Smoke & Mirrors are delighted to announce that Donna Head will join their team in Poland Street, Soho as an Executive Producer on July 2nd 2016. The move marks her departure from Amsterdam where she helped launch a new base for Finger Music.
Commenting on Donna’s arrival, Global Managing Director of Smoke & Mirrors, Gary Szabo says: “We feel Donna embodies the personality of Smoke & Mirrors. If we wanted to let people know what type of company we are, then we’re the type of company that hires Donna! We are so excited that she saw us as the right choice for her. We can’t wait for her to join us in Soho and help Smoke & Mirrors continue its upward trajectory in the world of content and VFX work for creative agencies and production companies.”
Donna started her career in TV production at AMV/BBDO and went on to head up Business Affairs at Euro RSCG, WCRS and Mother London, before moving into Audio Post Production in 2006. As managing Director of Scramble Soho for seven-and-a-half years Donna joins Smoke & Mirrors with a wealth of experience in Post Production, Audio Post and client liaison.
Discussing how she came to find her new position, Donna comments: “Smoke and Mirrors actually first contacted me when I left Scramble back in 2015. However I was given a great opportunity by Finger Music in Amsterdam and I was drawn to the Netherlands. When Gary heard I wanted to move back to London, he gave me a call and it all started from there! They are an incredibly talented bunch and I can’t wait to be a part of that.”
As a full-service post production company, Smoke & Mirrors offers everything from Shoot supervision, to grading, audio and print post.
Discussing the nature of the new role, Donna adds: “The great thing is, Smoke & Mirrors have sounds studios, so my knowledge there will be put to good use. I’m excited about bringing my experience of the industry to the role and hope I can make a bit of a difference amongst a really great bunch of people.”
