Film London has appointed UK industry vet Julian Scott as its new animation and television consultant. Scott will be taking over the role for the screen industries agency following Bob Thompson’s departure.
The industry org works to sustain, promote and develop London as a global content production hub. As animation and television consultant, Scott will advise producers and investors and forge new creative partnerships in key global markets.
An expert in branded content, global IP development and international co-production, Scott has served as chair of the BAFTA Children’s Committee and as a part of PACT Children’s Committee. He has also worked with Disney, Sesame Workshop, Beano Studios, Winduna Enterprises, Coolabi and King Rollo Films.
Last year, Film London partnered with nonprofit Creative Access to co-fund 12 entry-level positions for London-based animation companies seeking new talent. The program was created to address the lack of diversity in London’s animation industry.
