Niamh started at Alleycats as a Researcher in 2012 before becoming a Producer in 2013. To date she has multiple network credits to her name such BBC4 Killing Me Softly: The Roberta Flack Story, More Four: Pop, Pride and Prejudice, and BBC3's Celtic Media Festival winner Keeping 'er Country. She Produces the bulk of our Irish based work including RTE's Stetsons and Stilettos and our award winning doc feature How To Defuse A Bomb. Niamh has recently taken a step into Directing and can sometimes be found attempting to 'Produce' belly laughs above a pub with her comedy sketch troupe.
Will takes care of the business affairs, day to day finances, and anything else in between in the London development office. An Alleycat since 2011 and recent graduate of the NFTS in Production Accounting, he has worked on all of Alleycats’ output to date, and in between tax credits and trips to Kyrgyzstan, is slowly learning French in his spare time.
HEAD OF PRODUCTION
Judy oversees the management of all Alleycats productions. With over 10 years advertising experience, and having worked on everything from feature films, to US entertainment series like The Batchelorette Judy came to Alleycats almost 5 years ago with a wealth of production knowledge. Having PM'd our epic ad funded campaign Helluva Tour, which took 4 strangers and crew half way around the world, and our Doc Feature How to Defuse a Bomb she now is highly skilled in international production and is known as the Carnet Queen of Alleycats.
Working with the Alleycats for over 5 years, Reuben is now one of our key editors. His credits include BBC1's World's Oldest Family (co-edit), Keepin' Er Country / Stetsons & Stilettos (BBC1 NI / RTE), Bullet Men (BBC1 NI). Most recently he has completed work on People's Painters(BBCNI), The Borrowers (RTE) and Real Life Superheroes (BBC Our Lives / BBCNI). When not in an edit he can be found in the dark corners of his garage trying to create the perfect beer. Unsuccessfully thus far.

Ciaran is the Alleycats Edit Assistant. Since joining in 2016 he has worked across most of our productions in some capacity, from Keepin' Er Country and Pop Pride and Prejudice to The Borrowers and Real Life Superheroes. He also heads up the Alleycats graphics department and is currently training to become the Alleycats next in house Editor. A “Jack of all trades” he can be found on the fairways of his local golf course at every opportunity he gets.

Duana joined Alleycats in Spring 2018 as a production trainee before rapidly progressing to Researcher. Since joining she has worked on everything from archaeology, art and history, to cosplay and credit unions. When she isn't working on the various projects at Alleycats, she's doing a bit of her own research to discover new films and TV programmes to obsess over.
POST PRODUCTION ASSISTANT
Gemma works in the post production side of things at Alleycats. After 3 years working with edits, IT and paperwork in Dublin she came home to join the cats. At times one of her most used phrases is “have you tried turning it off and on again?”
When she can’t be found staring at a screen she probably has her nose in some reading material, or at the nearest comic con…
Hayley joined Alleycats in summer 2019 through a Channel 4 training scheme to become a TV researcher. When she isn’t working with Alleycats Hayley enjoys shooting and editing her own GoPro videos.
Leana is happy to get stuck into various stages of the production process, from research in development to post-production paperwork, but her strengths lie in writing. Having spent a few years living in both Canada and Australia, she returned home in 2018 and became an Alleycat at the start of 2019, where she is being trained up in numerous areas.
One of the newest cats, Robbie recently upped sticks to come join us as our official post-production assistant. When not buried under a mound of paperwork Robbie tells us he enjoys "movies, art, theatre, that sort of thing"
