“We pride ourselves in seeking and securing the best jobs and opportunities for talent, that are both signed and associates to the agency. We are intolerant of any form of prejudice that limits talent to realising their true value, capacity and skills across the full spectrum of genres in storytelling: film, television, commercial, promo and other forms of moving image productions” – Tariq Wahr, MD
Tariq Wahr – Senior Agent, MD
A graduate of Mechanical Engineering, Tariq has worked in various production roles with a variety of production companies for Film, TV drama, branded content and documentaries. In the late 90s he was approached to lead projects at the Information department of The Foreign & Commonwealth Office in Whitehall, where he was responsible for writing, producing and directing corporate-type documentaries and UK branding campaigns using web, digital, film and broadcast outputs. Feeling a desire to be more independent, Tariq branched out and established a production company, Zeppelin Media & Production, where he wrote, produced and directed both business communication films as well as urban community videos with his team of associates. He sold this business in 2004.
Tariq worked extensively as a business consultant and project manager to various university start-up business incubators and community sector organisations in London. He successfully wrote bids, fund-raised and delivered local government and EU targeted projects specialising on issues of regeneration, creative industry business development, job creation, and training.
His passion for storytelling saw him return to the film, tv and commercial production industry as a talent agent and producer, holding a share of an agency, before establishing Film Industry Talent and FIT Studios (Productions) in 2011.
