Aardman Animation’s longtime head of broadcast Miles Bullough has left the company to pursue new ventures. According to C21media.net, the departure was entirely amicable and Aardman has already begun the search to find a replacement. Bullough will continue to consult for the firm on a non-exclusive basis.
Bullough joined the Bristol-based animation studio in 2003. His numerous credits as exec producer include the Wallace & Gromit in a Matter of Loaf and Death, Wallace and Gromit’s World of Invention, Creature Comfort (the U.S. and U.K. series), Shaun the Sheep and Timmy Time for which he oversaw development, financing and production.
“After nine years at Aardman I have decided it’s time for a new challenge and so today is the first day of the next chapter in my professional career,” Bullough told C21. “It was a hard decision to make [because] Aardman is an amazing company, which has given me extraordinary opportunities to work on world-class projects, meet exceptionally talented people and get involved with huge campaigns. But I’m not getting any younger and I still have the energy, time and the hunger for another professional adventure.”
