Danish-UK production company WAVEpictures has appointed Nadine Mellor, formerly at Sky Pictures, as head of creative affairs.

Mellor joins WAVE's European co-production and financing department, currently run by Luke G-Jones in the UK and Andrea Cecilia Sterll and Bo Christensen in Denmark. Also new to the company is finance director Erik Korsgaard, who will be working along side Sarah Stuart and visual effects supervisor Mike Parsons.

Mellor helped build up BSkyB's feature film division, which last week was axed, and latterly ran creative affairs. Reporting directly to WAVEpictures managing director Torsten Leschly, she will oversee the company's co-productions and develop in-house projects.

Leschly stressed that Mellor had agreed to join WAVE before BSkyB decided to close down Sky Pictures last week.
