Blink appoints Ed Sayers as producer

Ed Sayers, the former managing director of the now defunct production company Godman, has joined Blink Productions as an executive producer.

His move comes as Blink looks to expand its roster of directors by as many as five. He will also work as a hands-on producer, both on commercials and at its music video and animation arms, Colonel Blimp and Blinkink.

The Blink managing director, James Studholme, said: "Ed's call came at a moment when I felt we needed more executive firepower to keep on developing and he completely fits the bill. We want to build and refresh the advertising core of the company."

Sayer said: "I've always had my eye on Blink. I like its sense of personality, which I believe stems from James' passion and sense of caring. On deciding to close Godman, James was the first person I wanted to call."

Godman ceased trading in March after a decade of commercials production.

Sayers cited pressure on margins and prices as reasons for the company's closure.

Blink has a roster that includes the directors Dougal Wilson and John Birkin and the directorial teams Lynn Fox and Pleix. Wilson has just directed the "ride" film for Orange through Fallon.
