At the 2022 September AGM Nigel Hamley stepped down as our then President. As Nigel’s Vice President, I am happy to take on the role of Acting President whilst we recruit Nigel’s replacement. My sincere thanks to our departing President, Nigel Hamley, the Hollywood based independent film executive, who successfully saw our organisation through the Covid pandemic and who has led the reopening and the reshaping of IMIS. Thank you, Nigel!
I have worked in the film and audio production industry for over 40 years, working for major producers as well as organising and enabling ‘live’ international concert streaming events. In working across all areas of production, post production, distribution of film and live streaming I see huge potential for IMIS/BKSTS in connecting members from diverse backgrounds across the industry. From students just starting into the industry through to seasoned professionals, IMIS/BKSTS is the perfect environment for networking and keeping up to date with the latest developments.
IMIS/BKSTS has demonstrated its ability to adapt to the changing needs of our industry and those who work in the many different professions. The process of adaptation continues in these difficult and challenging post-COVID years. The Board of IMIS, in association with the IMIS Advisory Council, are currently working on a broad range of initiatives. Broadening the opportunity for members to participate, actively through community groups around the World. This will give members, Worldwide, an organisation that will be relevant to their needs locally.
