Bladonmore announces new senior hire, as Lucas Manley is named Executive Producer
Global communications consultancy Bladonmore has announced the hire of Lucas Manley, ex-The Edge Picture Company.
Manley has joined Bladonmore as Executive Producer. In the role, Manley, alongside Executive Producer/Director, Nick McAlpine, will oversee Bladonmore’s film department. The team consists of a wide range of complementary production expertise, ranging from film and animation to live-event production. Manley will help the in-house producers and editors to create moving image content for some of the largest organisations in the world.
Manley explained: “My primary objective is simple – to continue to strengthen the creativity of our video and film output. Ensuring each film tells our clients’ very best story. It all starts with a deep understanding and respect for the audience and making films that truly resonate with them.”
“Communication lives and dies on the quality of the films you make.”
Previously, Manley was at global production house, The Edge Picture Company, as a senior producer. He has spent 15 years of his 30-year career in film production, working with a vast array of clients in a multitude of industries, filming from as far afield as Siberia to the Western Sahara.
Richard Carpenter, CEO of Bladonmore, said of the hire: “Telling our clients’ story in an authentic and relatable fashion is key to our offering. It is our responsibility to make sure these messages are delivered with an unparalleled creativity; provoking audiences to sit up and take notice. Lucas will play a pivotal role in continuing to build our award-winning film team and content, that will elevate communications even further for our clients.”
Manley will work across Bladonmore’s full roster of clients, who already purchase a significant amount of film content from the agency.
Bladonmore works with premium, large-cap clients across the globe, with offices in London, New York, Los Angeles and Dubai. The communications consultancy builds strategies and materials that help brands to deliver their messaging with confidence.
