The Red Herring production company has enlisted the help of one of the

industry’s most experienced producers in a bid to raise its profile and

entice new directing talent through its doors.



The founders of the company, Sue Worthy and Brendon Norman-Ross, are to

be joined from this week by Pauline Crane, who joined RSA Films in 1987.

Crane has produced on a freelance and permanent basis for a number of

RSA stars, including Ridley Scott, David Bailey and Marek Kanievska.



Crane, who will be managing director, will scout for new directors to

work alongside Red Herring’s roster, while the company is to be renamed

Vertigo.



Crane commented: ‘Red Herring was director-led and has used freelance

producers to date. The ideal line-up for Vertigo will be four or five

directors. Brendon and Sue want like-minded teams who want to get

involved.’



Worthy added: ‘We’ve had a number of approaches from other companies,

but none of the offers were better creatively than what we had.’



Worthy and Norman-Ross founded Red Herring in 1993, having met in the

BBC presentation design department.
