VICE Canada Taps Former Blue Ant Exec Vanessa Case


VICE Media Canada has hired Vanessa Case, previously the executive VP of content at Blue Ant Media, as senior VP and head of studio.

In her new position—which is effective immediately—Case will oversee all VICE Studios productions in Canada, including development, production, financing, sales and licensing. She will also manage VICE’s production and post-production facilities in Toronto.
