Torquil Boyd- Managing Director – email@example.com
Torquil Boyd has worked in the television industry for more than 30 years – for the past 20 as Managing Director of TTV. He has written and directed five television series and won international recognition for his films on defence and veterans. He loves making films and brings the same creative energy to web-based or short corporate videos as he does to documentaries or TV series. The subjects he has filmed are diverse and eclectic – from billion dollar city dealings to the plight of homeless street dwellers. He prides himself on being able to grasp a subject quickly and define a brief succinctly. Torquil believes that everyone has a story to tell. “Our work, our victories and our struggles are what makes us human and fascinating”. Torquil is married with two daughters and is a fanatical cook and fly fisherman.
