Kristina Wood, Executive Producer
Kristina’s love for docu-reality hit home, when she produced two seasons of the critically-acclaimed Animal Planet series, Whale Wars. She began working with Brian Catalina on the second season of Swamp People in September, 2010. Since then, she’s worked side-by-side with Brian on Mudcats, Big Bad Wood, and two seasons of Ultimate Survival Alaska. She was promoted to Executive Producer at BCE in March, 2013.
Kristina’s career in documentary film and television began fresh out of college, over 15 years ago. Her first job was working as a researcher for the Academy Award-winning director Errol Morris on the feature film Mr. Death: The Rise and Fall of Fred A. Leuchter, Jr. She also associate produced the acclaimed Lionsgate documentary, The U.S. vs. John Lennon. And, yes, she did get to hang out with Yoko.
From film, she moved into the world of television, earning an Emmy nomination in 2006 for Victory in the Pacific, part of the PBS series American Experience. (One day, that little gold lady will be hers!)
Kristina has since produced shows for History, Discovery, Nat Geo, Animal Planet, ABC, A&E, E!, VH1, and PBS.
She is a proud graduate of Smith College (go women’s colleges!) and now resides in Culver City, CA.

Kelly Ficklin, Director of Post Production
Born in West Virginia, Kelly’s life eventually settled down in South Florida where she was accepted into a Performing Arts high school for Creative Writing. It was there that a mandatory class in TV production changed the course of her life forever.
After graduating from Florida State University’s Film School, she moved out to LA and got her first taste of the industry working as a night AE in a basement edit bay under a sex toy shop on Hollywood Blvd. Needless to say, she was hooked!
In a few short years, Kelly worked her way up from that basement to Lead AE, Post Coordinator and eventually Post Supervisor, where she has since honed her OCD tendencies. Over the past decade she has helped deliver shows for MTV, E!, TLC, NBC, TBS, VH1, CMT, History, Discovery and Nat Geo. She has been working with the BCE team ever since that fateful iChat interview back in 2011.
