Welsh indie IE IE bolsters team

Welsh indie IE IE Productions has strengthened its team by hiring two producers and adding a freelance production role.

The Cardiff-based firm has expanded its all-female team with the arrival of Stella Nwimo, an experienced producer with an extensive film and TV background, and development executive Jessica Cobham-Dineen.

Both are based in London and have joined the production team working under head of drama Alice Lusher.

In addition, new drama development roles will be split between two freelancers who will work on new projects and develop ideas, so the company has a continuous pipeline of projects to work on.

They will focus on female writers, directors and protagonists – with an eye on supporting emerging talent.

The appointments will work alongside the existing team of four to develop the company’s current slate of factual and drama productions.

Last year the company’s Richard & Jaco: Life with Autism won awards for Best Documentary and Best Factual Director at Bafta Cymru.

Founder and MD Catryn Ramasut said: “We are delighted to be able to strengthen the IE IE bench with the addition of the talented Stella and Jessica. They not only share our company’s values, but their experience speaks for itself and they bring a wealth of knowledge and an expanded network with them.”

She added that despite a move into the nations and regions by the major broadcasters, the TV and film world is still very much centred on London.

“We are a truly indigenous production company and we have our feet firmly rooted in Wales. It makes sense for us to be here, but it also makes business sense to have a presence in London,” said Ramasut.
