PETER NEILL

assistant producer

Pete began his media career with Afro-Mic back in 2016. Since then he has worked as a researcher/developer on projects such as Channel 4’s Big Toe Needs a Hand, as a production assistant on the drama film Cry Rosa (RTE), and as co-producer/director on the likes of Pure O (Real Stories), a documentary about mental health.
A keen editor, Pete has an eye for storytelling, which comes in useful when receiving weeks worth of documentary rushes.
When he’s not doing any of that though, you’ll likely find him falling asleep in the cinema.

ALLY MCKENZIE 

assistant producer

Ally began working in media in 2014 with Afro-Mic Productions as a DOP and editor working on projects such as For The Love of Mod Tokyo and Channel 4’s The Devil as AD. Establishing his own company in 2017, Ally has produced a feature documentary on Newry City AFC for Eirsport and has a feature documentary currently in development. He works largely within the world of boxing and has produced promos and mini-docs for ITV Box Office and ESPN. 

Ally is currently working on The Search with Afro-Mic, and in the rare moments that he is not filming, Ally enjoys following Newry City to the far corners of the country, usually to watch them lose.


STACEY DICKIE

Development Researcher

Stacey joined Afro-Mic Productions in the summer of 2018 after previously working on Taste of Home (BBC NI). She started her TV career as an intern at Stellify Media while still at university. Recent productions that she has worked on include: The Search (BBC NI) and My First Pride (BBC iPlayer) which will both air in 2019. Other television credits include: Beauty Queen and Single (BBC NI), Celebs In Solitary (Channel 5) and Parents Evening (BBCNI).  When she is not working on all things telly related you will find her behind her coffee machine brewing and pouring up the perfect espresso – (she just loves coffee and thought she’d share that with you)
