Ntropic LA Adds Feature Film Vet Juliet Tierney as Executive Producer
From the release:
Fresh off of her work on Oscar, Golden Globe, and BAFTA-winning feature film “I, Tonya” (Dir. Craig Gillespie), acclaimed VFX Producer Juliet Tierney has signed on to lead Ntropic’s Los Angeles studio as its Executive Producer. Beyond her rich history of producing cutting-edge VFX for feature films, TV, and commercials, Tierney brings years of experience working with some of the world’s best production companies and agencies.
“Ntropic has deep roots in the VFX world,” says Founder/ECD Nate Robinson, “and Los Angeles has always been a home base for what we do, from film and TV to commercials and music videos. We were looking for the right person to really connect with clients of all disciplines, but also with a level of critical thinking to be able to actualize an overall business strategy. Juliet’s charisma and strong leadership acumen were apparent right off the bat.”
Always insightful, Tierney found Ntropic to be well-equipped for a constantly evolving creative industry. “Coming from an agency and production background in the UK, and then moving into post-production, I know that those parts can all work together in a strategic way,” adds Tierney.
“That’s what really attracted me to Ntropic. While everyone’s talking about 360 production, VR/AR innovations, and working directly with brands as well as agencies, it felt like Ntropic had been at it awhile and were already leaders in those fields.”
Tierney joins Ntropic from Eight VFX, where as head of production, she provided leadership, strategy, workflow and process across a range of projects. In addition to her work for “I, Tonya,” Tierney produced the pilot and first episode of hit FOX sci-fi show “The Orville” (Dir. Seth MacFarlane).
Previously, she spent four years as senior producer at MPC, mastering the VFX pipeline for 2d and 3d work. Tierney produced lauded campaigns for NBA “Jingle Hoops,” Geico “Fast Forward” (which won gold at Cannes), and a Super Bowl spot for AAA. Another MPC Creative favorite, FIAT “Godzilla,” used actual footage from the feature film while also leveraging Tierney’s production experience on live action shoots, working alongside MPC’s in-house directorial talent.
Before MPC, Tierney was executive producer at Fallon London and senior producer at Mother London where she worked directly with Coca-Cola, Motorola, and Stella Artois. She became known for celebrity-driven, cinematic advertising which eventually led Tierney to spend a year working hand-in-hand with Al Moseley, current president and CCO of 180LA, on “The Prince’s Rainforest Project.” The pioneering AR piece, produced by Framestore, was commissioned by Prince Charles and featured luminaries Robin Williams, Harrison Ford, Pele, and the Dalai Lama.
“The reason why we’re still around is because we continually offer value to our clients,” explains Robinson. “We earn our seat at the table as a creative partner. Now that Juliet is here, she’ll be a big part of increasing that value and helping to round out our leadership team.”
