30 Years of The Mill | Head of Production Operations, Liz Browne

To celebrate ‘30 Years Of The Mill’ we are turning our focus to the extraordinary people behind our creativity. We asked a snapshot of 30 Makers from across The Mill to share their most inspiring projects from the past, alongside their future-facing insights on the advertising industry and evolution of creative technology. Next up we have Head of Production Operations, Liz Browne who discusses how PlayStation's 'Mountain' led the way for large-scale crowd work and what she believes will be the most defining change of the next ten years.

What piece of Mill work do you see as the most pioneering & why?

It would have to be PlayStation ‘Mountain’ – the first-ever use of Massive crowd software and just a fantastic all-round project that went extremely smoothly. The spot featured such well observed, unique shots from the best commercial director ever, Frank Budgen, a beautiful grade from Adam Scott and incredible VFX work from supervisor and Lead Artist Barnes. It was an extremely satisfying project to work on and was recognised with a D&AD pencil for Visual Effects.

What do you feel is going to be the most defining change in the next 10 years?

I think the biggest change will be the use of Creative Technology for brands, it feels like we are still only at the cusp of what is capable.
