3 Mills Studios creates new role
London-based 3 Mills Studios has appointed Tom Avison as client & sales manager. Avison's role is a new one designed to improve the studios' bookings service and client offering.
Avison has a lot of experience working across the film and TV industry, having worked on the production side as a location scout and unit manager (Britz, Primeval, RocknRolla), in exhibition for Everyman Cinemas & Picturehouse Cinemas as well as for Film London and the BFI.
He originally joined 3 Mills in 2011 as marketing manager and recently started in his new position.
Speaking to The Knowledge, Derek Watts, studio executive at 3 Mills Studios, said: "The appointment of the new role signifies a renewed client focus on customer service and new business development. The position is an amalgamation of the former bookings manager role, which has been vacant since late 2012, and a committed proactive sales focus.
"By appointing Tom to this new position we can utilise both his expertise across the industry and his dedicated knowledge of 3 Mills Studios to better service our existing clients and generate new business flows."
3 Mills Studios' recent projects include Danny Boyle's Trance and Channel 4's The Midnight Beast, and currently houses the shoot for Mathew Cullen's London Fields starring Billy Bob Thornton.
