Coffee & TV appoints Lydia Evitt as Head of Production

Coffee & TV have announced Lydia Evitt as their new Head of Production. Lydia will lead commercials production from the company’s new 8,000 sq. ft. studio in Farringdon, working alongside Executive VFX Producer Clare Cheetham and Executive VFX Supervisor Jonathan Cheetham who joined the company earlier this year to lead Coffee & TV’s growing Film & TV visual effects division.

Lydia, who previously held the role of Production Manager at Coffee & TV, has been appointed to the Head of Production role following maternity leave. She will spearhead managing the commercial division’s continued growth and evolution whilst protecting the company’s award-winning artist-led culture.

Of her appointment, Lydia said:

“It’s fantastic to be back and supported so wholeheartedly by Coffee & TV following maternityleave. Our new home in Farrington has kick started an exciting new phase for the company and gives us the opportunity to push our working culture even further forward, which benefits all of our productions. Added to that, as the industry and our client base further diversifies, so does the creative opportunity and our team, whose expertise now spans everything from CGI-heavy commercials to social content and more. I’m excited to work with the whole team and to be part of the Coffee & TV continuing growth story.”

MD, Leonie Moreton said of Lydia’s appointment:

“I’m incredibly proud to be promoting Lydia to Head of Production on her return from maternity leave. Becoming a mother is so often associated with having to take a step back from your career but we know that doesn’t have to be, and shouldn’t be the case. Motherhood brings new perspective, drive and empathy and all of these qualities are so important to us at Coffee & TV. Lydia has been such a valued member of the Coffee & TV team since she joined us and I’m extremely excited to see her thrive in her new role, which she has already embraced wholeheartedly.”
