A fresh approach to discovering talent in the digital age.
The Story So Far
Gritty Talent draws on the experience of two dynamic ex-BBC production gurus who know how to spot rising stars, and have the contacts and knowledge to connect up the best new talent with decision makers in the creative ecosystem.
After decades working with presenters, contributors and commissioners in network TV and on online platforms, our founder Mel Rodrigues decided to combine her knowledge of the creative industries with her passion for nurturing new and less heard voices. The result is Gritty Talent – a fresh approach to connecting up the best emerging talent with opportunities across all media platforms.
Head of Talent Clare Crossley is a powerhouse of the production world, having managed a huge range of television, live events and graphic design projects. Having worked on some of the BBC Natural History Unit’s best love nature films, as well as with some of the biggest names in the business, she’s Gritty Talent’s eyes and ears!
