Foundation Gears Up for Guerrant

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!

How’s the Weather?

Though it’s been unusually cool in Chicago these days, our L.A. office has been heating up. Check out this latest project we worked on with the folks from High Wide and Handsome.  Working with Production Company Chromatic Films and director James Tooley, we put together these spoof Weather forecast spots for “Rift”, a new video game by Trion.  These are the web spots but they also finished for Broadcast and are airing on SyFy, FX, and G4!

Anna Patel edited all the spots while Jamin Clutcher handled the graphics.  Color by Tom Rovak, audio mix by Ryan Pribyl, and produced by Stacy Paris; as always, a true team effort from our brilliant staff.

Blissful Buzz

Foundation Audio Engineer, Ryan Pribyl recently collaborated with composers Elliot Hunt and Daniel Alcheh, of Alcheh & Hunt,  on the score for indie film East Fifth Bliss, starring Dexter’s Michael C. Hall, Lucy Liu, Peter Fonda and Brie Larson.

The music was recorded at multiple studios in both Chicago and LA and mixed in 5.1 surround by Ryan and Eliot at our Chicago office’s audio suite.

The film premiered just last month at the Newport Beach Film Festival and was chosen to headline the festival out of 450 participating films from all over the world.

We were thrilled to be a part of this film and hope you will take a minute to check out the movie site, which features some of the music.

Stumpfified

We are pleased to welcome Editor Christina Stumpf to the Foundation family! Christina brings her intuition and passion for storytelling to the team, after a ten year run at the Whitehouse. Drawn to diverse material, she’s cut campaigns across genres for such brands as Miller, Orbitz, Cadillac, Sears, and Office Max, for whose web video “Jewelry” was shortlisted at Cannes.

Stumpf’s long form credits include,”Hidden in Plain Sight”, a documentary in collaboration with UN Goodwill Ambassador Julia Ormond; “Hidden in Plain Sight”, with the support of former President Clinton, has helped raise over $1 million to promote awareness and help eradicate human trafficking worldwide.

President Samantha Hart adds, “We are thrilled that Christina has joined us and are looking forward to her playing both a creative and leadership role at our company.” Welcome Christina, we all look forward to working with you!
