Entertainment indie back2back has made a triple hire of full-time production talent.
Anna Boronat has been appointed as head of production, with Claire Hamilton taking up the post of senior production executive, and Mitzi David moving into the role of junior production executive.
Anna Boronat has over 20 years-experience at indies including RDF, Shine, Firecracker and Fever Media. Her credits include BBC One’s Masterchef, TLC’s Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding, ITV’s 71 Degrees North and BBC Two’s Repair Shop. Boronat recently served as Production Manager on back2back’s Duran Duran: There’s Something You Should Know, one of the two 60-minute specials that formed the backbone of a night of Duran Duran programming on BBC Four.
Claire Hamilton has held line producer and production manager roles at a range of production companies, including Fresh One and Keo Films, as well as working as a Locations Manager specialising in managing productions in some of the world’s toughest environments. Having joined back2back in 2016 as a Production Manager on Cars That Rock with Brian Johnson S3, Hamilton has since managed five back2back series at Production Executive level: Body Cam Cops, Nicholas & Alexandra, The World’s Deadliest Weather (series three), Mega Air and The World’s Deadliest…
Mitzi David has similarly worked as a freelance production manager on several back2back shows since 2016, including Mega Shippers for Discovery, Scrap Kings for Quest and Viasat, and Help! My House is Haunted for UKTV.
David Notman-Watt, back2back founder and Managing Director, said: “Last year was back2back’s most successful to date. We posted a turnover of £3.9m and this figure looks set to be beaten in 2018/19. Our dramatic growth is down to an exceptionally talented and hard-working team — a team that has now been strengthened by three highly experienced production team members. Anna, Claire and Mitzi will help us to harness the momentum of the last two years as we work to build the brands and returning series that are the DNA of our business.”
Recent back2back projects include Stunt Science (10 x 60 mins) for Spike UK, which has been picked up by Netflix internationally in a deal brokered by Hat Trick International; and Crazy on a Plane (6 x 60 mins), which was produced in association with TCB Media Rights and is set to debut on Sky Pick on November 30.
