London-based Twickenham Film Studios (TFS) has appointed Andrew Boswell as joint managing director. He will join property business expert Superna Sethi, also in the role of md.
Boswell previously worked at Twickenham as commercial director and then interim md between 2016 and 2020, overseeing all commercial activities during a period of sustained growth for the studios. Boswell joins from Lip Sync Post, where he has been commercial director.
Cara Sheppard, former ceo of Twickenham Film Studios, recently left to become president of Streamland Media’s picture division.
The studio got the green light for a £15 revamp in late 2021 including an extension of approximately 19,000 sq ft across the site.
Boswell’s new role will see him tasked with growing revenue across the company’s production, digital dailies, post-production and financing businesses. He will be implementing a new plan for growth and investment, with the backing of Twickenham’s shareholders.
Andrew Boswell said: “I am thrilled to be returning to the much-loved and world-renowned Twickenham Film Studios with its fantastic blend of historic stages and world-class post-production facilities, and to be re-teaming with Sunny Vohra and Roger Sewell on the new board. I am looking forward to working closely with colleagues old and new to enhance the Twickenham client experience whilst improving the commerciality of the business.”
Chairman of Twickenham Film Studios, Sunny Vohra, said: “We are delighted to welcome Andrew back to Twickenham, having enjoyed working successfully with him in the past. He brings back a wealth of knowledge and experience in the industry. Andrew will be working closely with other recent appointments Kim Honeyman, formerly of X2X Creative Services and Technicolor, as head of Production, Rachel Morrison as head of Facilities and Malcolm Ellison as head of Technology & Post. Furthermore, we also have Superna Sethi, a business partner, coming to Twickenham as joint md. Together we are aiming to take the studio back to the forefront of UK film and TV production.”
Paramount Pictures’ blockbuster Top Gun: Maverick, Amazon Prime’s series Ten Percent, and A Gaza Weekend, which was awarded at the recent Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), are amongst the recent titles that used TFS’s facilities and expert services.
