More about the Blue 2.0 Team…

Nicola Whitehead, Commercial Director

I began my Post Production career in 1995 as a Runner at blue (now back to blue 2.0). Having worked my way up in the Post Production world as a Bookings Manager, Post Producer and then finally Head of Production I bring a huge wealth of experience and technical know-how to each project. I have overseen award-winning projects such as ‘The Nuremburg Trials – Goerings Last Stand’ (‘Best Specialist Factual’ BAFTA TV Awards) and other high profile productions including, ‘The Beckoning Silence’(International Emmy Winner) , ‘Stephen Hawking’s Universe’ ‘ Great British Bake Off’ (BAFTA Winning) and the multi award winning ‘Live from Space – a lap of the Earth’ for Arrow Media.  From Mary Berry’s soggy bottom to Dermot O’Leary Live in Space (almost) I’ve looked after it all.  I worked through the transition of 4:3 – 16:9, Tape to Tapeless, SD to HD and now HD – 4k and counting.  So I’ve seen a lot of changes, not Black and White to Colour though! I look forward to meeting with you, the Media Parents.”
