Mimbre and Beyond: Hollywood fame for our collaborators!

We’ve had the privilege of collaborating with so many extraordinary individuals whose talent, passion, and dedication always result in dynamic and exciting projects!

This women’s history month we are super pleased to give a special shout-out to these three remarkable women – Shona Heath, Maiya Leeke, and Alison Halstead – who have not only graced our collaborative endeavours but have achieved worldwide recognition through not one, but three different Hollywood blockbusters! Maiya Leeke as a dancer in Barbie, Alison Halstead as an actor in Dune 2 and Shona Heath winning both a BAFTA and an Oscar for her production design for Poor Things.
