industry and hasn’t looked back since.

Ollie

Colourist

Ollie Gill

Colourist

favourite biscuit: Fox’s Viennese

view my work

After graduating university with a Music Technology degree in 2013 Ollie moved down to London and began his career as a runner in a Post Production Facility. He was overwhelmed and fascinated by all of the unknown fields that go in to the post production. In late 2013 Ollie began his new role as an assistant which then led to his ambition of becoming a Colourist.

Two years later, following training under some of London’s best Colourists, Ollie joined Nice Biscuits as a Junior Colourist with the aim to grow that side of the business. Five years on and Ollie has really established himself as the sole Colourist at Nice Biscuits but admits the learning never stops!

Ollie is well driven, ambitious and versatile. He is known to go that extra step not just for himself but for his clients. The most important thing to Ollie, other than outputting the best grade he can, is making sure the clients are happy in his suite. His northern charm helps keep conversation flowing and a calm atmosphere which he believes is the best way to get the optimum out of any project. It’s this work ethic that has helped him get where he is within his seven year career.

Ollie used to go to Liverpool FC games with his father as a child however bizarrely chose to support Newcastle. He plays 5-aside football weekly and believes with Newcastles current form that 28 is not too old for him to get in to their squad.

Jasmine is a lover of London and has lived north of the river her whole life. She graduated from Ravensbourne University with a 2:1 in Editing and Post Production whilst working full time as a runner at Whitehouse Post. After a few years as an Edit Assistant she made the jump from editing to VFX when she joined the Nice Biscuits family in 2018 and has never looked back since.

She enjoys to swim and used to compete weekly, with ambitions to go pro when she was younger. As time went on and she got older, there was less swimming and more floating in a lilo with a cocktail. Pubs are where you're most likely to find her. She loves socialising and drinking with friends in her down time.

Her favourite things in the world… DOGS! She melts and her voice goes very high whenever she is in the presents of any puppy (so please bring your puppies in to say hi).
