New York, NY (January 21, 2015)—East Coast film and television post house Technicolor-PostWorks New York has acquired The Room, the finishing studio that has been hosted on its premises for the past three years.
Under the terms of the agreement, The Room’s staff, equipment and dedicated 4K workflow will be integrated into the Technicolor-PostWorks facility at 110 Leroy Street. Additionally, Ben Murray, founder of The Room, will assume a new role as vice president, creative services for Technicolor-PostWorks.
Technicolor-PostWorks COO Rob DeMartin says the objective of the move is to leverage the creative talent, workflow and technology that have made The Room the finishing facility of choice for a growing number of independent filmmakers and other content creators. Under Murray’s leadership, The Room has reportedly honed a client-centric approach to feature film post-production, efficient data and workflow management, technology, team-based operations and personalized service. Recent projects for The Room include St. Vincent, Her, The Giver, True Detective, Marco Polo, Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown, and Years of Living Dangerously.
Murray will apply a similar approach to the full range of Technicolor-PostWorks’ film and television operations. “Ben will be our creative and technical lead, focusing on workflow design, training, talent management and recruiting,” DeMartin said. “He will work with clients in pre-production, oversee project management, collaborate with our engineering team, and assist in overall strategic planning.”
“We aim to streamline services for both features and episodic television,” Murray said. “We will work to provide increasingly nimble technology and a more responsive level of service across the board.”
