Malone has responsibility for all elements of digital feature film production across One Post, St Anne's Post, Soho Images and Todd AO.
Malone joined Ascent in 1997 from Framestore CFC. He moved to St Anne's as head of production for its 2002 launch.
Recent Ascent digital film services group projects include Black Book, Mr Bean 2, Hot Fuzz and Stardust.
Paul Jones, MD of Ascent Media Creative Services said: 'We provide a unique end-to-end digital film workflow across our Companies offering the same Colourist across HD rushes, HD preview and 2K/4K DI. Then when you add sound editorial and mixing, CGI, title design, cutting rooms, subtitles and access services, DVD authoring, asset management, laboratory services and release printing which is all supervised by one project producer from Patrick's team, it's hard to beat.'
