Shed Media has restructured its IT and post-production departments to create a strategic director of technology position, following the departure of head of post-production Adam Downey to Sky.

Matt Bazzaco, previously group head of IT, will take on the new role, which unites IT and post-production.

He also joins the Shed Media management group.

Shed Media chief operating officer Claire Hungate said: “It no longer makes sense to think about IT and post-production separately; they are part of the same environment.

“As file-based technology and cloud computing begin to dominate post-production, an IT professional such as Matt can add real depth of knowledge to inform the new workflows that will emerge.”

Meanwhile, in his new role as Sky Production Services’ head of post-production, Downey will be responsible for editing, audio dubbing and associated post services for news, sport, entertainment, corporate and indie production. He will report to director of production services Darren Long.
