Impossible Pictures Makes Three Key Appointments

Following the appointment of Managing Director Jonathan Drake in December, 'Impossible Pictures' has made three further key appointments to support its continuing growth.
Liesel Evans has been appointed as an Executive Producer in Factual, Sam Jukes-Adams has been made Head of Production across all the company’s output and Sheryl Trinh as been appointed Company Secretary.
Evans, an Advisory Committee member of the Sheffield Documentary Festival, joins Impossible Pictures from a wealth of experience as a producer/director.
Her career spans over 18 years of factual programming experience for high profile production companies and broadcasters. In 1995 she won an Emmy for her documentary Angel of Death Row about Sister Helen Prejean, the death row nun who inspired the Hollywood film Dead Man Walking, and she produced two of the 1998 BAFTA and RTS award-winning series 'The Human Body' presented by Robert Winston. As Executive Producer, she will work with Company Founders Jasper James and Tim Haines on landmark series 'Ways to Save the Planet', as well as bringing projects through development into production.
Jasper James said: "Liesel brings a wealth of experience to the company and is perfectly placed to act as Impossible’s exec on a series as bold as Ways to Save the Planet. She brings different but complementary skills to the Impossible team and I am sure will also make a significant contribution to the ongoing growth of our production slate.”
Jukes-Adams has been working with Impossible since its foundation in 2001, after working on 'Walking with Beasts' at the BBC. While at Impossible she was the Production Executive on Prehistoric Park and the Line Producer on 'Space Odyssey'.
Sheryl Trinh has been Company Manager at Impossible since 2004, a role which she continues whilst becoming Company Secretary.
Tim Haines added: “The appointment of our first Head of Production and Sheryl’s appointment as Company Secretary are indicative of our business expansion. These roles are integral to the success of Impossible moving forward – working to create a solid business foundation from which we can continue to make landmark programming.”
In just six years the Emmy and Bafta award-winning team at Impossible Pictures has grown to be a leading UK Indie.
The company has achieved cult status within the realms of CGI and high impact factual and drama and is on track to achieve turnover of over £17 million this year.
