Independent, London-based visual effects studio BlueBolt has added Tracy McCreary, Henry Badgett, and Nic Birmingham to its Board of Directors. The new board members join studio co-founders Lucy Ainsworth-Taylor and Angela Barson, who will be stepping back from day-to-day operations while remaining involved as directors and shareholders.
Managing director McCreary will lead the new board members alongside the studio’s creative leaders, VFX supervisor Henry Badgett (Ridley Scott’s Napoleon, The Great), and head of 3D Nic Birmingham (The Last Kingdom, Ridley Scott’s Napoleon).
McCreary added, “Nic, Henry, and I are thrilled to join the BlueBolt board. We look forward to building upon Lucy and Angela’s amazing legacy of creating award-winning visual effects and nurturing an exceptional, close-knit team. Bluebolt has doubled in size since 2020, and we have a full slate of film and episodic projects lined up, so we couldn’t be more excited about the future of the studio.”
Debbie Diamond Sarto is news editor at Animation World Network.
“This is an incredibly exciting time for BlueBolt,” said Ainsworth-Taylor. “We are delighted to welcome Tracy, Henry, and Nic to the board. They are each long-standing, highly respected members of our team who bring outstanding leadership and real energy to the table. They will do a brilliant job leading the company forward.”
