Formed IPC with Mykola in 1992 after spells as Director of Facilities and General Manager at top London post houses. Previously ran a music video production company after a total of 12 years at CBS Records and WEA Records.Originally trained as a journalist. Claims his career high so far was showing Mykola how to use a mobile phone.
Director of Editing
A one man master class in the art of cutting comedy. Despite the rarity value of his name (it’s actually Ukrainian), the fact that a Google search throws up some 5000 results says it all. He’s cut ground breakers like Little Britain, Drop The Dead Donkey and Blackadder, award winners like Men Behaving Badly, Father Ted and Harry Enfield and improv icons like Mock The Week and Whose Line Is It Anyway.
When not cutting the cream of comedy, he can be found at home in deepest Berkshire teaching his sons how to mix concrete, offer first fixings to plasterboard and install underfloor heating.
Director of Operations
Joined IPC at the end of 2000 from the bookings department at Dubbs. Anthony combines strong technical knowledge with an in depth understanding of television post production scheduling. Aside from keeping abreast of the latest industry developments, Ant enjoys trudging the woods of rural Essex, labradors in tow, paddle boarding the English waterways and watching highlights of Arsenal’s 2003-2004 season on YouTube whilst trying not to cry.
Natasha Carpenter Ballard
Director of Development
Arrived at IPC in 2007 via the Todd AO bookings department. Tash’s dedication to both clients and editors has seen her take on growing responsibility over the years, culminating in the Director of Development role. She took her role of nurturing the next generation of editing talent to the next level when she had twins in August 2015. When not juggling toddlers, she can usually be found in a tattoo parlour adding to her collection. Tattoos that is, not children.
Rebecca “Bekki” Finnigan
Head of Talent & Editor Development
Bekki joined IPC in July 2012 via Finger Lickin’ Records and has proved to be a real asset to the department ever since, gifting us with her excellent communication skills, positive approach and stunning vocals. Her growth in the company seems to be mirrored by her ever expanding collection of vintage clothing, vinyl and nicknames – she responds to “Bekki” and “Fig” amongst others but we haven’t had the courage to try “Rebecca” yet. She’s also from Essex you see.
In the year Louise started working in post-production the Boeing 747 took its maiden flight, the £1 note ceased to be legal tender and Wimbledon FC won the FA Cup. Not that we are trying to imply anything except her length of service, knowledge and experience of the industry. Of which she has a huge amount.
Lou joined us in early 2017 from the Objective Media Group where she ran their in-house post department. Before that she put in several years at Soho Images then Nats. Phew. Nowadays she brings her considerable experience to help us develop the company. When we find out what she does at weekends, we’ll let you know.
Joined IPC from BBC Studios & Post Production in March 2016, where she held posts as a runner and delivery team assistant respectively. A natural rapport builder, she provides vital support to the bookings team and our editors. When faced with a challenge she can always be relied upon to bring her can do attitude, urban swagger and a bag of Haribo to the table.
A recent addition to the team here, Freddi was bitten by the post production bug straight out of university but worked providing administrative support within the NHS before leaving to chase the dream working on a feature film. Don’t be fooled by her methodical approach and empathetic manner; in her spare time she can be found shoulder barging her fellow South Londoners in full warpaint. She has assured us it’s not a new approach to commuting on Southern rail and that she used to play American football, but we don’t know if she’s telling the whole truth.
Unlucky for some but not for us, Tina has been with the company for thirteen years and counting. Having previously held a multitude of accounting positions in both small and huge companies, Tina rules the numbers side IPC with an iron fist in a steel glove. But she’s not without her softer side – if you want the finest display of table top dancing this side of Slough, just add Sancerre. When not wielding her wine glass like a battleaxe, Tina also enjoys baking, spoiling her family rotten and chilling out to the relaxing sounds of Black Sabbath, AC/DC and David Essex.
