BARCELONA, SPAIN — Twentyfour Seven (www.twentyfourseven.tv) has strengthened its production team with the appointment of two experienced producers: Robert López and Diana Hidalgo. They have more than 20 years of international experience, and as a team, ran Icecream Pictures in Spain for the Asian market. They will now both operate out of 247’s Barcelona office, also covering productions for Portugal and Poland.

“As we bounce back after the very unexpected challenges of COVID, we recognized the importance of growing our production team,” explains managing partner/EP Ivo Van Vollenhoven. “Uniting our two great companies will strengthen the top quality service we are offering to our clients in these demanding times. We’re thrilled to welcome the talents of Diana and Robert to our production family!”
“For the last five years at Icecream Pictures, our main focus has been the Asian market, but also working with a wide variety of clients from different countries, where we had the opportunity to develop all kinds of projects, from commercials and stills to fiction and tv shows,” notes Lopez. “This next step joining 247 gives us the chance to merge forces and create something bigger and better. At 247, I can contribute both my production knowledge and crew leadership, as I really believe that a production service company is only as good as their crew”.
Hidalgo adds, “247 was my home for a lot of great projects during my freelance life. Now, our paths have crossed again and I join them with a lot of energy, to make our filming as eco-efficient as possible and continue producing with a big smile. I'm ready!”
