Though Barbara Altounyan launched Flame TV with Roger Bolton 10 years ago, she still gets giddy when talking about new projects. The co-owner and director of programs for the UK-based prodco, which was bought by Avalon Group this August, spoke to realscreen about what she does when Flame TV gets new commissions, along with two other things that people in the industry might not know about her.

1. I got my first job at a local newspaper by dodging the receptionist and scrambling under the editor’s desk – the only way to get an interview!

2. I still suck my thumb.

3. When Flame wins a new commission I get so excited that I walk into solid objects -like lamp posts, trees and the occasional door.
