“Jeannette’s appointment is another step forward in strengthening our senior leadership team across the business, and I look forward to seeing the impact she’ll have as we scale up to take advantage of the opportunities ahead,” DNEG global production and operations president Merzin Tavaria.

Manifold brings over 25 years of industry experience to this important new role, most recently as SVP and Method Studios head in Montreal and Vancouver, where she provided executive production management for all projects and led the creative teams to deliver work on shows such as Top Gun: Maverick, Witches, and Loki, among many other upcoming features and streaming series.
