Speaking of his time at Cult so far, Glasgall said: “The experiences I’ve had in the last year and a half have been some of the most rewarding and challenging of my career so far. It’s been incredible to work with such a creative and dynamic team in both London and New York.
“I look forward to leading Cult’s production offering and continuing to create smart, beautiful work for our clients while partnering with the best creative talent in Europe and the US.
“Cult is focusing on growth and expanding its production department in 2021, evolving its production capabilities and working to utilize new technologies in the AR/VR space for existing clients and beyond.
“Covid-19 has thrown both the creative and production world a huge curveball, but Cult has found a way to gracefully pivot and continue to deliver to clients without having to compromise on quality, craft or creativity.
“At the beginning of the pandemic, the agency shifted to remote productions, focusing on CGI and animation when in-person shoots were impossible.
