CEO, 360 Degrees Media
Alistair Maclean-Clark has spent his career in the creative industries. He is currently chief executive of 360 Degrees Media, the media and education firm behind High Melton Studios. In many ways his career has been leading up to High Melton. He began his working life as a camera assistant on major motion pictures like the Pink Panther movies, Superman II and Octopussy before working for the advertising giants Allen Brady & Marsh and Ogilvy and Mather. Advertising led to independently produced television and radio commercials for clients including Guinness, Ford, British Airways and Nestle, after which Alistair joined Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Really Useful Group to co-produce a film with the Walt Disney Company.
He joined Disney as Managing Director of Buena Vista Productions and Director of Progamming Production and Programming for seven years, where he oversaw the production of all European shows and managed production teams across Europe. During this period he managed the launch and development of GMTV, in which Disney held a 25% stake, and oversaw the launch of EuroDisney. Following his tenure at Disney, Alistair moved to LA to set up his own production business, Harvest Pictures. He sourced the investment for the first private finance deal with BBC Films and, more recently, has been working with 360 business partner, Mark Beilby, to identify media and education foreign direct investment opportunities for Chinese corporations in the UK. He has produced many television programmes and feature films and is currently executive producing The Rhythm Section with the producer of the James Bond Films Barbara Broccoli, which stars Blake Lively and Jude Law and has a budget of $50m.
