UK-based effects house Mill Film has named Emma Norton as head of production.

Norton, who takes up the position with immediate effect, worked her way up at the Mill from a production assistant to shoot coordinator and then on to a producing role. She reports directly to Mill Film's managing director, Antony Hunt.

"We are delighted that Emma has accepted this role," Hunt said. "Her immediate task will be to oversee Mill Film's role in the completion of Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets, and to manage recruitment and the initial stages of Mill Film's next feature film projects, Tomb Raider II and Bond: Die Another Day."
