CGI studio REALTIME has appointed Libby Behrens as its Operations Director.

The studio, which works in the games, broadcast and automotive space and has credits including Sky TV's A Discovery of Witches and BBC's The War of the Worlds, recently announced a 60% growth across its two UK studios in Manchester and Lancashire.

Behrens, who has more than a decade's experience in media production in London, LA and New Zealand, joins the team from sports app Zwift, where she managed the implementation of new production processes as Live Operations Producer. Previously, Behrens was Head of Operations at LA-based Electric Theatre Collective. Behren’s credits include Virgin Media’s animated Ussain Bolt TV Campaign and Massive Attack’s Voodoo in my Blood music video.

Behrens will oversee the introduction of new technology, IT, resourcing, and staff and skills development at REALTIME. Behrens said: "I dipped out of the VFX world to experience the realm of game production but when the opportunity presented itself to come and join REALTIME, I just couldn't resist. REALTIME has recently delved into more areas of the VFX arena, and I am really looking forward to working with the talented team on all things operations to support their massive growth."
