 It's the work, stupid.

PAPAYA FIND A TIGER IN A JAR.
31 July 2018

Rare is the beet cake recipe film that nabs a coveted Vimeo Staff Pick, but, in 2011, directing duo Tiger in a Jar achieved just that. Comprised of husband and wife Matt and Julie Walker, Tiger in a Jar specialise in artful food and tabletop work - making them an apt addition to Papaya Films.

Papaya's latest import hail from Salt Late City, Utah, where the Walkers bonded over an appreciation of "everyday life and the joy found in simple but meaningful activities". Needless to say, cooking was one of those pastimes.



Countless appetisers, mains, and desserts later, Tiger in a Jar caught the eye of Papaya Executive Producer Wojtek Skiba: "With their experience and visual artistry, Tiger in a Jar are an exciting addition to our roster. Their passion for food is so evident across their work and we look forward to showcasing them in the UK."


It was important to us to find the right fit in the UK and Papaya is just that for us.

 ”

As well as their foodie credentials, Skiba thinks Tiger in a Jar have the filmmaking nous to thrive on these shores: "Their highly cinematic visuals and carefully crafted art direction provides engaging, mouth-watering food films that we can't wait to share with our UK clients".


Tiger in a Jar are equally keen to get started: "We are excited to be joining the Papaya London roster and look forward to new opportunities that our collaboration will bring. It was important to us to find the right fit in the UK and Papaya is just that for us."

Tiger in a Jar's showreel is now available here. For more information, speak to Papaya's Wojtek Skiba on 07447 754 410 or email him via wojtek.skiba@papaya-films.co.
