Hollywood, CA (April 27, 2004)–Griffin Guess has been named to the newly created post of director of commercials and music videos at Encore Hollywood. In his new role, Guess will head sales for Encore’s recently formed short-form post-production team. Twenty-three-year-old Guess previously held the title of sales executive.
“Griffin has done a great job in helping to reestablish Encore Hollywood as a leader in short form post,” said Bill Romeo, Ascent Media Creative Services senior vice president of sales and marketing. “He has a firm understanding of the dynamics of that market and has found creative ways to help commercial and music video clients take better advantage of the breadth of services that we offer.”
Formed last fall, Encore Hollywood’s short form post production group has been making great strides in its effort to return comprehensive, high quality post-production services to the Hollywood market. The group has recently completed post work on commercials for Pacific Life, Twix, Kellogg’s, Jack-in-the-Box and McDonald’s. Its recent music video credits include such artists as Cypress Hill, 311, Twista, D12, Jay-Z and A Perfect Circle.
“We’ve assembled a great team of artists who have put Hollywood back on the map for short form post,” said Guess. “We are steadily expanding, we’ve been doubling our workload every quarter, and we are attracting fantastic work. The response we’ve received from our clients has been overwhelming.
“In addition to all of the digital post work that we do here, we can tie in laboratory services (Ascent Media Laboratory) and audio post services (POP Sound) through our affiliates,” Guess said. “We can offer our clients packages that are efficient and economical.”
