Bart Yates

Born and bred in Brisbane, Australia, Bart started out in the music industry working for Warner Music while managing a metal band on the side.

He moved to London in 1999 and secured his first role in advertising as a runner, quickly moving up to production assistant, then agency producer, joining Blink Productions and founding Blinkink – their dedicated animation division – in 2005.

Bart will present an in-depth look at some recent high-profile, award-winning advertising projects for the BBC (World Cup 2018 “The Tapestry” and Christmas 2017 “The Supporting Act”) and Channel 4 (Great British Bake Off) with extensive behind-the-scenes material and insights on the creative and production process involved.
