“As The Story Department’s head of development and production, Pooley will work alongside managing director Katie Millington and executive producer Lib Kelly to develop documentaries for the local and international market place.

Eight’s expansion into documentary film production is a response to the global thirst for content and the rapid growth in documentary film and docu-series consumption.

Says Katie Millington, managing director, Eight: “Eight has a long history of documentary film making and it’s been a dream of ours to establish a dedicated department with it’s own driver. The Story Department also offers opportunities to collaborate with agencies and clients on projects that merge non-fiction stories and branded content. We are incredibly fortunate to have Leanne on board. Her energy and enthusiasm is infectious and she ignites our collective passion for storytelling.”
