The Yogscast Family
The Yogscast Family is made up of a diverse bunch of talented, funny individuals who work tirelessly to make this all happen on a day-to-day basis. Below are the names, portraits, social media links and biographies of the whole team.
Rich is the Yogscast’s General Manager, which means making sure there’s enough money to keep the lights on in YogTowers and Simon in Jaffa Cakes. Rich is a games industry veteran, having launched, published or edited more websites, magazines, events and companies than he cares to remember, including Edge, PC Gamer, Official PlayStation Magazine, Official Xbox Magazine, The Games Tribe and lots more.
Bodders joined the Yogscast in 2014 as Production and Development Manager, bringing with him a unique blend of stiff upper lip, derring-do and unwavering politeness. He spent his formative years in the tutelage of a Italian fencing master, before besting his nemesis in a duel, and going on to work for the likes of the Discovery Channel, History Channel, Endemol, and more recently Future Publishing where he launched several gaming video brands.
Si joined the Yogscast at the start of 2013 as the Website Administrator. He also uses his ancient powers of 'photoshop' to create website graphics, and thumbnails for countless channels. Founder of the art of 'Stealth Shotgun', he spends time formulating strategies and running simulations, designing and creating games, but also protecting his lands from rogue Pandas. He may also be the villain from a popular 80’s cartoon, however this cannot be confirmed.
Despite concerns that adding more Toms to the Yogscast would cause confusion; Tom Perkins, and more importantly his beard, have become an intrinsic part of the team. His chief concerns are dealing with the mountains of mail as well as all the most exciting jobs that the rest of the crew (especially chief Tom) dont have the skills for.
Ex-Detective Ben was hired by the Yogscast to investigate corruption within YogTowers. Ben discovered what he thought was embezzlement that went all the way to the top. It turned out just to be Simon getting into the Jaffa supplies again though. When not dressing up and trying to steal the Ark of the Covenant, Ben is involved in almost every facet of the company and how to improve it.
The shadowy figure, Tom Clark is the behind the scenes master mind of the Yogscast. Primarily responsible for planning live action videos he is also the Yogscast’s writer, working on Yoglabs and masterminding Yogsquest. Whenever you see something a little out of the ordinary on the Yogscast you can thank Tom and his ability to talk Lewis into doing rediculous things. After a long struggle he is now officially recognised as the real Tom of the Yogscast and heads 'The council of Toms'. ALL HAIL THE MASTER TOM!
Colin was poached by the Yogscast from Bristol’s underground beatbox-juggling scene to work as editor chief. With past experience working on Hollywood blockbusters there is no media challenge that Colin cannot overcome. With an unmatchable tactical genius Colin is the resident spirit guide for members of the Yogscast when strategy or cunning is required in the field of gaming.
World famous dancer Adam (originally known as Ben) was initially added to the Yogscast team to raise moral and team spirit. After winning the hearts and minds of the office he now specialises in bringing the feel of the big screen to a 1080p YouTube window. Often compared to the likes of Scorsese or Michael Bay we have no doubt that he will be the messiah in the next golden age of cinema.
Tom (aka Tom II) joined the team in 2013 as an editor. Upon the realisation that he was the second Tom on the Yogscast team, Tom II was forced to do battle with Tom I, the winner of which would be granted the title 'Tom of YogTowers', the loser would be stripped of all naming rights, only to be referred to as 'Old No Name'. The blood bath that ensued ended in an anticlimactic draw and it was decided that the name be split between both Toms.
All those amazing Yogscast sounds that you have pouring into your earholes… they come straight from Adrian’s brain. Hired from the M.O.D.’s special 'aural weapons division' he is now a master of making sure that your left and right ears both get the same volume. Oh he also does that stuff where he smashes oranges and scrunches crisp packets to make the sound of a baby deer being born or a car swerving in the rain.
The most recent addition to YogTowers, Alex is already making his mark. Originally working in both film and TV his expert knowledge is already shining through the videos he works on. Famous for the fastest fingers in DotA, Alex claims it is from playing piano for years rather than a story involving genetic mutations and escape from cold war Soviet labs. Only time will tell.
Sam joined the Yogscast in the early part of 2013 as an audio engineer training under Sparkles*. Now the student has become the master and has dedicated his life to deliver the voices of the Yogscast to your ear holes as pleasantly as possible.
Harry Marshall is a fresh-faced up-and-comer for the Yogscast. Once Sips discovered Harry’s amazing talent for making and producing high quality thumbnails and designs (on an incrementally short turnaround period) Lewis slapped some shackles on him and gave him his own private room in an undisclosed dungeo… I mean, location. Harry loves his job and loves making designs; that’s our statement and we’re sticking with it.
Nina-Serena is an artist who specialises in illustration, comics & 2D animation. Nina-Serena previously freelanced with the Yogscast, most notably on Sips & Sjin’s channels – but in 2013 went full-time producing new Yogscast content in an alternative cartoon style. Nina-Serena has been in the creative industry for a fair while now having previously worked with companies such as Namco Bandai, Channel 4 & Hattrick Productions. Oh and yes, Nina-Serena is one word. How pretentious.
A positive prodigy of his art, Ciaran produces many of your favourite Yogscast animations and song videos. When not slaving over a graphics tablet Ciaran can be found on the Rugby pitch crushing his enemies -- Seeing them driven before him, and hearing the lamentation of their women!. Also is cool guy.
