Lighthouse Studios has promoted Gilly Fogg to the title of head creative. She will manage the young Irish studio’s creative teams and oversee its content, both original IP and service work.
Fogg joined Lighthouse when it launched in 2017, serving initially as studio series director before becoming a showrunner in February this year. She directed its first series to have aired, Amazon Prime’s Bug Diaries, and oversaw the tests that won the studio its service projects like Netflix’s The Cuphead Show.
Starting out as a puppeteer, Fogg then became a stop-motion animator, eventually working up to episodic director on British mega-hit Bob the Builder. She moved to series directing at DHX Media, where her credits include Wishenpoof, Space Ranger Roger, and Animal Mechanicals.
