Production company Deep Fusion Films, has appointed factual exec Niki Page as its international partnerships agent.
Page’s remit is to build Deep Fusion’s international profile by forging alliances with platforms, broadcasters, brands and co-production partners, and exploring new production-finance models. She will report to Jamie Anderson and Benjamin Field, who launched Deep Fusion in October 2023 as a factual and scripted production company “operating at the interface of technology, creativity and human stories.”
Page has worked as a factual consultant for several high-profile media companies, including Red Arrow International and Spark Media. Prior to launching her consultancy in 2021, she spent six years as Sky Vision’s head of factual acquisitions. Her CV also includes senior acquisitions roles with Channel 4 International and Fremantle Media.
Deep Fusion’s co-founder Benjamin Field said: “Deep Fusion has innovation at its heart and a desire to change work culture for the better in its soul. We’re building a team that enjoys its work and is a joy to work with, whether creating ‘the next big thing’ in mainstream formats or harnessing the power of AI to reimagine entertainment. To take our ambitious launch slate to market, we need not only a person with experience, talent and connections, but also a person with the energy and vision to explore all possibilities. Niki is very definitely that person.”
Niki Page added: “Deep Fusion is pioneering the ethical use of AI to push back the frontiers of creativity, which represents a massive opportunity for any future-focused broadcaster, platform, brand or producer. My long experience in acquisitions and development means that working in a culture of collaborative relationships is second nature to me. In today’s uniquely challenging market, it’s never been more important to work with people you like, trust and respect — people with whom you can share a laugh as well as values. Providing that to our new international partners is our number priority.”
Anderson and Field’s first collaborative production was a feature-length biographical documentary about Anderson’s father — legendary Thunderbirds creator Gerry Anderson. In Gerry Anderson: A Life Uncharted (Britbox UK/Abacus Media Rights, Format Factory), deepfake technology was used to ‘ethically’ repurpose intimate audio archive footage and bring Anderson back to the screen to discuss his life and career.
Deep Fusion has a slate of soon-to-be-announced projects in the pipeline, including feature length documentaries, scripted series and sports content.
