Blue Ant Bolsters North American Production Team


Blue Ant Media has made several senior executive appointments as the company looks to strengthen its production slate in the U.S. and Canada.

Effective immediately, Laura Michalchyshyn, based in New York, becomes an original programming consultant/producer; Julie Chang has been named VP of international co-productions; and Dan Lubetkin moves up to senior VP for U.S. production and development. In addition, Sam Sniderman, who serves as executive VP of global production at Blue Ant, will now work out of Los Angeles.

“With a significant and recognizable production business already established internationally, Blue Ant Media is turning its focus to Canada and the U.S., and these executive appointments are a springboard to our long-term content creation growth strategy in North America,” said Sniderman. “Working closely with Laura Michalchyshyn is also very exciting for us. Her network of talented writers, filmmakers and producers will help us get new North American projects off the ground, which is critical to our goals of creating and owning more content with global resonance.”
