Daphne Mather

Head of Culture

Daphne Mather is Locksmith Animation’s Head of Culture. She is instrumental in setting and delivering the company’s ethos. She sits on the Sister Trust and Screenskills Council and is passionate about outreach, growth and training; maintaining that as there is no traditional route into the film industry we should embrace our differences, whilst we celebrate and grow our talent.

She has worked in TV and Film Production for over 25 years. Originally based in Bristol working on music and arts documentaries. Moving to London in 2006 and transferring to current affairs. She has nominations for two Focal Awards for her BBC work: The History of the World Cup and The Lost World of the Seventies with Michael Cockrell.

Daphne is the first Locksmith employee, brought in by Julie Lockhart in January 2014 for 10 weeks to find an office and help recruit a couple of people…. that took longer than expected.

Daphne lives in Richmond and North Devon with her husband, daughters, three dogs and a couple of lodgers. She loves walking, entertaining, movies and does a lot of thinking about cold water swimming and not much actual swimming.
