LANCASHIRE, UK — CGI studio Realtime (www.realtimeuk.com), which works in the games, broadcast and automotive space, has appointed Libby Behrens as operations director. The company has UK studios in both Manchester and Lancashire.
Behrens joins the team from sports app Zwift, where she managed the implementation of new production processes as live operations producer. Previously, she was head of operations at LA-based Electric Theatre Collective. She has more than a decade of experience in media production in London, Los Angeles and New Zealand.
In her new role, Behrens will oversee the introduction of new technology, IT, resourcing, and staff and skills development at Realtime.
“I dipped out of the VFX world to experience the realm of game production, but when the opportunity presented itself to come and join Realtime, I just couldn't resist,” she says. “Realtime has recently delved into more areas of the VFX arena, and I am really looking forward to working with the talented team on all things operations to support their massive growth.”
Behren’s credits include Virgin Media’s animated Ussain Bolt TV campaign and Massive Attack’s Voodoo in my Blood music video.
