Ambassadors strengthens production team
Ambassadors welcomes Annejes van Liempd as Executive Producer in Amsterdam and Tessa Ward as Producer in New York.
Most recently Executive Producer at PostPanic, van Liempd brings over 25 years of experience as a producer, photographer, and tutor for the Master Institute of Visual Culture. At Ambassadors she will work closely with Executive Creative Director Justin Blyth to head up the studio’s work with Booking.com on the creative development and dynamic scaling of their video performance marketing, utilising Ambassadors’ proprietary creative automation platform Cube.
Ward joins Executive ProducerKatya Meyer in New York to continue offering hybrid production solutions across animation, edit, color grade, VFX and creative technology for North America. She brings a unique perspective to the studio as half-Dutch, half-American with over 12 years of experience working as a film, animation, and illustration producer and agent in both markets.
“Annejes and Tessa won’t be entirely new faces for our clients, as we’ve been lucky to have them freelance with us in the past. But we’re really happy that they’re now officially ‘in the building’ as we continue to strengthen Ambassadors’ position as technology-powered craft partners both in Amsterdam and New York,” says Halbo van der Klaauw, Founding Partner, Ambassadors.
Ambassadors’ recent work includes Wear Your Denim Till the End For G-Star Raw with agency The Family Amsterdam and production company Halal, which used a blend of deepfake technology and VFX to show a man ageing together with his denim. The project was the first from Ambassadors’ in-house artificial intelligence unit, Revel.Ai.
