VFX producer Juliet Tierney has signed on to lead Ntropic’s Los Angeles studio as its new executive producer. Tierney recently worked on the award-winning feature, I, Tonya. She brings years of experience working with top production companies and agencies, and has a rich history of producing visual effects for feature films, TV and commercials.
“Ntropic has deep roots in the VFX world,” says founder/ECD Nate Robinson, “and Los Angeles has always been a home base for what we do, from film and TV to commercials and music videos. We were looking for the right person to really connect with clients of all disciplines, but also with a level of critical thinking to be able to actualize an overall business strategy. Juliet’s charisma and strong leadership acumen were apparent right off the bat.”
“Coming from an agency and production background in the UK, and then moving into post production, I know that those parts can all work together in a strategic way,” adds Tierney. “That’s what really attracted me to Ntropic. While everyone’s talking about 360 production, VR/AR innovations, and working directly with brands as well as agencies, it felt like Ntropic had been at it awhile and were already leaders in those fields.”
Tierney joins Ntropic from Eight VFX, where as head of production, she provided leadership, strategy, workflow and process across a range of projects. In addition to her work for I, Tonya, Tierney produced the pilot and first episode of hit Fox sci-fi show The Orville. Previously, she spent four years as senior producer at MPC, mastering the VFX pipeline for 2D and 3D work.
Before MPC, Tierney was executive producer at Fallon London and senior producer at Mother London, where she worked directly with Coca-Cola, Motorola, and Stella Artois. She became known for celebrity-driven, cinematic advertising, which eventually led her to spend a year working hand-in-hand with Al Moseley, current president and CCO of 180LA, on The Prince’s Rainforest Project. The pioneering AR piece, produced by Framestore, was commissioned by Prince Charles and featured luminaries Robin Williams, Harrison Ford, Pele, and the Dalai Lama.
