Editor,Grant MacDowell, who worked most recently at Optimus, has joined the LA. staff.

Foundation Editor Suzie Moore and Sr. Assistant Editor B Stover recently entered a Make an Ad contest for Sally Hansen… and WON a top spot among the finalists! The brand purchased their spot, along with 5 others, for use in an upcoming campaign. Brittany “B” says, “We entered the contest because we wanted to make beauty products appealing in a new and different way.” Click the pic to view the spot!
B and Suzie co-directed “Salon Effects Fashion Show” and shot it on the stage at Foundation Content. “Being a part of the directing process was so satisfying because it allowed me to see the whole idea come to life!”, says B. “I wasn’t even sure if we were going to go through with shooting the idea at first, but when I saw the script that B wrote, there was no choice but to film it!”, Suzie continues.
B and Suzie collaborated on the editorial and graphics for the spot – Check it out here!

In Los Angeles, James Lipetzky directed a piece for United Way of Orange County. Shot over five days on location in Orange County, Foundation’s Evan Cohen pulled double duty on this shoot as both Line Producer and AD.
The shoot culminated with 50 people on the beach in Newport Beach. James Lipetzky commented; “I was deeply moved by some of the stories I encountered while on this shoot, of those helped by United Way. The work they do to help those in need really is exceptional.” Stay tuned for more on this piece in the future!

Megan Guerrant has joined the Team at Foundation Content in Chicago as a producer, and we are thrilled to have her!
Prior to honing her skills in the technical world of color and finishing at Filmworkers, she spent six years at DraftFCB as a production business manager. The fact that she also has experience in the world of event production from a nearly four year position at event production company Williams/Gerard Productions is a bonus as Foundation continues to expand the scope of their creative business model into new and exciting arenas.
Joining Foundation also brings her back to the beginning of her career where she spent time working on independent films with Christopher Coppola and music videos at Black Dog Films/RSA. Guerrant says, ” I am excited about getting involved creatively in the projects I work on. There is a lot of opportunity at Foundation for me to explore my creative side as well as my strategic/business side.”
Foundation President, Samantha Hart says, “Our EP, Tracy Heropkie and I have known and admired Megan for quite some time. Now that our Los Angeles office has taken off, we found a need to have another producer on hand to cover the influx of work coming into Chicago for our graphics, color, smoke and finishing departments as well as editorial. It’s exciting to see our LA clients clamoring to get a color session with Tom Rovak or to work with our talented designers. Having run this company for the past six years, it is refreshing to see that work coming into this marketplace.”
Executive Producer, Tracy Heropkie adds, “With the recent addition of editor Christina Stumpf, we are looking to add one additional editor and then we think the Chicago office will be positioned right where we want it to be.”
Welcome to the team, Megan!
