Animation veteran John Evershed joins Trioscope Studios as chief strategy officer

Trioscope Studios, the US hybrid animation specialist behind series including Netflix’s The Liberator, has hired veteran animation exec John Evershed as chief strategy officer and Taylor Church as VP of production.

John Evershed

Evershed is responsible for devising and implementing Trioscope’s corporate strategy, including project and slate financing, international coproductions and business development.

He is the former CEO of Mondo Media, where he produced originals for networks including Adult Swim, MTV, Syfy and IFC. The 30-year animation veteran is also an advisor to several companies, including Chonky, Mellow Manor and ZikVid.

LC Crowley, CEO of Trioscope, said: “John has been at the forefront of the burgeoning adult animation market. His ability to innovate and entrepreneurial expertise are key to our company’s expansion.

“He’s already planted a massive footprint in the industry and we’re enthusiastic about the direction he’ll take our brand and business.”

Taylor Church

Church, meanwhile, supervises all aspects of production for Trioscope, from pre-production to post. Prior to joining the company, she was a collaborator on Trioscope’s hybrid live-action and animation series The Liberator and before that was a producer at Atlanta-based prodco School of Humans.

Trioscope president Brandon Barr said: “Taylor is an essential asset to the team; she’s had a seat at the table from the jump through her integral work on our first series The Liberator.”

The job announcements come one month after Trioscope revealed it had raised US$5.25m in investment from companies including Sony and venture capital firm Bitkraft. The company also recently finished production on the short film Night of the Cooters, produced by George RR Martin.

Trioscope has also been looking to grow its business outside the US over the past 18 months, partnering with Polish VFX studio Juice last year to launch joint venture Trioscope Europe.
