AV3 was founded by Tom Harding in 1996.
For the last 23 years AV3 has grown significantly in many areas. Born in 1977, Tom Harding grew up in West Cornwall and from an early age had an avid interest in music and media. After taking photography at college, Tom left Cornwall to study a BSc (Hons) in Electronic Imaging and Media Communications at the University Of Bradford. Whilst studying, Tom's interest in visual design led him to work at various festivals in Europe and clubs in the UK producing live visuals to compliment the music. After leaving Bradford, Tom moved to London and whilst expanding AV3's client base, worked in live television, toured with bands and produced promos, music videos and animations for companies such as Bloomberg (London), Flevo Totaal (Netherlands) and MIC (South Africa). Toms latest work has seen him Vjing at Events, festivals and parties across Europe, working with an ever increasing list of bands and DJs, and producing documentaries for clients including The Eden Project, NESTA,The Arts Council and Surfers Against Sewage. Recently Tom has also been sharing his experiences by running specialist courses in VJing, documentary making, and video installations with AV3's educational workshops..
