Argonon-owned indie Windfall Films has appointed ITN Productions exec Allison Todd, replacing Kristina Obradovic following her decision to leave the prodco after 16 years.
Todd (pictured), who joins the Mutiny producer on March 20, most recently spent seven months at ITN Productions where she served as head of production. Prior to that, she served as head and director of production at Maverick, where, over a six-year period, she worked across such award-winning projects as How to Look Good Naked, Embarrassing Bodiesand Operation Ouch!.
She has also held roles at Cineflix as head of production and at IWC Media as acting deputy head of production/production executive.
Obradovic announced she would be leaving Windfall in September 2016 to spend time with her family before considering her next role.
“My time at Windfall has been an absolute pleasure and I’ve really enjoyed helping to build the company into a thriving business, but I’ve come to the very difficult decision that it’s time to move on,” said Obradovic on her decision to leave Windfall Films in a statement. “Windfall has been such an important and fulfilling part of my life. I’ve loved working with the fantastic team here and I’m very proud of what we’ve achieved.”
“Kristina played a pivotal role in making Windfall what it is today. As well as being a caring manager, her legendary negotiating skills and persuasive powers have to be seen to be believed,” added Windfall Films CEO David Dugan. “Kristina has been — and will always be — an incredibly loyal Windfaller and friend. We wish her well and hope she brings her amazing energy and commitment to a new challenge.”
“Todd joins us at an exciting time when we are launching Mutiny, an ambitious genre-busting new series on Channel 4,” Dugan continued. “As our international business in Canada, France and the U.S. grows — her extensive experience in international co-production will be invaluable.”
Todd’s appointment, meanwhile, comes as Windfall opens its Scottish division, Windfall Scotland, with Inside Einstein’s Mind director Jamie Lochead overseeing the Edinburgh-based office as creative director.
Additionally, Dan Kendall has been hired as an executive producer, tasked with overseeing a range of broadcast and new technology projects across archaeology and cosmology.
Kendall has previously worked across such series and live events as Surgery Live, Channel 4′s Drugs Live: Cannabis on Trial and History’s docudrama Mankind: The Story of All of Us.
