Keo Film Get 'Manners'

Keo Films have expanded their group appointing the Chair of Pact and Director of Manned Media as a non- executive director.
Debbie Manners, who is also co-director of Fizzbomb Creative Ignition, will join the group during a time of accelerated growth. Manners has been described by the group as the "ideal" person for the role with the right kind experience to help manage projects in the New Year.
For two years Manners was the Chief Operating Officer at Hat Trick Productions, responsible for all commercial and non-creative operations of the business. She was also an interim coo for BBC Studios and Post Production. While previous to this she was Group Commercial Director for RDF Media Group and Director of Rights at Flextech TV (now Virgin Media).
KEO is an integrated broadcast, commercial and online production company that is growing fast.
Over the last 15 years the company has produced nearly 250 hours of entertainment programmes, along with several DVDs, three websites and various mobile applications.
Recently the production company saw success when Hugh's Fish Fight was named Best Documentary Series at the Grierson British Documentary Awards in London.
Meanwhile KEO films saw off strong competition from The First Movie (Connectfilm & Screen Siren for More4) and Jig (Scotland Produtions & Arrow Films for BBC Scotland) to pick up its third Academy Award of the year when Terry Pratchett: Choosing to Die picked up the BAFTA in the Single Documentary category at the British Academy Scotland Awards 2011.
